Dave’s Killer Bread is a family-run bakery with a mission: make the world a better place, one loaf of bread at a time. Its founder, Dave Dahl, has had his share of ups and downs, having spent 15 years in prison for various offenses. His story is truly one of redemption. Today, he pours his heart and soul into making the highest quality bread and making a positive impact in the community.
As Dave and his team looked to spread this message, a healthy dose of capital was required. However, this required the right partner – one who was willing to support a brand led by someone with a less-than-stellar past and staffed by ex convicts. The Meriwether Strategic Options Advisory team was able to find that partner – a leading private equity firm, Goode Partners, who supports the Dave’s Killer Bread vision and core values. As a result, the brand is now able to help more consumers “say no to bread on drugs.”
