Carey has helped private equity firm Mesoamerica acquire a majority stake in Chilean ice-cream shop operator Heladerías Savory.

The Albagli, Nassar and Aguirre families, who sold the shares, relied on Chilean law firm Albagli Zaliasnik.

Unifood, the food chain operator in which Mesoamerica holds a majority stake, becomes the largest operator of fast-food stores in Chile as a result of the transaction. Savory operates more than 100 ice-cream stores across Chile.

Alongside Savory, other chains under Unifood Holding’s control include Pedro Juan & Diego, Pollo Stop, and Fuente Nicanor.

The deal, whose value remains confidential, closed on 14 December.
