Three of these properties included in the purchase and sale agreement are located in the desirable family oriented suburbs of Atlanta near I-85 and I-985. This area outside of Atlanta is home to million dollar homes, Stone Mountain and the resort areas of Lake Lanier. The fourth property is located outside of Saint Simons Island off of I-95.
Jason Castenir, CEO of First Colombia Gold stated, “These convenience stores are just another step in the long-term strategy we have for First Colombia Gold. By incorporating fuel supply into the lease agreement, we are able to monumentally increase our revenue through this acquisition.”
The property located in Brunswick, Georgia includes a gas station and convenience store with a small shopping complex. Current tenants include two chain restaurant franchises and a locally owned restaurant.
The property located in Buford, Georgia includes a gas station and convenience store, along with a locally owned dry cleaner and two currently vacant spots that include a Quick-Serve Restaurant (QSR) and an office space. The company plans to find a tenant for both locations, but is considering the QSR space as an additional location for its recently acquired Maryland Fried Chicken franchise, owned by its subsidiary, Triangle Restaurant Group.
Additionally, a multi-car, freestanding, self-serve car wash is also being acquired in Stone Mountain, Georgia.
“Over the last thirty days the company has made major strides towards our broader strategy and the long term goals for the company. We are moving forward with our PSA on the Eleven C-Stores in Alabama, we completed the acquisition of the Fuel Terminal in North Carolina, and now having the ability to utilize that fuel capacity to serve these to be acquired locations is a major step for our company,” added Mr. Castenir, “We look forward to closing out 2015 on a positive note for our shareholders, and opening 2016 with success towards our vision of the future for our company.”
