JLL Completes Corporate HQ Lease Expansion for Bar S Foods

Phoenix-based company builds on almost 35 years in Phoenix market

PHOENIX, Jan. 8, 2016 – Tenant representation experts in the Phoenix office of JLL have completed a corporate headquarters expansion lease for Bar S Foods Co., a Phoenix-based corporation that has operated in the Valley since 1981. The lease brings the Bar S headquarters, located on Phoenix’s Camelback Corridor at 5090 N. 40th Street, to 49,174 contiguous square feet.

JLL Managing Director John Pierson and Senior Managing Director Steve Corney represented Bar-S in the lease. CBRE brokers Jerry Roberts, Corey Hawley and Pat Boyle represented the building owner, Lowe Enterprises Investment Management, LLC.

“This lease allows Bar S to control the entire third floor of the 5090 building,” said Pierson. “With demand for well-located Phoenix office space continuing to rise, it was a good time for the company to formalize its expansion and safeguard the space it needs to continue to grow and thrive in its hometown.”

Bar S was founded in Phoenix in 1981, and since then has become a leading manufacturer of processed meats and a top-selling hot dog brand in America. The company operated a midtown headquarters location for two decades before moving to its new location on the Camelback Corridor in 2011.
