Welcome to the American Franchise Capital website!

Today I am very excited to announce and inform all of you about a new milestone for our company. We have a new partner that has invested in our company: Quilvest PE USA.

Firstly, I want to make sure everyone knows “Nothing Changes.” All operations goals and expectations remain the same. Bill Georgas, “me,” will become CEO of the AFC companies. Rob Andreottola will remain COO, and Mike Rummel is officially joining the company as our CFO. All AFC Management Directors and their teams stay the same.

What has changed?

Quilvest PE USA has become our partner. Quilvest is a large “Family Office Investor” that wants to invest in our company’s future growth! AFC over the past 5 years has developed into a “first in class, tier one, restaurant franchise operator.” Our Operations platform/organization is well positioned for growth in both the Applebee’s and Taco Bell brands. Quilvest is a “restaurant industry” financial partner with substantial financial resources and expertise to help us take the company to the next level. I mean bigger! Please review their website at www.quilvest.com

What else has changed?

Trevor Ganshaw will no longer continue as an owner/partner of the company going forward. Trevor has been an integral part of the formation of the company, and I thank him for his early commitment to the company’s formation. Thanks, Trevor…and good luck on your next endeavor!

What’s next? Tomorrow, business as usual. In the coming months and years expect opportunities for all of you to continue to advance with the company’s growth.

Congratulations to you all!


Bill Georgas
CEO; American Franchise Capital
