    ATLANTA, GA, January 09, 2024 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Ackerman Retail, a division of Ackerman & Co., has brokered the sale of an absolute triple net Chick-fil-A ground lease on behalf of seller WB Holdings-Jimmy Carter Boulevard, LLC for a 4,200-square-foot property in Norcross, Ga. A local private buyer, sourced by Ackerman Retail, purchased the ground lease.

Sean Patrick, Senior Vice President of Investment Sales for Ackerman Retail, represented the seller in the transaction.

"Our marketing efforts helped attract a great deal of interest among investors, enabling us to complete this sale quickly and achieve strong pricing at a 3.9 percent cap rate," Sean Patrick said. "The supply of Chick-fil-A deals on the market is up almost triple. The appeal of the Chick-fil-A brand, which is the third-largest quick-service chain in the United States, combined with the market rental rate and strategic location of this restaurant made this a very attractive investment for the buyer."

The restaurant is located at 5455 Jimmy Carter Boulevard along one of the most heavily traveled commercial corridors in Gwinnett County in a bustling retail district containing a wide mix of retail, fast-casual and full-service restaurants.

Delivered in 1998, the Chick-fil-A was renovated to the new prototype in 2018. The property, which is located .3 miles from a full I-85 interchange, benefits from being a part of the Gateway85 Community Improvement District, a 14-square-square-mile area spanning the I-85 corridor that has invested in major infrastructure improvements in the district, including a diverging diamond interchange at Jimmy Carter Boulevard at I-85, lighting and landscaping improvements, sidewalks, pedestrian crossings and more.
