The Buffalo Wild Wings transaction involved a sale-leaseback on a site in Indianapolis, IN. GRS | Centaur was engaged by the private equity-owned franchisee to seek out financing. GRS | Corteq and GRS Group's Global Service Connection were then brought in to perform the Phase I Environmental Assessment and ALTA Survey--while GRS | Titleprovided title insurance and closing services.

The second transaction, with Tilted Kilt, involved a straight acquisition on a bank-owned property in Woodbridge, IL--a western suburb of Chicago. GRS | Centaur advised on the two tenant site that included the operating Tilted Kilt store and a shuttered sushi restaurant.

GRS | Corteq and the Global Services Connection were again engaged to perform the environmental and property assessment services. The team delivered the Phase I, Property Condition Assessment, and the ALTA Survey. GRS | Title handled the title insurance and closing services on this distressed property as well.

"GRS | Centaur regularly provides services in distressed real estate and franchise portfolios," said Barry Bain, GRS | Centaur director. "With a wealth of experience in analyzing distressed properties, facilitating lease renegotiations, and managing complex situations to resolution, we are able to serve both sides of a transaction, if necessary."

GRS | Centaur director Barry Bain and GRS | Title's national accounts manager, Allen Brown, spearheaded the services package with the assistance of GRS Group associate director Min Kwak at the GRS Group Global Services Connection fulfillment headquarters.

Here is a potentially fascinating and exciting story for the Buffalo Wild Wings Franchisees.

'When Buffalo Wild Wings franchisee Bobby Pancake received a call from the White House on his cell phone, he didn't recognize the number so he let it go into voice mail. 

Upon returning the call, however, he swiftly discovered that he and Steve Wheat, his partner in High 5 LLC, a six-unit franchisee of Buffalo Wild Wings based in Bear, Del., would get to meet with President Barack Obama the next day to discuss the state of restaurants and other small businesses. 

 Pancake, who called the June 11 meeting "an absolutely great experience," said he and Wheat were invited to Washington after being awarded the U.S. Small Business Administration's National Entrepreneurial Success Award in May."

Pretty cool,eh?  To receive a call from the President of the United States.  Wow, that must have punched up the traffic to the Buffalo Wild Wings Franchisee Association website.

But, no.  Here is the Alexa ranking for the Buffalo Wild Wings Franchisee Association website.

The mantra location, location, and location in the social media space is traffic, traffic, and traffic.

How do you think that association members feel about their traffic?
