Valedo Partners, based in Stockholm, and U.S. buyout firm General Atlantic have begun internal preparations and could appoint banks in the first half of 2019, the people said, asking not to be identified because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly. No final decisions have been made, they said.

Joe & the Juice is weighing making its trading debut in the U.S. as it focuses on expanding in that market with outlets spread from New York to San Francisco, the people said.

Representatives for Valedo and General Atlantic declined to comment.
