Will Deeprose, Partner Clyde & Co LLP

We have just completed our first transaction acting for the Adil Group – the acquisition of Crompton Retail Park, Doncaster from Canal & River Trust for circa £6m.  Raja, Stephen and the wider team have been a pleasure to deal with: they listened to advice and were commercially minded, straightforward and pragmatic in quickly reaching decisions.  They are obviously highly experienced in property matters and, whilst busy, always very happy to take a call, discuss a point and agree a way forward.  Above all else, they have a good sense of humour and we had some laughs whilst getting the deal done within the agreed timeframe.  I look forward to working with them further in the future.

D H Gough, Principal – Commercial Property Consultants

I have been involved in the property business both as a principal and agent for nearly 50 years and it is a pleasure when as in this transaction (purchase of the freehold building 186 Earls Court Road, London SW5 9QG by the Adil Group) the parties and their advisors all act transparently, promptly and with integrity. It says something that even under the pressure of Covid lockdown, the Adil Group managed to complete the purchase in little over 4 weeks from my initial meeting with Raja Adil. Thank you for being so straightforward throughout and I look forward to conducting further business with you in the near future.

Neel Shah, Managing Director – Deekay Property Limited

We dealt with Raja Adil of the Adil Group when our clients decided to sell their KFC DT and PIzza Hut investment in Cumbernauld, Scotland. The Adil Group performed impeccably and managed to complete the purchase within a number of weeks as originally agreed. We would welcome another opportunity to transact with them again.

Jordan Fendick, Associate – Jones Lang LaSalle

I have worked with the Adil Group as their Business Rates advisor across their c150 properties across England and Scotland since 2017. Through this, I speak to Raja and his team on a daily basis and we have developed a close working relationship. Working with the team has been very easy and their speed of response, decisiveness and understanding has been key in delivering great results on significant projects across the portfolio. The Adil Group’s drive to succeed at all levels is infectious and I look forward to working with them for many years to come.

Andy Brattesani, UK Head of Franchising at HSBC

It was fantastic to hear from the Franchisee Multi-Unit finalists and learn about their journey into franchising. Adil Group impressed the judges with its impressive figures and charity initiatives.

“It’s been a difficult year for all businesses, so we are pleased to see members of the franchise community thriving, having adapted to operate successfully despite the difficulties thrown their way.

Pip Wilkins, CEO of the British Franchise Association

Raja is testament to how great leaders can achieve great things using the franchising model. The Adil Group management team represents home grown talent that are all committed to delivering outstanding operational standards within every brand they own.

“There are more franchise systems than ever before, showing that businesses are choosing franchising as an ideal model for them. The fact Adil Group managed to win this accolade, when so many new companies are entering into franchising, is a testament to the company’s values and culture.

AG Gallagher, Chairman, Gallagher UK Ltd

I am delighted that we have done business on the Gallagher Leisure Park at Scunthorpe and I hope this will be the first of many deals. Now that we know what each other does, let’s try and do further business going forward.

Also, when we have any restaurants in the future, I will make sure that you have first and last “bite” of the cherry.

You are a fine young man and I am sure your father is proud of you just as you as of your father.

Keep up the good work Raja, I look forward to seeing you soon, but in the meantime, Good Luck, take care, God Bless and KEEP ATTACKING // ( I know you will)
All the very best – always.

Edward George, Investment Surveyor, Montague Evans

I can confirm that the we have sold to the Adil Group and they performed to every expectation. Our client (Gallagher Group) was very specific to timescale and deliverability to which Raja and his team performed. They are able to turn around buy side opportunities very swiftly and have demonstrated they are serious investors in the sector. We have no hesitation to deal with him again.

Nalin De Silva, Deal Advisory Partner, KPMG

I had the pleasure of working with the Adil Group on their proposed acquisition of a £50m+ business. Raja and his team were very professional and pragmatic in their approach, which was extremely important in overcoming some of the hurdles faced in a challenging M&A auction process.

Ultimately, despite having spent a lot of time and resources, the Adil Group made the appropriate decision to decline the opportunity to complete the deal as we both agreed that the terms were not favourable following the diligence performed.

Robin Raban-Williams, Colliers International

Throughout our dealings with the Adil Group we have found them to be a highly professional and straightforward company to deal with. Raja Adil has a very clear understanding of property matters and is also commercially minded when it comes to decisions. We have found the decision making process to be clear and faster than almost any other client. Deal making with this client is as smooth and professional as it can be. With access to cash and a string of national franchises there are opportunities in many locations and many different property types.
