Invest

We Are Smart, Strategic Investors

We Love Investing in Early Stage Brands!

We invested early in Sweetgreen, CAVA, QDOBA, and Chloe. We are always looking for emerging, early stage brands to invest in.

Welcome to Franinvest

Young, early stage brands who have the right combination of unique branding, strong positioning and exceptional food get distracted when they are cash strapped, and operations inevitably suffers. We can only imagine how much faster our brands could have grown if they had easier access to growth capital in the very early days. We are here to bridge that gap.
