National franchise Jersey Mike’s Subs has been rapidly expanding throughout the Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia region with the help of real estate partner KLNB, the area’s largest privately held commercial real estate brokerage firm. In total, KLNB has closed 17 deals for Jersey Mike’s across the DMV over the past 18 months, for a total of nearly 27,000 square feet and a lease volume of $10.46 million. KLNB has a long-standing partnership with Jersey Mike’s and has represented the company’s real estate interests throughout the DMV for eight years.
KLNB principal Ryan Minnehan and retail specialist Michael Ginsburg exclusively represent Jersey Mike’s throughout Maryland and have played a key role in their growth strategy. “We’re proud to have a strong partnership with the Jersey Mike’s team,” says Ginsburg. “They have a savvy real estate team that is looking for topnotch opportunities with maximum exposure, superior accessibility and strong co-tenancy in the heart of major retail corridors and we have been able to deliver on fantastic opportunities for them.”
“When you look at the Baltimore metro market as a whole, Jersey Mike’s is one of the few franchises that is expanding so rapidly,” adds Minnehan. “They have a strong business model – they invest in the communities in which they do business and truly live up to their slogan of being a sub above – and customers notice.”
In Virginia, KLNB retail specialist Billy Kelly has closed seven deals over the past 14 months and in D.C., principal Matt Skalet closed on the franchise’s location at the Shops at Dakota Crossing.
