Pizza Hut Opens New 2,840 SF Restaurant within CRC’s Shops on Montevallo

Shops on Montevallo Pizza Hut Coming Soon

Pizza Hut has signed a lease with Continental Realty Corporation (CRC) for 2,840 square feet of space within The Shops on Montevallo and recently relocated from their former location at 5388 Oporto Madrid Blvd to open a new restaurant within the 65,000 square foot retail center on 4500 Montevallo Road in Birmingham. CRC, a Baltimore-based real estate investment and management company, acquired the center in summer 2016. Cherene Keenan, Leasing Associate for Continental Realty Corporation and David Ashford and Alex Benson of Southpace Properties represented the Landlord and Allen Garstecki of JLL represented the Tenant.

The Shops on Montevallo services one of Birmingham’s wealthiest neighborhoods, Mountain Brook, and also draws consumer traffic from the adjacent Crestwood and Crestline neighborhoods. More than 50,000 households are contained within a three-mile radius with average household incomes approaching $90,000. The center is anchored by Planet Fitness, with additional tenants comprised of Bedzzz Express, Cumberland Dental and Subway.

With more than 16,000 restaurants operating in more than 100 countries, Pizza Hut is among the most recognizable pizza restaurants internationally with menu selections also including pasta dishes, chicken wings and side orders such as stuffed garlic knots and cheese sticks. According to Pizza Hut, 94% of all people residing in the United States eat pizza at least once per month, and the average American consumes 46 pizza slices annually.

“Since acquiring this center nearly two years ago, our team has focused on improving the operational efficiencies of the center, while also elevating the tenant mix to better serve the needs of the local community,” explained David Donato, Senior Vice President of Continental Realty’s Commercial Division. “Pizza Hut has a strong corporate brand, and its presence adds another destination restaurant to The Shops on Montevallo.”
