After negotiations with publicly traded companies, Private Equity Groups and Private Investors, JPB's offer was chosen. DeVries then assisted with every aspect of the transaction until both parties were able to accomplish their goals. After the closing Hart was quoted, "We are going to open Mulligans all over the state of Florida in the next four or five years."
"Mulligan's is a great investment," said Greg Carey, JPB's managing director. "The plan is to grow it, which takes some time." Terms of the transaction were not disclosed but Carey said Hart still owns a "significant piece of the company."
