American Restaurant announces the acquisition of Fronteras Mexican Grill & Cantina

RBR Staff Writer Published 13 January 2014

American Restaurant Holdings, Inc. (ARHI) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has completed its asset purchase of Fronteras Mexican Grill & Cantina (www.fronterasgrill.com).

The acquisition was completed via ARHI's wholly owned subsidiary, Fronteras Acquisition, Inc.

Located in the Alhambra suburb of Los Angeles, Fronteras was founded in 2006 and has an extensive operating history.

Several highlights of the transaction include:

High Visibility Location - located on Main Street in the heart of the city which is a high vehicle / high foot traffic destination serving an attractive demographic
Barrier to Entry / Limited Competition - there are very few Mexican concepts in the immediate area and barriers to entry exist for competing concepts to open nearby
Attractive Fixed Costs - fixed costs for the location are below-industry average
Additional Growth Potential - management feels that there is significant growth potential in furthering the Fronteras brand and visibility in the Southern California market

"We are excited about the acquisition of Fronteras Mexican Grill and Cantina. During the course of business we review many potential transactions and this location met our criteria on various levels. We look forward to working closely with Fronteras management and its employees to continue to grow the brand", stated Tim M. Betts, the Chief Executive Officer of American Restaurant Holdings, Inc.
