From chef-driven restaurant experiences to best-in-class QSR concepts, from luxury cinema to innovative entertainment experiences, landlords are seeking new opportunities to attract and engage today’s shoppers. With more than 20 years of experience working with entertainment leaders like TopGolf, Harkins Theatres, Puttshack, Pinstripes, and Dave & Busters, entertainment leasing is a founding specialty of Western Retail Advisors. During our 20-year relationship with Harkins Theatres, we completed over twenty-two new locations ranging from site acquisitions, to build-to-suit leases and ground leases, to complicated urban projects—more total theatre completions than any other broker.
“When looking at new markets, Torchy’s relies on partners who understand our needs, have great relationships with landlords and developers, and know the market fully. We have found that with Charles, Chris and the team at Western Retail Advisors. Thanks to Western, we will have four units open in one year, which is the strongest roll out we have had to date in a new market.”
“Western Retail understood Portillo’s unique needs and was able to leverage their tremendous knowledge of the market to source a site within just weeks after beginning to work with us.”
“As we continue our expansion in new markets, we look for partners who are local market experts, have excellent relationships with landlords and developers, and have the resources to help us make the best decisions possible when outlining our market plan. Charles Skaggs and Western Retail Advisors have met all these criteria and been an invaluable part of the team that supports the growth of our brand.”
“The keys to a successful real estate strategy are having deep market knowledge, an understanding of all current and proposed projects, and strong relationships. This is what Western Retail Advisors has provided for us.”
