CHICAGO – May 15, 2018 – CBRE’s Chicago office recently represented Boxcar Betty’s in a 1,725-square-foot lease at 500 West Madison Street in Chicago. Home to one of the busiest commuter stations in the nation, 500 West Madison continues to build on its retail offerings by attracting best-in-class and unique food and retail operators.
 
Boxcar Betty’s is a Charleston, S.C.-based purveyor of gourmet chicken sandwiches. The company uses locally sourced products to craft all-natural, cage-free, antibiotic-free fried or grilled chicken sandwiches.
 
Rated by Southern Living as “the best fried chicken in South Carolina,” this will be Boxcar Betty’s first Chicago-area location and the first location outside of its native South Carolina.
 
CBRE’s Phil Golding represented Boxcar Betty’s and CBRE’s Todd Siegel & Kim Wiskup represented the landlord, KBS Realty Advisors.
 
Recently renovated, The Marketplace at 500 offers a unique roster of boutique eateries and full-service restaurant concepts. Located at the base of the premier, 500 West Madison office building, The Marketplace at 500 is adjacent to Metra’s Ogilvie Transportation Center, which sees over 115,000 commuters pass through it daily.
 
“This is a highly visible, mindful way to introduce a powerful brand to the greater Chicago retail market,” said CBRE’s Golding. “The foot traffic, confluence of other great dining options and the population density will secure a healthy, immediate customer base.”
