FORT WORTH – Acting on a lender's behalf, Bradford Commercial Real Estate Services has sold a 10,000-sf retail building in east Fort Worth to a franchisee of Camp Bow Wow, a national chain of dog day care, boarding and grooming services.
The foreclosed property is located at 1751 Eastchase Parkway. Vacant at sale time, the single-tenant retail building formerly housed a liquor store. The Los Angeles-based seller, Pacific Premier Bank, was represented by Bradford's Richmond Collinsworth, first vice president, and Leigh Richter, executive vice president.
"We did a lot of work on the front end with the city's planning and zoning department to ensure the use would be permitted," Collinsworth says.
The franchisee is a local couple who jumped into renovating the building immediately after the closing. Camp Bow Wow East, slated to open soon, will be the third franchised location in Greater Fort Worth for the chain, founded in 2000 in Colorado.
The 1.11-acre site boasts 225 feet of frontage on Eastchase Parkway, a popular local artery connecting west Arlington and Interstate 30. Each day, nearly 30,000 vehicles pass the property. The building is adjacent to Wells Fargo Bank and CubeSmart Self Storage facility and on the doorstep of the Target-anchored Eastchase Shopping Center.
"This is a highly visible location with high traffic counts," Collinsworth says.
The buyer of record is J-S Woof Enterprises Inc. Dawn Sumrall of Keller Williams Arlington represented the Camp Bow Wow franchisee.
