“We procured an all-cash Southern California-based buyer within the first two weeks of marketing the property and closed escrow within 30 days,” said Asher. “The buyer immediately recognized the long-term intrinsic value of the location adjacent to Interstate 10 at the Yucaipa Boulevard exit, the main east/west freeway connecting Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties. Visible to more than 138,000 cars per day and benefitting from freeway visible pylon signage, the property is ideally positioned in an outstanding location that will complement the businesses for each tenant well into the future.”

The Yucaipa location is the only In-N-Out location within a 7.5-mile radius and the only Corky’s Kitchen & Bakery within a 16-mile radius. The property also benefits from the average household income of $115,000 within a three-mile radius.

From 2010-2019, the California Finance Department reported that the Inland Empire added 407,476 people to reach 4,632,327. The gain represented 15.2% of California’s population growth of 2,673,359. The Inland Empire now exceeds the populations of 25 U.S. states, according to local economist John Husing, Ph.d. 

According to Hanley,The Inland Empire has the highest employment growth in the country and also the highest home price growth in Southern California.”

San Bernardino County has more than 300 million square feet of existing industrial, manufacturing, and distribution space occupied by prominent companies including Amazon, Big O Tires, Costco, El Super, FedEx, Kohl’s, Mattel, Nordstrom, Pepsi, Petco, Skechers, Target, The Home Depot, UPS and Walmart.

Founded in the mid-2000s, Corky’s is a full-service, homestyle kitchen and bakery with 12 locations throughout Southern California including its newest one in Apple Valley, California, which opened in the 4th quarter of 2019. Corky’s was built in honor of the founders’ Grandma Corky who made everything from scratch using only the freshest ingredients. The chain specializes in comfort foods and baked goods and its menu is filled with classic, recognizable items. The typical Corky’s location stays open 24 hours a day, like a traditional diner setting. The Yucaipa location was voted as a Favorite for the categories of Best American Cuisine, Best Breakfast, Best Bakery/Dessert Shop, and Best Coffee Shop in the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin’s 2017 Readers Choice Awards.
