23 Jun Spotlight on North Carolina Net Lease Restaurant Tenants

In addition to its many retail and office properties, Centrex Properties also manages a net lease portfolio of 10 properties in North Carolina and Virginia. Two of our North Carolina tenants, McAlister’s Deli and Firehouse Subs have been part of our portfolio since 2015. In just three short years both restaurants have become wildly successful and favorites for many locals.

McAlister’s Deli is located at 431 Berkeley Blvd., in Goldsboro, between Ash Street and Cashwell Drive at Crossroads Plaza. The area is a busy shopping and dining destination adjacent to the Berkeley Mall and convenient to the main gate into Seymour Johnson AFB. This location makes McAlister’s a great place for shoppers, neighbors, and friends to grab lunch or dinner. McAlister’s, rooted in southern hospitality, is known for their wide variety of menu options, a quaint and friendly environment, but mostly for their delicious sweet tea. It’s not just a drink, it’s a culture. Stop by and try some!

Firehouse Subs is located at 4111 Ed Drive just off Edwards Mill Road, north of Duraleigh Rd. in Raleigh. The highly traveled area is a popular dining destination for visitors of the PNC Arena seeking to grab dinner before a game or show. Firehouse Subs happens to be across the street from the Centrex office and convenient to Rex Hospital, so it’s a favorite lunch spot too. At Firehouse Subs, subs are only part of the story. In 2017, a portion of every purchase goes to the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation, to be used to provide lifesaving equipment to first responders. Stop by the Raleigh location, where you are always greeted by friendly staff and a “Welcome to Firehouse”!
