Rancho Cucamonga, CA – January 28, 2019 – Progressive Real Estate Partners, the leading Inland Empire retail brokerage firm, announced today the signing of a lease with Culichi Town for a 6,000 square-foot restaurant at 12728 Main Street in Hesperia, California (formerly Hidden Tavern). Construction is underway and the location is projected to open in February. This will be Culichi Town’s 10th California restaurant and first location in the High Desert region of SoCal’s Inland Empire.
Progressive Real Estate Partners Senior Retail Specialist Gretchen Lastra and Investment Sales & Land Specialist Chris Lindholm exclusively marketed the property and represented the lessor, Hesperia-based Lemar Investments in the transaction. The tenant was represented by Jose Chavez with Karpe Commercial Real Estate.
Built in the late 1990s and renovated in 2017, the 6,000 square-foot restaurant is ideally located in one of the busiest retail hubs in the High Desert. It is adjacent to a Holiday Inn Express and directly across from High Desert Gateway, a 370,000 square foot shopping center anchored by Super Target, Ross, Marshalls, Pier 1 Imports and Planet Fitness. The property enjoys excellent visibility on Main St. and features a freeway-visible pylon and monument signage.
Culichi Town, founded by Ramon Guerrero and his family in 2011, is a popular family friendly restaurant that serves “Sinaloa-style” meals combining seafood, fish and sushi creating a unique Mexican-Japanese fusion menu. The inspiration came from Guerroro’s hometown of Culiacan, Sinaloa and the flavorful foods popular in that region. The casual restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and is also known for its high energy atmosphere with themed nights and mariachi style music. In addition to California, Culichi Town has restaurants in Chicago, Houston and Las Vegas with plans for several more and the ultimate goal of becoming the leading Sinaloense restaurant in the US representing the taste and atmosphere of the “Culichis”.
According to Lastra, “In addition to the excellent regional location the building was fully equipped for a restaurant, therefore requiring less time and investment to open, making this a perfect opportunity for Culichi Town to expand its popular dining concept to a new customer base.” She added, “Their menu will give residents of the High Desert a chance to experience a truly unique dining experience that blends Mexican food and seafood including sushi in an authentic Sinaloa way.”
