About Us

NRD Capital is a private capital provider that aims to invest in companies offering superior products and services with compelling unit level economics. We provide both equity and debt capital structures.

Founded in 2014 by Aziz Hashim, NRD Capital is based in Atlanta and Dallas. Led by a seasoned investment team backed by a deep bench of seasoned operators, NRD Capital guides its portfolio companies through strategic and sustainable growth.

NRD Capital was built by operators who sought out ways to add value to companies beyond simply providing capital. The firm's focus on innovation and outstanding unit economics, combined with an operator-centric approach, has led to rapid growth. With a primary focus on franchising, restaurants and consumer services businesses, NRD Capital uniquely infuses both capital and operating experience into its investments. NRD invests in small to mid-sized brands (franchise and non-franchise), both domestic and international, which have the potential to deliver exceptional returns.

Helping others improve their quality of life is a defining ethic of both founder Aziz Hashim and the NRD Capital team. Through the NRD Foundation ("NRDF"), NRD Capital supports non-profit and for-profit international organizations that create entrepreneurs, foster financial independence, and power academic research focused on franchise entrepreneurship.


NRD Capital looks to partner with brands that are highly differentiated, with clear customer propositions, solid unit-economics and cultural alignment with all stakeholders.
