Coleman Represents Copeland Family in Major Deal
J. Grant Coleman represented the Copeland family interests in connection with the sale of the Popeye’s recipes and formulas used in the preparation of many of Popeye’s core menu items by Diversified Foods and Seasonings, LLC, (DFS), to Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen (PLK) and the extension of the agreement between DFS and PLK for the manufacturing and supply of the proprietary spices and other Popeye’s products.
"Reuniting the recipe with Popeyes strengthens the relationship between the Copeland family and Popeyes. The transaction will allow DFS to focus on what we do best for Popeyes, producing and innovating the highest quality products, including cooked foods, spices, and breading systems," Al Copeland Jr., chairman of the board of Diversified and of Al Copeland Investments, said in a statement.
