HOUSTON, Aug. 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Carriage Services, Inc. (NYSE: CSV) (“Carriage” or “Carriage Services”) is pleased to announce that it has acquired substantially all the assets of Funeraria San Juan (“San Juan”), a business consisting of two stand-alone funeral homes located in Kissimmee, Florida, 20 minutes south of Orlando.
“When I decided to look for a succession plan, I ended up with several offers and ultimately selected Carriage because of their history, reputation, and because I believe they will take great care of our people. This process has been an extremely smooth one and I am excited to see how San Juan continues to grow with Carriage’s support and leadership,” stated Fred Richardt former owner of San Juan for the past 22 years and prior owner of Florida Mortuary Services for 30 years.
“We are excited to welcome the San Juan team to the Carriage Family and we look forward to supporting the tremendous work they have done in growing their business to serve more than 800 families last year. The addition of San Juan aligns well with our focus on partnering with the best remaining independent funeral and cemetery businesses located in high growth markets with significant upside potential. We are honored that Fred has selected Carriage to continue to build upon the strong foundation that he, Bob Healey, and their team have built,” said Mel Payne, Chief Executive Officer of Carriage Services.
