BURNABY, B.C. – June 5, 2018. Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria (“Famoso”), a Canadian full-service pizza chain consisting of 30 locations in Alberta, B.C., Ontario and Saskatchewan, has been acquired by FDF Restaurant Brandz (“FDF Brandz”), a leading privately-held franchising company of brands such as Ricky’s All Day Grill, Ricky’s Country, Ricky’s hotel partners, and Ricky’s Cafés, as well as Fatbuger locations. Capital Canada Limited (“Capital Canada”) acted as financial advisor to Famoso.

We are delighted to bring the popular Famoso chain into the fold and welcome the franchise owners of these neighbourhood pizzerias known for using authentic ingredients and processes to create flavorful Neapolitan pizzas and other tasty choices,” said Frank Di Benedetto, CEO and owner of FDF Brandz. He sees significant growth potential in the successful chain that was started by three young restaurant entrepreneurs – Justin Lussier, Jason Allard and Chris Bullock – and is confident that the time is right for FDF Brandz to bring its management franchising experience to take the chain to a new and higher level.

Jack and Capital Canada’s restaurant transaction experience and industry relationships were an invaluable resource throughout the entire process and we were very happy with their hard work, patience and persistence on this transaction.” – Justin Lussier, CEO, Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria
