Mesoamerica se convierte en accionista único de Unifood


Mesoamerica buys remaining stake in Chilean food chain operator
Eloise Hardy

Carey has helped private equity investor Mesoamerica acquire the remaining 25% stake in Chilean food chain operator Unifood, becoming its sole stakeholder.

Gamboa, Fuenzalida, Sanfeliú y Ugarte Abogados advised Unifood. The deal closed on 21 October for an undisclosed value.

Mesoamerica already owned a 75% interest in Unifood, after buying the stake back in 2016.

Unifood is the largest restaurant platform in Chile, operating brands such as Pedro, Juan & Diego, Pollo Stop, Fuente Nicanor, Heladerías Savory, Fajitas Express and XS Market.

Mesoamerica acquired a majority stake in ice-cream shop operator Heladerías Savory in 2018, a deal that Carey also worked on.
