Fox Williams LLP complete the multi million pound sale of the Costa Coffee franchise partner, Coffee Snobs Limited.

August 12, 2014

Fox Williams advised the Sellers of Coffee Snobs Limited, owner of fourteen Costa Coffee franchises, on its sale to Kuwait Stock Exchange listed Kout Food Group KSCC.

Kout Food owns a number of UK restaurant franchises including Burger King, Pizza Hut and KFC.

Paul Messenger, joint shareholder of Coffee Snobs, said “This was a massive step for us and one which I don’t think we’d have got through without Fox Williams’ help and support. You’re a great team and we wouldn’t hesitate recommending you…”

Paul Osborne, senior partner at Fox Williams, commented “The Sellers’ advisory team worked really well together to achieve a closing before the Summer break. We are delighted to have achieved a successful outcome within a tight timeframe.”

Senior partner Paul Osborne led the Fox Williams’ team and was assisted by senior corporate associate Howard Taylor, senior real estate associate Rebecca Watkins and corporate associate Andrew McGlashan.
