The center also includes a Chipotle Mexican Grill whose lease was negotiated by Winick Realty Group NJ senior vice president and founding partner Daniel Spector. “This space was skirting the smaller side of Jersey Mike’s prototype, but since we knew Chipotle was going in, I recommended to Jersey Mike’s that they find a way to fit into space directly adjacent,” said Krauss, who also negotiated the lease for Pure Barre, a few doors down in the same center. “Their architect did an amazing job. It’s a home-run lineup: Starbucks, Chipotle, and then Jersey Mike’s. Sales have been excellent.” Landlord Urstadt Biddle Properties was represented by CJ Huter of The Goldstein Group.
