STACH realizes growth financing
April 24, 2018
Yuno Advisors advised STACH – an innovative retail concept, which has characteristics of both a modern neighborhood and deli store – as well as an informal investor with the realization of a growth financing aimed at further expansion.
STACH (www.stach-food.nl) opened its first location in 2011 in in Amsterdam. The company currently has 15 stores, mostly corner stores, located in Amsterdam, Utrecht and Overveen and employs approximately 200 people. STACH is a unique food store concept with a broad assortment of self-made ready meals, soups, salads, sandwiches, drinks and various chilled and dry groceries. The majority of the products are organic, fresh and from local suppliers. The innovative range of products are largely developed by STACH itself or in collaboration with (international) partners, whereby STACH clearly distinguishes itself from the mainstream food retail. STACH’s products can also be found in shop-in-shops within a number of Mercure hotels, Hudson’s Bay, The Hoxton Amsterdam and Harrods in London.
Founder Stach Schaberg and his business partner Esgo Kuiper have developed STACH within a few years into a prominent concept and food brand. Their ambition is to further expand the company: various openings are planned for 2018, including a new store in the westside of Amsterdam and in the city of Haarlem. To facilitate this rapid growth, STACH’s shareholder base was broadened as part of this transaction, and STACH hopes to continue to surprise with new locations and concepts.
Yuno Advisors advised both the existing shareholders of STACH and the new investor in the entire funding process. Our advisory consisted of general project coordination, due diligence, structuring of the transaction and coordination of the transaction documentation.
