Hanley Investment Group’s New Dutch Bros Coffee Drive-Thru Sale Completes Break-up Sale Strategy at Highland Village Shopping Center



Hanley Investment Group Real Estate Advisors, a nationally recognized real estate brokerage and advisory firm specializing in retail property sales, announced today that the firm has arranged the sale of a brand-new construction, single-tenant property occupied by Dutch Bros Coffee Drive-Thru at Highland Village Shopping Center, a new Sprouts-anchored shopping center in Fontana, California. The sale price was $2.3 million for the absolute triple-net ground lease. This transaction marks the ninth property Hanley Investment Group has sold at Highland Village, totaling 75,509 square feet and approximately $43.1 million in combined sales.

Hanley Investment Group’s Executive Vice Presidents Kevin Fryman, Bill Asher and Jeff Lefko represented the seller, Adler Realty Investments of Woodland Hills, California, who developed the shopping center in phases starting in 2018-2019. The buyer was a private investor based in Los Angeles, California, represented by Hanley Investment Group’s Executive Vice President Jeremy McChesney.

“Retail developers continue to capitalize on executing a break-up sale strategy due to the gain in overall value compared to selling the center as a whole,” said Fryman. “We were able to achieve approximately 100 basis points better in cap rate by selling nine separate parcels individually versus selling the center all together.”

Fryman adds, “We were able to generate multiple offers on the sale of the Dutch Bros and secure a 1031 exchange buyer and close escrow prior to the store opening for business.”

Built in 2022 on a 0.45-acre parcel, the 871-square-foot Dutch Bros Coffee Drive-Thru is located at 17010 South Highland Avenue in Fontana. The property is situated on an outparcel to a 30,000-square-foot Sprouts Farmers Market at the hard-corner, signalization intersection of Highland Avenue and Sierra Avenue. Co-tenants include Raising Cane’s, Jack in the Box, Quick Quack Car Wash, Mountain View Tire, Jersey Mike’s Subs, Pacific Dental, Crumbl Cookies, Fatburger, Café Rio and Oggi’s.

Highland Village Shopping Center is immediately adjacent to the 210 Freeway (153,000 cars per day) at the Sierra Avenue entrance/exit and enjoys highly visible pylon signage. The 210 Freeway is one of the major east/west freeways connecting California’s San Gabriel Valley to San Bernardino.

Hanley Investment Group’s Fryman, Asher and Lefko previously arranged the sale of two multi-tenant retail pad buildings totaling 13,515 square feet and a 7,500-square-foot multi-tenant retail shop building adjacent to Sprouts. Sales at Highland Village Shopping Center also included a Quick Quack Car Wash ground lease, plus the sales of Sprouts, Mountain View Tire & Auto Service, Raising Cane’s and Jack in the Box, each as separate, single-tenant transactions at Highland Village Shopping Center. Hanley Investment Group’s sale of Quick Quack Car Wash at the shopping center was the first single-tenant Quick Quack to sell as a net-leased investment in California.

“We were able to maximize value for the seller through individual sales to private, non-institutional investors in a price range of approximately $2 million to $11 million, a price range that greatly appeals to the largest buyer pool in the retail investment industry,” said Asher. “Investors recognized that this shopping center and its location and demographics offered long-term security and stability in a continued growth area.”

Asher added that there are 325,000 people within a five-mile radius and an average household income of $89,000 within a one-mile radius of the shopping center.

“We expect investor demand for well-located, single-tenant and multi-tenant retail properties leased to nationally and regionally recognized internet-resistant tenants to remain steady in 2023,” Asher noted.

One of the fastest-growing brands in the food service and restaurant industry in the United States, Dutch Bros (BROS: NYSE) is a publicly traded drive-thru coffee chain with 671 locations across 14 states as of December 31, 2022. In 2022, Dutch Bros delivered another strong year of growth, with revenue increasing almost 50% to $739.0 million, driven by 133 new shop openings systemwide. In 2023, Dutch Bros is targeting 150 new systemwide shops, enabling the company to achieve its five-year goal of 800 systemwide shops by year-end. Additionally, Dutch Bros expects to be within striking distance of $1 billion in revenue in 2023 and 1,000 systemwide shops by the first half of 2025, according to a recent company news release.

This is the third Dutch Bros Coffee property sale Hanley Investment Group has sold within the last 30 days.

Cushman & Wakefield announced the firm has arranged the sale of a core industrial portfolio totaling 540,478 square feet in Southern California’s premier Inland Empire West (IEW) submarket. The portfolio consists of two freestanding Class A buildings located a few miles apart at 3351 E Philadelphia St and 4450 E Lowell St in the city of Ontario.

San Francisco based Stockbridge acquired the two-property portfolio from Principal Asset ManagementSM a global financial and investment management firm. The portfolio sold for $142.25 million.

Jeff Chiate, Jeffrey Cole, Rick Ellison, and Matt Leupold of Cushman & Wakefield’s National Industrial Advisory Group—West represented the seller in the transaction. The firm’s Phil Lombardo, Chuck Belden and Andrew Starnes also provided leasing advisory.

Additionally, a Cushman & Wakefield Equity, Debt & Structured Finance (EDSF) team of Rob Rubano, Brian Share, Joseph Lieske, Max Schafer, and Becca Tse collaborated in sourcing acquisition financing for the transaction.

“Stockbridge has acquired an institutional-quality industrial portfolio with a phenomenal infill location combined with strong tenancy and premium distribution features and functionality. Both properties have maintained a historical occupancy of 100% for nearly a decade speaking to the tenant demand for industrial buildings of this quality and location,” said Jeff Chiate, Executive Vice Chair. “Additionally, with current rents below market rate, the buyer has a compelling mark-to market opportunity along with existing durable cash flow, providing a variety of value-add strategies.”

The properties offer convenient access to Southern California’s robust freeway network and other vital nodes of transit such as Ontario International Airport, the Los Angeles & Long Beach Ports, and LAX International Airport (60 miles). Access to a deep labor pool and robust consumer population also makes the region a superior industrial location.

According to Cushman & Wakefield’s latest industrial market report, the Inland Empire West submarket had a vacancy rate of 5.4% in Q1 2024, representing the tightest submarket in the broader Inland Empire market. Additionally, IEW achieved nearly 1 million square feet of positive net absorption (occupancy growth) in the first quarter of 2024.
