Retail’s Most Reliable Tenant

A home-cooked meal just isn’t always in the cards. That’s why fast-casual food chains like Chipotle, Chop’t, and Sweetgreen are here to stay, say Miller Walker Retail Real Estate’s Bill Miller and Alex Walker, whom we snapped in their Georgetown office.

As locals work later, Bill says, they’ll carry out and dine in more often, making those stores solid retail tenants both Downtown and in the ‘burbs.\

Bill and Alex are busy repping the likes of Pinkberry and PAUL Bakery.

Busy schedules haven’t kept DCers from becoming savvy foodies though, Alex says, so the proliferation of trendy food trucksand farm-to-table restaurants will also hold steady. Bill and Alex are busy repping the likes of Pinkberry and PAUL Bakery. That Parisian staple has opened at 1000 Connecticut (which we snapped the other day), 2000 Penn, 801 Penn, and Georgetown and is coming soon to Tysons Galleria. And the duo just signed Caffe Aficionado at Paramount Group’s Waterview (1919 N. Lynn) in Rosslyn. Papadopoulos’ John Gogos repped the tenant.
