Restaurant Brands International's Billion-Dollar Deal

Jan 16, 2024

Restaurant Brands International Inc.  has struck a $1 billion deal. Restaurant Brands International and Carrols Restaurant Group, Inc.  announced that they have reached an agreement for RBI to acquire all of Carrols issued and outstanding shares that are not already held by RBI or its affiliates for $9.55 per share in an all-cash transaction, or an aggregate total enterprise value of approximately $1.0 billion, representing a 23.1% premium to Carrols 30-day volume-weighted average price as of January 12, 2024 and a 13.4% premium to the January 12, 2024 closing price. RBI and its affiliates currently hold approximately 15% of Carrols outstanding equity. Carrols is the largest Burger King  franchisee in the United States today, operating 1,022 Burger King restaurants in 23 states that generated approximately $1.8 billion of system sales during the 12-months ended September 30, 2023. Carrols also owns and operates 60 Popeyes  restaurants in six states. Josh Kobza, CEO of RBI said, "This is a terrific example of our commitment to put our capital to work to accelerate growth and support (Carrols') team in their broader efforts to have a more competitive Burger King restaurant base. The strategic merits of this acquisition are very compelling and consistent with our objective to invest our capital in long-term, high-return opportunities." 600-Store Remodel The transaction is part of Burger King's Reclaim the Flame plan to accelerate sales growth and drive franchisee profitability. The transaction follows the brand's initial $400 million investment announced in September 2022 to drive high quality remodels, improve operations, enhance marketing and support ongoing technology and digital priorities. Burger King expects to significantly accelerate Carrols' current rate of remodels to bring the acquired portfolio to modern image over the next five years. To accomplish this, the team plans to invest approximately $500 million of capital, funded by Carrols' operating cash flow, to remodel approximately 600 acquired restaurants that are not currently considered modern image. In the next five to seven years, Burger King ultimately plans to refranchise the vast majority of the portfolio to new or existing smaller franchise operators who live in their local communities. Burger King will maintain a company restaurant portfolio of a couple of hundred restaurants for strategic innovation, training, and operator development purposes. 1/10/2024 Legion WFM Now Available on SAP Store Legion Technologies , an innovator in workforce management (WFM), announced the integration of its award-winning Legion WFM platform with SAP SuccessFactors solutions, allowing companies with hourly workers to simplify their employee lifecycle management.

