Three major national and regional retail brands undertaking South Florida expansions have tapped CREC (Continental Real Estate Companies) to identify and secure new locations.
The firm is representing several Jimmy John’s franchise groups, has an assignment with Hair Cuttery in Miami-Dade and Broward Counties, and is representing national restaurant chain BGR The Burger Joint as it enters the Broward County market.
CREC’s retail leasing team of Senior Vice President Sabrina Meerbott and Senior Leasing Associate Chris Barney are managing the tenant representation assignments.
“CREC has a track record of success working with retailers expanding into the Florida market and broadening their presence here,” said CREC Partner Alan Esquenazi, who leads the firm’s retail tenant representation practice. “That these national retailers are growing their footprints in South Florida signals the continued strengthening of South Florida’s retail market and consumer economy.”
Serving gourmet sandwiches on the go, Jimmy John’s continues to add more locations in the Tri-County region. CREC is working with five franchise groups scouting new locations. The owners are searching for high-visibility locations between 1,000 and 1,800 square feet in close proximity to business parks, universities and hospitals.
As the largest privately-held hair salon chain in the nation, Hair Cuttery is pursuing strategic growth strategies that will augment its existing presence in Miami-Dade and Broward.
CREC is exclusively representing BGR The Burger Joint throughout Broward County, a national fast-casual hamburger chain known for its freshly-prepared burgers. The chain already has locations in Miami-Dade and is now working to gain a foothold in Broward. The company’s ideal spaces range from 1,500 to 2,000 square feet.
“While their concepts are entirely different, Jimmy John’s, Hair Cuttery and BGR The Burger Joint are all pursuing a steady expansion with similar criteria in the Miami-Dade and Broward markets,” said CREC Senior Vice President Sabrina Meerbott. “All three retailers are seeking high-traffic spaces in areas benefiting from large employment bases and stable residential populations. Locations in grocery-anchored shopping centers are an added bonus.”
