Grano is a private investment and advisory firm.

We focus on small to mid-size acquisitions in retail, wholesale and manufacturing. We target companies where we can add significant value in growing both top and bottom line. Our sweet spot ranges from $2-15 million in invested capital which is sourced from our own funds as well as funds from our partners who include institutional sub-debt lenders, high net worth individuals and specialized private equity investors.

We focus our advisory services on clients seeking financing, acquisition or sale where the size or type of transaction is not a good fit for us directly. We can support restructuring efforts, raising of needed capital or identifying strategic buyers. When our clients need our expertise to improve performance, we can provide traditional consulting services. Our client relationships are critical to us at Grano.

While our firm is only five years old, our leadership team has over 100 years of combined experience in retail, consumer businesses and transaction financing.
