Superior Capital Partners has sold Dianne’s Fine Desserts to Geneva Glen Capital

Lincoln International (“Lincoln”), a leading global mid-market investment bank, is pleased to announce that Dianne’s Fine Desserts, Inc. (“Dianne’s” or the “Company”), a portfolio company of Superior Capital Partners (“Superior”), has been sold to Geneva Glen Capital.

Dianne’s is the leading provider of gourmet private label desserts in North America, with a product offering extending from cheesecakes and layer cakes, to brownies and bars, to a variety of individual desserts. The Company brings its desserts to market in partnership with a premier base of long-standing customers across multiple channels, including broadline distributors, national restaurant chains and retail grocers. Dianne’s was carved out of Heinz Foodservice as a standalone platform in 2012. Since that time, management has broadened the Company’s product line, won exciting new accounts, penetrated in-store bakery and built out an industry-leading infrastructure with a focus on innovation, quality and service to ensure the Company’s ongoing success.

The sale of Dianne’s continues Lincoln’s success at representing leading companies in baked goods, food service, and private label food. Since the beginning of 2014, Lincoln has sold four baked goods companies. With its unsurpassed track record, Lincoln has knowledge and access to the leading private equity firms and strategic acquirers specializing in these categories.

Lincoln acted as the exclusive sell-side advisor to Dianne’s, working closely with the management team and shareholders throughout the sale process to provide advisory expertise and manage the marketing, due diligence and negotiation phases of the transaction.
