JLL Capital Markets closed the sale of the net-leased retail property in Lake County’s Golden Triangle area

October 19, 2020

ORLANDO, October 19, 2020 – JLL Capital Markets announced today that it has closed the $1.64 million sale of a 2,280-square-foot, single-tenant retail building ground leased to KFC Corporation in the suburban Orlando community of Mt. Dora, Florida.

JLL marketed the properties on behalf of the seller, SunCap Opportunity Fund, LLC. A private investor purchased the asset.

Founded in 1952, KFC Corporation is based in Louisville, Kentucky, and is one of the largest fast food chains in the world based on sales and locations. KFC, which is considered the world’s most popular chicken restaurant chain, has operated at this location since the building was constructed in 1988 and recently recommitted to this location with a new 20-year ground lease. Situated on 0.7 acres at 16800 W. New Hwy 441, the building is in Mt. Dora, a community in Lake County’s Golden Triangle area 25 miles northwest of downtown Orlando, and has frontage along US-441, which sees 51,000 vehicles per day. Renovated in 2013, this KFC is the second most visited KFC out of 19 locations within a 30-mile radius.

The JLL Capital Markets team representing the seller was led by Senior Managing Director Brad Peterson, Director Michael Brewster and Analyst Joseph Naas.

“The secret recipe on this sale was a recent long-term renewal, strong sales and excellent real estate in a growing submarket of the Orlando MSA,” Brewster said. “Every investor should have a ‘bucket’ of capital for KFC and similar quick-service restaurants.”
