Jun 29, 2017

North Plainfield, N.J. (June 29, 2017) NAI James E. Hanson, a leading New Jersey-based full-service independent commercial real estate firm, announces it has negotiated a 7,337-square-foot lease for Arooga’s Grille House and Sports Bar at 1250 Route 22 East in North Plainfield, N.J. NAI Hanson’s Joan Cenicola represented the tenant, Toson Food & Beverage No. Plainfield LLC dba Arooga’s Grille, in the lease transaction with the landlord, North Plainfield UE LLC.

Located along Route 22, one of the busiest retail corridors in the state, 1250 Route 22 East offers the ideal mix of accessibility and visibility that restaurant operators look for in a new location.  Arooga’s Grille House and Sports Bar operates 16 locations throughout the northeast providing patrons with a unique dining and sports viewing experience. The North Plainfield location will be chain’s first restaurant in New Jersey with a second location opening in East Brunswick later this year. The chain is hoping to open additional restaurants throughout northern and central New Jersey and southern New York in the coming months.

“Immersive and unique dining experiences such as Arooga’s are still in high demand among consumers,” said Cenicola. “An ideal location such as 1250 Route 22 East presents Arooga’s with the demographics and visibility necessary for their successful expansion into New Jersey. We look forward to continuing to work with the chain to secure similar locations throughout the state and negotiate deals that enable them to see continued success.”

As the national representative of Arooga’s Grille House and Sports Bar, NAI CIR works with local NAI Global firms, such as NAI Hanson, in finding and negotiating leases for spaces throughout the country. Arooga’s Grille House and Sports Bar is currently seeking similar opportunities in Westchester and Rockland Counties in New York and Bergen, Hudson, Union, Somerset, Middlesex and Monmouth Counties in New Jersey.
