Dennis Monroe Receives 2014 Special Achievement Dealmaker Award from Franchise Times


Dennis Monroe was the recipient of the Special Achievement award in the 2014 Franchise Times Dealmakers, the second annual project recognizing the boldest players driving mergers and acquisitions in franchising. The award, announced on February 11, honors Dennis’s 30-year career in franchise finance.

Among the winners were also PizzaRev and Buffalo Wild Wings, whose strategic partnership was forged last year with the assistance from Monroe Moxness Berg.

“These dealmakers are smart, relentless and creative in driving capital toward the best companies in franchising,” says Beth Ewen, managing editor, who oversees the Franchise Times Dealmakers project. “We’re proud to highlight their work and share their tactics with the readers of Franchise Times.”

Dealmaker award winners were selected from nominations for deals completed between July 2012-December 2013, by a 13-member panel of judges, all experts in franchise finance, who considered criteria including deal complexity and impact on company performance.

The 2014 Franchise Times Dealmakers will accept awards and tell how they landed their deals at a gala awards luncheon Thursday, March 27, 2014, when the Franchise Times Deal of the Year will also be revealed. The luncheon is a highlight of the Franchise Finance & Growth Conference, March 26 and 27, at The Venetian in Las Vegas. All winners will be featured in the April edition of Franchise Times.
