Brentwood Associates and Sixth Street, two private equity firms, have made an investment in Far West Services, a franchisee of Wingstop restaurants.
Founded in 2003 and headquartered in Costa Mesa, Calif., Far West currently operates over 100 restaurant locations across California, Nevada, Washington, Colorado and Utah. Far West’s CEO and president, Jorge Ortiz, will continue to lead the company alongside chairman, founder and brand ambassador Danny Sonenshine and the rest of Far West’s management team.
“Far West is a great fit with our strategy of investing in high-growth, exceptional consumer businesses,” states Rahul Aggarwal, partner at Brentwood. “We look forward to leveraging our expertise in restaurants, food service and franchising to help management continue Far West’s growth into the future.”
