Note from CEO and Founder: Investing in the Next Big Thing, Emerging Franchise Companies

In News by Javier Parraga

The stated mission of ZGrowth Capital Fund is to identify proven, emerging franchise companies that have a strong management team combined with attractive unit economics.  The Fund will make strategic growth capital investments in companies to grow its portfolio.  As part of the Fund’s strategic investment, ZGrowth Partners will become the exclusive franchise sales team for its portfolio companies, working collaboratively with these portfolio companies to expand their franchise networks while positioning each entity for a successful exit.

My name is Javier Parraga, CEO of ZGrowth Partners and ZGrowth Capital Fund, our new private equity vehicle.  During my long history driving franchise development growth and network expansion throughout the world, I have perfected measured franchise strategies that produce real results.

In 2009 I led a small team of talented franchise executives and together we launched Zippy Shell USA, a self-storage franchise system.  In 2015, the results of our efforts were recognized and rewarded as I led Zippy Shell to a $25 million strategic investment from private investment firm Virgo Investment Group, LLC.  This monetary event has put the valuation of Zippy Shell at over $70 million and has rewarded first round investors with a 13x+ return.  As with this and other investments, I start by assembling a talented team to combine both financial investment acumen with proven franchise sales experience to create explosive ROIs for early investors.

ZGrowth offers unique and proven solutions to dynamically expand emerging brands in the U.S. and markets across the globe.  Our team has been responsible for opening over 5,000 unit locations in the United States and over 75 countries worldwide, with many more to come.

It’s time to add a partner that will deliver its investors significant returns.  It’s time for ZGrowth Capital Fund.
