What makes me different from any other commercial real estate broker is that I combine by restaurant background with my team’s use of data. To find the right locations, we use data (census, mapping, analytics software that the U.S government and others use) and then format it in a way that is useful for commercial real estate purposes. More specifically, our platform allows us to pull more datapoints to help us make better decisions on the right locations. So not just being able to pull data that others might not have access to, but knowing how to use the data for your purposes.

We can construct customized heat maps based on your customer-specific demographic criteria and understand both the maximum potential for sites in a given geography.
