Exclusive Financial Advisor to General Atlantic on Minority Investment in Torchy’s Tacos

Torchy’s Tacos, a Texas based fast-casual restaurant serving untraditional tacos, received a significant minority investment from General Atlantic, a leading global growth equity firm. General Atlantic hired Financo to provide insight into the restaurant industry and guidance in navigating the competitive investment process. General Atlantic joined the five founding partners of the restaurant chain to help lead their next stage of growth.

“Financo’s strategic advice and mentorship was instrumental in General Atlantic prevailing in a competitive sale process. Their deep knowledge of the restaurant sector and value-added perspective on M&A dynamics guided us to a favorable outcome. We look forward to working with Financo again in the near future.”

– Andrew Crawford, Global Head of Retail & Consumer, General Atlantic