The new partnership with Onbe simplifies the payments side of restaurant management by providing a tip-tracking solution from TimeForge, integrated with Onbe’s digital payout offerings, to 14,000 restaurants, grocery stores and other retail groups and their approximately 840,000 employees. Through TimeForge’s partnership with Custom Business Solutions (CBS), this tip-tracking solution will be an option available to the approximately 11,000 CBS customer locations on all of their supported POS platforms, including NorthStar, Micros, Aloha, and POSitouch. Restaurant operators will be able to calculate tips quickly and accurately at the end of every shift and pay workers immediately via reloadable digital cards. Just 16% of diners pay for their restaurant meals with cash, according to research from PYMNTS , with the remainder using digital and electronic payment methods ranging from credit cards to mobile wallets. As a result, restaurants often don’t have enough cash on hand to tip out staff at the end of a shift, and tip distribution creates additional work and complexity for busy managers. TimeForge’s software solution eliminates the hassle of calculating tip pools and reconciling credit card tips by making it simple to sync data between POS and payroll platforms, ensuring that restaurant employees receive accurate payouts. When integrated with Onbe’s payouts gateway, the solution allows restaurants to replace cash tips with more secure and convenient options that fit the way today’s workforce prefers to pay and get paid: digitally and instantly. “Payout choice is fundamental to Onbe’s offerings – empowering individuals with the secure, fast and convenient options they want while enabling businesses to easily manage those payouts, reducing risk and complexity,” said Bala Janakiraman, CEO of Onbe. “We’re proud to partner with TimeForge in helping evolve a traditionally cash-heavy process to deliver in-demand digital payout experiences, starting with the restaurant industry, making tip distribution fast and seamless.” With the fully managed solution, restaurants can not only automate many aspects of the tip distribution process, but they benefit from Onbe’s features such as built-in fraud prevention and escheatment services that make money management and bookkeeping even simpler. Workers have access to simple online and mobile account tools, allowing them to track, manage and move their money with ease. In industries known for slim profit margins and high operating costs, such as in restaurants and the broader leisure and hospitality sectors, streamlining the tip distribution process is one more way to yield time and cost savings. 1/10/2024 W Barcelona Reports 60% Increase in Guest Spend The W Barcelona  hotel, situated on the famous Barceloneta Boardwalk, recently partnered with IRIS , the leading provider of digital F&B and guest experience platforms, to offer a broader digital ordering experience resulting in a boost in revenue and efficiencies. It selected both its mobile dining solution to deliver an in-room dining service and a world of culinary delights direct to its guest’s doors, in addition to its digital guest directory solution to provide all guests with direct access to hotel and local area information, whilst at the same time maximising revenue and profits. The luxury hotel, which is popular with both residential and day guests, has reported significant results since implementation. Most notably, a 60% increase in average guest spend across all operations via mobile dining compared to traditional dining. More specifically, since deploying digital dining, 35% of all F&B room service orders are now placed digitally, accounting for nearly half (46%) of all revenue. Commenting on the results following installation, Martin Daniel Voštiar, B&F Coordinator, W Barcelona said, “Guests appreciate the ease and efficiency of serving themselves and enjoy the convenience of being able to access information wherever they are, in their own time – they are fully in control of their experience. “The IRIS app is a convenient and holistic tool that ensures guests have all the information at their disposal and the ordering and booking process is as seamless and enjoyable as possible. Remarkably intuitive, it boasts a user-friendly interface that’s easy to navigate and manage. Considering the increase in guest spending through online orders, it’s undeniably delivering a substantial return on our investment. Operationally, the team has reported significant improvements in efficiencies and guest service management. In-room dining has reduced the workload for its “Whatever/Whenever” team who previously took all room service orders over the phone. They now have more time available to focus on other aspects of their role and enhance guest service, particularly during peak times when phone lines are congested, eliminating the need for guests to wait on hold to place an order. It has also assisted the In-room dining team, allowing them to concentrate solely on preparing and delivering orders more efficiently. Alongside mobile dining and ordering, the digital guest directory means guests can easily access information on the hotel facilities, fitness classes, special events and what’s on in the local area. Additionally, guests can download a range of newspapers and magazines, book appointments at the Spa, barber and Tattoo Studio, and view information on the hotel’s services and sustainability policies. A wealth of information is clearly visible and accessible in the palm of the guest’s hand, wherever they are in the property or local area. From a guest perspective, they have found it simple and easy to use, and have been swift to adopt the simplicity of self-service ordering from the comfort of their own device, particularly during peak times when staff are busy. The hotel has invested heavily in promoting the app (accessible via QR codes) at check-in to ensure guests are provided with complete and accurate information on its facilities and services in the most convenient way possible. Offering a more cost-effective, sustainable alternative to traditional paper menus and directories, the hotel team can simply edit and add information online as and when required without the costly and inconvenient job of re-printing and replacing material in all 473 bedrooms. Likewise, they can amend and keep menus and opening hours up to date to ensure the app is always accurate with correct information at no extra cost. Multi-lingual, it delivers a consistent experience for guests, regardless of their nationality and reduced guest wait times with a direct integration to the Micros POS. Voštiar continues, “Following its success we are now planning to extend digital dining in 2024 to our Salt Beach Club. Guests will be able to access digital menus via QR codes printed on the sun beds. They will be able to place their order, have a dip in the sea and return to their lounger with their order waiting for them and we look forward to fulfilling this enhanced guest experience next year.”
