You can’t keep a good man down. Despite the recent plunge into bankruptcy that left his Cork & Olive wine store franchise chain in turmoil, his newly-launched franchisees stranded without the promised support, and employees without jobs or paychecks, C&O founder Michael Probst is launching his next entrepreneurial venture: Mergers & Acquisition Corp.
Commenter secret posted the link to document P08000107072 (available at www.sunbiz.org) showing that Probst formed a new corporation December 4, 2008. The corporate address of Merger and Acquisition Corp. is a home that sold in 2006 for $399,500 (See listing)… an amount equivalent to 6.6 $60,000 Cork & Olive franchise fees.
