CHICAGO, March 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — An upcoming webinar from Restaurant Finance Monitor will provide a deep dive into strategies for driving higher performance and value from restaurant real estate from the perspective of experts in real estate portfolio optimization, investment banking/M&A and real estate law.

Scheduled for 10 a.m. (CDT) on Thursday, March 31, “Creating Enterprise Value Through Real Estate” is offered free of charge to registrants. The hour-long event is sponsored by A&G Real Estate Partners.

John Hamburger, president of the Restaurant Finance Monitor will moderate the panel session with Joe McKeska, senior managing director and leader of the restaurant industry practice at A&G Real Estate Partners; Greg Grambling, managing director at Solomon Partners, specializing in food retail and restaurant investment banking; and Jonathan L. Neville, partner and co-chair of the retail real estate team at Am Law 200 firm Alden Golden Gregory, LLP. 

“Real estate has a major impact on both the operating performance and enterprise value of restaurants, but big-picture numbers on unit counts and even comp store sales fail to capture critical underlying variables such as rents relative to market, occupancy costs as a percentage of sales, new restaurant growth prospects and more,” said the Chicago-based McKeska. “Our panel will provide practical advice on measures multi-unit franchisees and company-operated chains can take to optimize their real estate portfolio and, consequently, bolster the value of their operation and enterprise.”
