RICHMOND, VA / BALTIMORE, MD – June 13, 2024 – Matrix Capital Markets Group, Inc., a leading, independent investment bank, has advised Land O’Sun Management Corporation d/b/a Fast Track on the sale of its petroleum marketing, convenience retail and quick-service restaurant businesses to Anabi Real Estate Development, LLC and its affiliates d/b/a Anabi/Rebel. Headquartered in Gainesville, Florida, Fast Track is a leading petroleum marketing, convenience retail and QSR company, operating 17 convenience stores, 10 co-located QSRs, and two stand-alone QSRs in Northern Florida.

Land O’Sun Management was founded in 1996 when local businessmen Alan Fogg, Richard Rentz and Stephen Fogg purchased 38 gas stations in Northern Florida. After turning around their initial acquisition to become successful operating stores in just four years, the founders wanted to continue growing Land O’Sun and purchased 13 additional stores in 2000, which provided access to the QSR business. Over the next 23 years, Land O’Sun began integrating national QSR brands into their stores, including Arby’s, Wendy’s, Dairy Queen, and Subway. In 2022, Land O’Sun opened its latest state of the art new-to-industry Fast Track store in Gainesville, Florida, which includes a car wash, beer cave, and made-to-order deli. Over the last 28 years, through excellent leadership and execution, the original founders have built one of the premier petroleum marketing, convenience retail and QSR companies in Florida.

Matrix provided merger and acquisition advisory services to Land O’Sun Management Corporation, which included valuation advisory, marketing the business through a confidential, structured sale process, and negotiation of the sale. The transaction was managed by Cedric Fortemps, CFA, Co-Head of Matrix’s Downstream Energy & Convenience Retail Investment Banking Group; Nathan Wah, CPA, Senior Associate; and Reilly Erhardt, CPA, Analyst.

Alan Fogg, President of Fast Track, commented, “As a family business, deciding to sell is both an economic and emotional decision. Our prior experience with Matrix, conducting periodic business evaluations of our company, gave us confidence that Matrix was the right partner for this transaction. The support they provided in presale planning and through the entire sale process proved our confidence was warranted.”

Mr. Fortemps added, “Our relationship with Richard, Alan and Steve began close to a decade ago and since then, they’ve done a tremendous job strategically growing their business to make it what it is today. We are honored to have advised them on the sale of the incredible company they’ve worked so hard to build.”
