Raising Working Capital With Revenue-Based Funding
“Mrs. Fields is the most dynamic product extension we have been involved with,” said Jerry Isaacson, founder and CEO of Lacertus Brands. “Coupled with 400 branded retail locations, a robust online presence and one of the best brand awareness positions in the industry, the financing from Decathlon will allow us to build on last year’s successful launch with both increased store counts and additional SKUs.”
“Lacertus Branding’s opportunity with the Mrs. Fields cookie dough license is a clear example of how our non-dilutive, revenue-based funding can help move the needle,” said Decathlon Capital’s John Borchers. “Jerry’s team of consumer packaging veterans have the experience and operational knowledge to execute a national rollout of this scale.
