As the owner (franchisor), franchisee, and developer of Bush’s Chicken Restaurants in the state of Texas, having a team that help us execute our growth strategy is critical. In 2015, SIG became a valued member of the Bush’s chicken development team. At this time BCU was just beginning a major expansion initiative with over 30 new stores being built for both corporate and franchisee builds. Being able to use sale leaseback opportunities helped everyone tap into capital that was held in previous stores and new stores that were being built.
After one failed relationship with another leaseback broker, a new partnership was formed with SIG. SIG has truly impacted Bush’s ability to sell real estate in a timely manner and maximize the balance of lease and cash revenue. From providing front end LOI’s for our banking partners to watching every detail of the transaction, SIG has exceeded all expectations.
SIG provides a team of personable and professional brokers that we feel is part of our team and they are always looking out for our best interest. Their enthusiasm, timeliness, responsiveness and work ethic can’t be beat.
As the franchisor of Bush’s chicken we have placed SIG as our preferred sale lease back vendor on our intranet portal for franchisees. As a franchisee/store operator, I would recommend them to anyone looking to do a sale leaseback transaction. The outcomes of our transactions are the evidence that SIG has a team of A+ individuals that will help you accomplish your goals.
