Focus Property & John Kruk: A Commercial Real Estate Home Run

May 1, 2018

Among the things setting Focus Property Group apart is the personalized attention they provide to all clients. Their communication is on point, and their customer service is characterized by responsiveness. In order to help their clients succeed professionally, the Focus Property team understands the need to get to know them personally. Recently, the team intervened when a client inherited a property after a family member’s passing. One of the tenants in the client’s commercial center closed, and she found the property losing value. The Focus team presented Kruk’s Philly Steaks, a growing brand out of Southwest Florida, as a viable option for the vacant space.

Bringing Kruk’s to the table was a triple play: the property owner sees her space’s value go up; Kruk’s is introduced to the Tampa market; and, Focus helps more businesses thrive. It’s fitting that the Philly cheesesteak franchise is owned by former Phillies player, John Kruk. He opened the first store in Naples, added another in Fort Myers, and both Tampa and Sarasota are up to bat next. The Tampa location, slated to open in the next few months, will serve up classic cheesesteaks at 3841 W. Kennedy Blvd. Extra wiz style cheese for the home run, please.

Focus Property’s president, Brandy McAdams, shared, “We negotiated the termination of the existing non-performing tenant and leased the space to Kruk’s in order to provide the owner with increased value of their asset and a highly visible site for Kruk’s first location in the bay area.” Win. Win. Win. The Focus team thrives on utilizing their extensive knowledge of both the market and clients in order to negotiate deals that support success for all parties. Kruk’s expansion plans extend beyond Tampa, and locations in Florida’s Gulf Coast are on deck.

Focus Property is a power hitter in commercial real estate, and restaurants are no exception. Their clients include Five Guys and World of Beer. The team is equipped to help clients with sales and leasing, landlord and tenant representation, and strategic development, to name but a few of their core services. Sometimes, businesspeople need a relief pitcher. Running the day-to-day operations while also trying to navigate a complex commercial real estate environment can prove too much. The Focus Property team excels at coming into the game and providing relief in ways that bolster clients’ businesses’ value, save time, and boost efficiency. Adding to that, Focus Property’s roster includes architects, engineers, and developers. It’s no wonder that three-time MLB All-Star, John Kruk, chose to partner with the winning Focus Property.

Here’s to continued success for Kruk and Focus. Now, to enjoy The Krukker—don’t hold the cheese.
