Albert Lopez completes sale of restaurant to new owner/operator

Rancho Cucamonga, CA – January 5, 2021  – Albert Lopez, Senior Retail Specialist at Progressive Real Estate Partners, represented the seller in the sale of a free-standing operating restaurant to Carnitas al Estilo Michoacan for $1,650,000.  Located at 23040 Alessandro Boulevard in Moreno Valley, California, the recently remodeled fully equipped restaurant features an extra-large kitchen with two walk-in coolers, spacious interior dining area, outdoor patio seating and full bar.

Carnitas al Estilo Michoacan opened their 1st restaurant in Ontario in 2013 making Moreno Valley their 2nd Inland Empire location. The popular restaurant is known for its Michoacan-style carnitas and other flavorful Mexican dishes and is expected to open this spring.  The property is strategically located at the signalized intersection of Frederick St. and Alessandro Blvd. with an average traffic count of 39,000 cars per day.

This is the 2nd Inland Empire full service sit-down restaurant that Albert has sold since the start of the pandemic, both of which were financed with SBA Loans that closed amid the current economic volatility.  Last year he sold a 7,400 square foot former Acapulco Restaurant in Montclair to One Spot Sushi.
