1. A more holistic perspective on what
leads to happiness 

2. Growing importance of social media

3. Increased fear of missing out (FOMO)

Who and Why?

There are new concepts everywhere – and they all need three things, all of which LCP can provide: Expertise, Capital, and Real Estate

Many operators are experts in their market, their store, their experience and they need a more global outlook on growing their business – from new revenue streams, new designs, new markets, or new technology.

They generally have EBITDA margins between 25%-40%.

Their executives and our team gel – chemistry is everything.

They have a story – how the partners found each other, how the business was started, or just something they do better than everyone else.

Most importantly, alignment, they have a very clear “why” to what they do.  Whys drive companies and customers.

So What's With The Name?

la·gniappe  | ˈlan-ˌyap , lan-ˈyap 
"We picked up one excellent word – a word worth traveling to New Orleans to get; a nice, limber, expressive, handy word: lagniappe. [...] It is the equivalent of the thirteenth roll in a baker’s dozen. It is something thrown in, gratis, for good measure.” – Mark Twain
 Lagniappes aren’t expected, but they greatly enhance your experience.

Through our expertise and network in the retail entertainment space, we provide entrepreneurs with strategic guidance on growth, operations, real estate development, design and construction. So much more than capital to help entreprenuers not only start, but also succeed.
 That’s our lagniappe – our little something extra.
