With a price of $2.895 million, HIG’s recent sale of a Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf – the oldest and largest privately-held American coffee chain – represents a 3.8 percent cap rate and $1,667 per square foot.

Hanley Investment Group Executive Vice President Bill Asher and Vice President Jeff Lefko represented the seller, Fountainhead Development based in Newport Beach, California. Ash Joshi of Capital Realty Solutions Inc. in San Fernando, California, represented the buyer, a private investor based in Chatsworth, California.

The new construction, freestanding, 1,710-square-foot The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, which opened on July 23rd, has a drive-thru and is located on a 0.48-acre pad at the hard corner, signalized intersection at Riverside Avenue and Easton Street/Highland Avenue, where traffic counts are in excess of 62,000 cars per day. The property is immediately adjacent to the Interstate 210 freeway at the Riverside Avenue entrance/exit. The 210 Interstate freeway is one of the major east/west freeways connecting California’s San Gabriel Valley and Inland Empire.

“The initial 15-year lease term was a very compelling attribute to the investment in obtaining sub-four percent cap pricing and generating multiple additional offers within striking distance,” said Asher.

“The asset featured the outstanding real estate fundamentals passive investors look for in today’s market – hard corner, signalized location, morning drive side to work for coffee drinkers, immediate access to a major freeway, and rare prominent city freeway signage,” notes Asher.

“The property benefits from high-identity freeway signage rights owned in perpetuity; one of only three retail tenants featured on the City of Rialto’s 95-foot pylon located along the 210 Interstate freeway, which is highly visible by daily eastbound and westbound traffic,” said Lefko. “Average daily traffic count along the 210 freeway is approximately 112,000 cars per day. The property is also situated near Interstate 215. At the Ramona Expressway exit on Interstate 215 average daily traffic count is 145,000 cars per day.”

“Sharing a signalized intersection with In-N-Out Burger (directly across the street) doesn’t hurt either,” added Asher. “Coffee Bean will certainly benefit tremendously long-term from the regional traffic In-N-Out Burger draws and speaks to the overall strength of the quality of the location.”

Other nearby national credit tenants that drive sales traffic to the immediate area include Arco/AMPM, Chipotle, Jack in the Box, Jersey Mike’s Subs, Wingstop, 7-Eleven, Carl’s Jr., Del Taco, Rite Aid, Walgreens and Verizon.

With over 1,000 locations around the world, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is known for providing the finest ingredients and flavors from around the world and feature a variety of fresh roasted coffee and specialty teas, along with baked goods and blended ice drinks.

The City of Rialto is the sixth largest city in San Bernardino County and the 11th largest in the Inland Empire with over 369,000 people within a five-mile radius of the property. There are one million people within 10 miles.
