The Wakea company, originating from Almería and franchising its Hawaiian & American Food brand, has just completed a capitalization process and the entry of national and international investors, an operation that has been advised by our firm, SURCO LEGAL, a firm specialized in commercial advisory and business law, as well as business consulting.
The Wakea Group (www.wakearestaurant.com) is a company born in Almería, becoming the first hospitality franchise in this province. The company was born with the goal of making its cuisine known nationally, based on a fusion of American and Hawaiian food. Through the collaborative hospitality process that it has carried out over the past few months through its Almerian subsidiary, structuring and executing a novel model of capital participation and planned investment, numerous investors have bet on the new restaurant project opened in the capital of Almería, both national and also residents outside our country, thus facilitating the progress and expansion of this hospitality group.
The professionals of Surco Legal (www.surcolegal.es), led by its director, lawyer Raúl Montoro, have coordinated and advised on the different areas of the operation, highlighting strategic planning, contracting, and commercial law. It is not the only significant operation of the firm carried out during the year 2023, having participated and provided consulting and advisory services also to other companies in operations of establishing subsidiaries abroad, divestment with business transfers, fiscal reorganization of family groups, or constitution of business groups or acquisition of companies (SPA), in sectors such as hospitality, real estate, or agriculture, among others.
