MIAMI BEACH, FLORIDA – March 8, 2011 – Terranova is pleased to announce that health-conscious fast food chain Energy Kitchen has selected Suniland Shopping Center as its first location in South Florida. The approximately 2,500 square foot long term deal was brokered by Terranova Executive Vice President Mindy McIlroy.
Energy Kitchen, a health-conscious quick service restaurant that currently operates 10 restaurants in the New York City area, serves nothing over 500 calories and believes that fast food can indeed be good for you. Its menu includes non-traditional fare such as bison and ostrich burgers in addition to the typical healthy wraps and protein shakes, and everything is baked, steamed and grilled. Today, Energy Kitchen runs four corporate stores and six franchisee-owned locations with approximately 55 stores in development in Florida, Washington D.C., Boston, White Plains, Long Island and Maryland.
Suniland Shopping Center is located at 11325 South Dixie Highway, Pinecrest and is one of the most successful centers in the Miami-Dade submarket of Pinecrest. The center’s design allows excellent visibility from U.S. 1, and its location between two successful regional malls, Dadeland Mall to the north and The Falls to the south, gives the center exposure to some of Miami-Dade’s busiest business and shopping traffic making the center a prime location for growing retailers.
“The selection of Suniland Shopping Center by new franchise concept Energy Kitchen as its first South Florida location speaks to the benefits of being located in a well merchandized, well located center,” said McIlroy. “The Pinecrest community will be pleased with the addition. Health-conscious options are in high demand right now and Suniland Shopping Center is offering Pinecrest the first taste of a new option. Energy Kitchen’s sales will reflect the success of the center and of the rebounding market.”
