Case Studies

Services: Tenant Representation 

The Challenge
The team helped justify the CEO’s vision to shareholders and achieved a market price despite Cheesecake being a captive buyer. The company was able to secure a quality building for future growth needs in a supply constrained market. The Cheesecake Factory is a publicly traded company on the NASDAQ stock exchange under the ticker symbol CAKE. Cheesecake operates over 100 full-service, upscale restaurants in 29 states and the District of Columbia. Success in recent years has brought opportunity and rapid growth, but also challenges in accommodating this expansion.

The Cheesecake Factory is headquartered in Calabasas, CA, where the company owned its corporate office and bakery facilities. To accommodate short-term expansion, the company leased approximately 20,000 SF in the new building next door. In an effort to control Cheesecake space needs for years to come, CEO, David Overton, had a vision to purchase the building next door. While this acquisition seemed to be the correct business decision for the company, the challenge was justifying the purchase to the shareholders of the company.

The Approach
In order to facilitate the transaction, CBRE would have to justify the economics of such a decision to shareholders. The team utilized the CBRE Financial Consulting Group (FCG) to assist in quantifying the impact of this acquisition to shareholder value. In conjunction with FCG, the CBRE team used market intelligence to leverage the seller despite the fact that the seller had pending lease deals in the site. This information along with a detailed market summary was outlined for Cheesecake CEO and CFO and incorporated in a final board presentation.

The Result 
The team helped justify the CEO’s vision to shareholders and achieved a market price despite Cheesecake being a captive buyer. The company was able to secure a quality building for future growth needs in a supply constrained market.

Services: Landlord Representation

The Challenge
Grosvenor Properties purchased 21300 Victory Blvd. in 2001 with two full floors of vacancy. The vacant space was less desirable as it offered restricted views and a location in the lower elevator bank. The space had been available for a long time due to the previous ownership. Compounding these issues was a declining market as a result of the “Dotcom” bust.

The Approach
CBRE was retained to provide direction in maximizing the value of the asset and leasing the remaining vacant space. The team utilized an aggressive in-person canvassing program followed up by cold calls. CBRE also introduced a broker incentive program well ahead of the market and hosted a select broker dinner. To create a more cost-efficient building, the team recommended changes in the building HVAC system. Aesthetically, suggestions were made to improve the landscaping and general identity of the building.

The Result 
Grosvenor leased over 90,000 square feet of space to credit tenants for long-term leases within an eight month period, despite a declining market. The buildings operating expenses were also reduced by 9 percent during that same period.
