Quantum Partners advises the shareholders of Dulce GmbH on the financing through Paarl Equity

Gastronomy / Franchise

Project highlights

Dulce is an established brand for high-quality ice cream and chocolate. Dulce has developed a system gastronomy branch concept that achieves high capacity utilization all year round with a two-season strategy. The fresh preparation of Dulce ice cream in each of the 27 branches ensures that the highest quality and a special flavor experience is always achieved. Dulce is a lifestyle brand for high-quality food.

Within 5 years, Dulce has built up 27 branches, both in its own operations and as a franchiser. Especially in the last 3 years, the company has grown far above the average of system gastronomy. Dulce has created processes and structures that enable further rapid expansion.

Dulce is looking for an investor to invest in further expansion into new owned stores, the development of the brand and the partial takeover of franchise stores. Furthermore, the shares of the strategic shareholder are also on offer. A majority or minority shareholding by the new investor is conceivable. Dulce has found an ideal partner in Paarl Equity, who, in addition to capital, brings experience in building franchises.
