October 12, 2016 – Brian Ahrens of Horvath & Tremblay has successfully procured the buyer to complete the sale of Taco Bell in Forest City, North Carolina. Brian worked exclusively with the 1031-exchange buyer to close the sale price of $1,965,217, a 5.75% cap rate.

Located along US Highway 74A Bypass in Forest City, the free standing 2,159-square foot property was built-to-suit for Taco Bell who operates under a new 20-year absolute triple net lease. Attractive rental escalations are scheduled every five years throughout the base term of the lease each at the beginning of each of the (4) five year options. With over 30 years of operating history in the Forest City market and strong historical sales, Taco Bell elected to relocate to this site from its previous location approximately one half mile away.
