Two Retail Properties in Chino Sell for Combined $6.17MM

Newport Beach, CA – SRS Real Estate Partners’ National Net Lease Group (NNLG) announced today it has completed the sales of two single-tenant retail properties totaling $6.17 million that are outparcels to Country Fair Shopping Center in Chino, CA. The sales included quick-service-restaurant assets occupied by Wienerschnitzel and Carl’s Jr. and were part of a break-up strategy SRS conducted on behalf of the seller in order to maximize overall value.

SRS NNLG’s Managing Principals Matthew Mousavi and Patrick Luther represented the seller, a Southern California-based private investor. The properties were sourced by SRS’ unrivaled investor database and were sold to separate California-based private investors who paid all-cash.

Country Fair Shopping Center is a 168,000-sf regional center anchored by Albertson’s, PetSmart and Rite Aid. It is located on Central Avenue, a primary commuter thoroughfare with nearby direct on/off ramp access to State Highway 60.

“Breaking up the two assets to sell separately created a larger potential buyer pool, maximizing the ultimate value for each property,” said Mousavi. “We were able to secure two separate all-cash buyers quickly after going to market, one at a 3.75% cap rate on Wienerschnitzel, the other at a 4.00% cap rate on Carl’s Jr, with the latter being a non-1031 exchange buyer. These sales are testimony that buyers are still paying aggressive cap rates for well-located investment properties with strong fundamentals.”

Wienerschnitzel is located at 11901 Central Avenue and sold for $2.44 million. The 1,600-square-foot property was built in 1976 and is situated on .37 acres. The tenant has approximately seven years remaining on its corporate lease. At a 3.75% cap rate, the property sold for the lowest cap rate ever for a Wienerschnitzel property in the Inland Empire as well as a record low cap rate ever for a QRS asset in Chino.

Carl’s Jr. is located at 12005 Central Avenue and sold for $3.726 million. The 3,796-sf property was built in 2016 and is situated on .39 acres. The property sold for a 4% cap rate and has about 12 years remaining on its corporate lease.
