Newport Beach, CA  (RestaurantNews.comNational Franchise Sales (NFS) – the leading firm in franchised restaurant re-sales announced today a re-structuring of its Restaurant Refranchising Services.

NFS Restaurant Refranchising Services will be led by Rick Kowalski, Managing Director for Restaurant Refranchising Services, and staffed with NFS Advisors who have extensive experience in refranchising.

NFS has partnered in the past with many brands to refranchise their company assets including Sizzler, El Pollo Loco, Denny’s, Carrow’s and Baja Fresh.

“Refranchising can be a very powerful strategy for restaurant brands. The franchisor can raise capital with these divestitures for many reasons including remodel projects, acquisitions, to pay down debt or even launch a new product,” said Kowalski. “NFS is uniquely positioned to help brands refranchise because of their established buyer base and excellent reputation, built up over 37 years of doing business with franchisors coast to coast.”
