Growing Restaurants into Thriving Brands

We're charting a new course for restaurant investment by improving access to capital, supporting your operations, managing your development and championing your multi-channel growth.

We offer mentoring and ops support, and leave you the majority owner.

Full Course offers mentoring, operations support, development management, product development, franchising, and more - while only asking a minority stake and with no capital calls.
why fast casual?

Freshly-prepared, higher-quality food in a casual space.

In 2021, fast casual same-store growth outpaced all other food service categories, including family dining, casual dining, quick service, and upscale casual dining.

why now?

Consistent growth bottlenecks make scaling past 3 units unfeasible.

We solve the issues of scalability of operations, managing development, and access to capital by building multi-revenue-channel businesses, deploying the funds, and managing the brand expansion.

We are offering a new way of looking at investment. Our innovative approach combines the best parts of venture capital and private equity.

We offer mentoring and ops support, and leave you the majority owner.

Exactly what you need—we are the best of both—and we do it by design. We offer mentoring, operations support, development management, product development, franchising, and more while only asking a minority stake and no capital calls.

full course is more than private equity

Wait. What is a capital call?

A capital call is the right of an investor to ask you for money for development (and more). And if you can’t pay it, you could lose more equity. We understand the burden that puts on early stage restaurant owners, so simply put: We don't do that.
