Property Description

The property is located on U.S. Highway 441 Business, with excellent access and visibility to 24,200 vehicles per day. U.S. Highway 441 is located less than half a mile from the property. U.S. Highway 441 is a connector between several major urban areas, including Gainesville, Athens, and Knoxville, and it experiences a high traffic count of 33,300 vehicles per day. The property’s close proximity to U.S. Highway 441 allows Popeyes to benefit from the heavy commuter and tourist traffic traveling along this major transportation corridor. The property is also located in Cornelia’s primary retail corridor and is close to several large shopping centers and major national retailers. Habersham Hills, located directly across from the property, is anchored by Tractor Supply, Goodwill, and Goody’s. Other major tenants in the nearby area include Walmart Supercenter, Lowe’s, Hibbett Sports, Big Lots, Verizon, O’Reilly Auto Parts, Zaxby’s, Waffle House, AutoZone, Dollar General, and many others.

The property benefits from its central location near several of the region’s economic engines. The property is close to the industrial operations of several companies, which represent some of the largest employers in the area. Fieldale Farm’s chicken processing plant is less than three miles away. Fieldale Farms is the largest employer in Northeast Georgia and in Habersham County, and employs 2,500 people at its Cornelia facility. The property is also near the industrial facilities for Ethicon (600 employees), GlobalTech Industries (200 employees), and TenCate (230 employees). Habersham Medical Center is less than three miles away; the 159-bed hospital has over 700 employees and an annual economic impact of more than $89 million. Piedmont College is just over a mile from the property. The school has over 2,260 students and has recently completed several major developments, including Piedmont Village and a $16 million Student Commons, complete with a dining hall, fitness center, the official Piedmont College bookstore, and a Starbucks cafe. The Demorest campus is primarily a residential campus, with ten dormitories that together house about 600 students. The new Piedmont Village houses an additional 180 students, creating a large customer base for Popeyes.
