Heartland Food Corp.


In 2003, the partners of 1848 Capital Partners LLC led an investor group, through its investment vehicle Heartland Food Corp., that acquired one hundred twenty-seven (127) Burger King restaurants out of the bankrupt estate of AmeriKing, Inc. Heartland Food Corp. subsequently turned the company around with a new management team and many “add-on” acquisitions, growing the company to 248 stores and the second largest franchisee in the Burger King system.  The company was sold in December 2006 to GSO Capital Partners, now an affiliate of the Blackstone Group.
