SRS’ National Net Lease Group Brokers $2.875 Million Sale of a Starbucks-Occupied Property in Porterville, CA

Newport Beach, Calif. (March 5, 2021)SRS Real Estate Partners’ National Net Lease Group has completed the $2.875 million sale of a freestanding single-tenant property fully occupied by Starbucks Coffee with a drive-thru located at 421Vandalia Avenue in Porterville, CA (Tulare County). The asset is an outparcel to Riverwalk Marketplace, a shopping center anchored by Lowe’s Home Improvement.

SRS National Net Lease Group’s Managing Principals Matthew Mousavi and Patrick Luther represented the seller, a Southern California-based owner and developer. The buyer was a California-based investor who was in a 1031 exchange, represented by Bryan Cifranic of Commercial Retail Associates, Inc. The closing cap rate was 4.35 percent. The per square foot sale price of $960 reflected one of the highest in Tulare County for a single-tenant drive-thru property according to CoStar.

Built in 2008, the property was originally an El Pollo Loco restaurant until it was renovated in 2020 for the Starbucks brand.  The 2,992-square-foot property is situated on .78 acres.

“This newly remodeled property features a 10-year triple-net lease with Starbucks,” said Mousavi. “Single-tenant assets with nationally recognized name brand occupiers and a drive-thru component such as this property are in very high demand as they provide minimal landlord responsibilities and a passive income. As this property was a credit net lease offering in California, we received substantial interest and multiple offers, ultimately selecting an all-cash private investor.”

Luther added, “In today’s environment, we are able to identify which retailers have adapted well to the pandemic restrictions and continue to see a robust investor buyer pool for this food and beverage asset niche.”

Starbucks is located at a signalized intersection of S. Jaye Street and State Highway 190, a main commuter thoroughfare serving Porterville that directly intersects with State Highway 65.
