NFL superstar Drew Brees has signed with Stretch Zone, becoming its most famous franchisee and taking a seat on its newly created board of directors. He plans to open stretching studios in New Orleans, San Diego and the Midwest, but details will have to wait—the Saints quarterback has some football to play.

Driven Brands Holdings Inc. raised $700 million in its initial public offering yesterday, selling almost 32 million shares, down from a planned 38 million, for $22 each. That's 19 percent higher than its initial range of $17 to $20. The IPO set a couple of records, too, according to BofA Securities, bookrunner on the deal.
