Former Apple exec's startup in talks to go public via Tom Ricketts' SPAC – Crain's Chicago Business


Representatives for Marquee Raine and Enjoy didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

Enjoy is led by Ron Johnson, a former Apple executive best known for creating its retail arm. It counts L Catterton’s LCH Partners, Riverwood Capital, Stamos Capital, Kleiner Perkins, Highland Capital and Oak Capital Management among its investors. Fareed Khan was named chief financial officer in February.

Marquee Raine, backed by Raine Group, raised about $374 million in a December initial public offering. The SPAC is led by co-chairmen Tom Ricketts, owner of the Chicago Cubs; and Raine co-founder, partner and president Brandon Gardner; as well as co-CEOs Crane Kenney and Brett Varsov.
