“I founded The Cypress Group over 25 years ago to fill a void in the franchise and restaurant marketplace. By providing focused solutions, Cypress became one of the first advisory firms to specialize in middle-market transactions in the industry. While others have come and gone, we have never strayed from our vision and remain committed to our area of expertise.”
-Dean Zuccarello, CEO and Founding Partner
