Gregory’s Coffee has expanded its footprint in New Jersey with a recent 1,500-square-foot lease in Hazlet, in a deal arranged by R.J. Brunelli & Co. LLC.
The New York-based chain has taken space at 3091 Route 35 North, where it will occupy an endcap drive-thru, according to the brokerage team. Gregory’s expects to open in the first quarter of 2023 and will be part of a new 3,000-square-foot pad building at an existing retail property, which sits at the intersection of Poole Avenue.
R.J. Brunelli President and Principal Danielle Brunelli serves as the chain’s excusive leasing representative in New Jersey, while Jonathan Greenberg of Katz & Associates represented the landlord.
Elsewhere in Monmouth County, Brunelli represented Summit Assets NY LLC in its acquisition of just over two-thirds of an acre at 360 Route 9 North in Manalapan, the former site of a Lukoil. Greg Sobol of Tri State Commercial represented the seller of the site, which is just north of Willow Grove Way.
“The site was delivered to the buyer free of any building structures and with a clean bill of environmental health,” Brunelli said. “Summit is in the process of obtaining approval for its planned development of the site.”
Brunelli also represented both parties in a deal at the Manalapan EpiCentre, where Crumbl Cookies committed to a 1,585-square-foot inline space formerly occupied by Ameritrade. The fast-growing chain is expected to open this summer at the 471,543-square foot center, which is anchored by Wegman’s, Target, Marshall’s and Homesense.
