Investing in ZT QSR is perfect for those who prefer moderate risk with current returns within a stable industry that has a strong growth outlook.

Key tenants for these investments include:

This venture began in 2014, when ZT Corporate integrated itself into the restaurant business by starting a new portfolio entity, ZT Restaurants, LP, and investing in several Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen locations. We exited the franchise with a successful IRR of over 23% and swiftly moved onward with the Hardee’s/Carl’s Jr. brand of restaurants via a new portfolio entity, ZT QSR Fund, LP, in June of 2017. The fund now owns and operates 50 Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr. QSR locations in Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, and Texas.
