Franklin Street arranged a five-year lease in the SODO (Southern Downtown) District of Orlando for the opening of Gelato Fiasco’s first Florida location. The Brunswick, Maine-based gelato parlor chain recently celebrated its grand opening at the SODO Shopping Center, located at 25 W. Crystal Lake Street. Occupying 1,380-square-feet of retail space, the shop is open daily from noon to 11:00 p.m. Franklin Street’s Jordan Wean represented the tenant in the transaction. Collin Rahill of Cite Partners represented the landlord, Kimco, in the transaction.
“The owners chose Orlando for their first out-of-state shop because of the economic tailwinds we have enjoyed and are projected to continue experiencing,” said Wean, Director at Franklin Street’s Orlando office. “They are obviously doing really well on the bulk distribution to grocery, but Franklin Street is excited for the opportunity to help Gelato Fiasco expand their physical retail presence to help capitalize on the brand recognition from its grocery sales success.”
Founded in 2007, Gelato Fiasco is the fastest-growing brand of gelato in U.S. grocery stores. Pints are sold at more than 5,000 grocery stores across the United States, including Publix. The company also operates year-round scoop shops in Brunswick and Portland, Maine. For more information, or like to see what flavors are being offered today, visit www.gelatofiasco.com.
