SRS’ National Net Lease Group Brokers $3.725 Million Ground Lease Sale of a Two-Building Restaurant Property in San Luis Obispo, CA

Transaction sets a record-low cap rate of 4.84% and highest price per square foot of $1,047 over the past 10 years for free-standing fast food-occupied assets in the city

Newport Beach, Calif. (April 27, 2022) – SRS Real Estate Partners’ National Net Lease Group (NNLG) announced today it has completed the record-breaking $3.725 million ground lease (land ownership) sale of a two-tenant, two-building property located at 374 and 390 Santa Rosa Street in San Luis Obispo, CA. Jack in the Box occupies one building (2,584 sf) and Taco de Mexico occupies the other building (973 sf). This sale sets a record-low cap rate of 4.84% and highest price per square foot of $1,047 over the past 10 years for free-standing fast food-occupied assets in the city.

SRS NNLG’s Steven Roberts, Matthew Mousavi and Patrick Luther represented the seller, a California-based private investor. The buyer who was in a 1031 exchange and is a California-based private investor, was represented by Mark Hong of Korus Real Estate.

“This asset was hotly contested as it provided two single-tenant restaurants that are high performing and in a dense location that is a high barrier to entry for new development,” said Roberts. “Ultimately, SRS was able to secure record-breaking pricing for the area and the new ownership stands to benefit from the growth of the area as well as long-term valuation.”

Situated on 0.80 acres of land, the property is just one mile from California Polytechnic State University with more than 21,000 students. It also is near the on/off ramp to U.S. Highway 101 as well as an under-construction student housing complex directly behind the property. It is surrounded by a number of hotels, restaurants and retail, creating a strong consumer base to draw from.

In 2021, SRS’ Investment Properties Group and National Net Lease Group (NNLG) completed more than $3.1 billion in deal volume comprised of 899 transactions in 49 states, and currently has more than $2 billion in property on the market, with nearly 200 properties sold year-to-date in 2022.
