The Secret Sauce, the first SlideShare in a series exploring the future of retail from North American Properties (NAP), argues that chef-driven restaurants are increasingly essential to the success of retail and mixed-use projects. North American Properties - Atlanta launched The Future of Retail series at the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) RECon Convention in Las Vegas.

NAP is not just offering up theories. It is betting on the power of chef-driven restaurants. It has secured six of the Southeast’s hottest chefs for Avalon, a $600 million mixed-use development that will open in October in Alpharetta, Ga. Those restaurateurs include Ford Fry, Shaun Doty, Steve Palmer, Brian Lewis, Ciaran Duffy and Giovanni Di Palma. The Secret Sauce shares interesting statistics about the rise of the foodie and the decline of the chain restaurant, as well as insights about how industry leaders are adapting to the trends.

  • But today, the tables are turned.

  • Retail developers and operators must woo the Gordon Ramsays and Mario Batalis of their communities.
  • But these deals aren’t easy.
  • Local chefs often lack the financial backing to build out
 their own restaurants, unlike 
 bigger chains.
  • They are RISKY.
  • 30%of new restaurants fail within the first year
  • 30%close within the
 next two years Of those that
 survive, another
  • WOOTHEM ANYWAY.
  • Chef-driven restaurants provide immediate personality and credibility 
 as a destination for shopping and dining in lieu of other, historical venues in the market. They are a critical element in establishing an identity in the marketplace for consumers. Dick O’Connell NewGate Retail Advisors
  • When North American 
 Properties began developing Avalon in Alpharetta, Georgia, managing partner Mark Toro knew he needed the hottest 
 chef-driven restaurants.
  • It’s time for a paradigm shift 
 in how we think about retail development. Call it Retail 3.0 or experiential retail. Strip centers and malls are out. Mixed-use, vertically integrated communities 
 are in. Gen Y wants an environment that is urban, walkable and connected. 
 Gen Y wants a great experience, and landing local chef-driven restaurants is an important component to creating that experience. Mark Toro North American Properties Managing Partner

  • I have an audience 
 of people in this community who have followed me. Moving to a development like this, where you have a movie theater and 
 a Whole Foods, is exciting to me. It’s like a one-stop 
 in-town experience. Shaun Doty Bantam + Biddy Co-Owner and Executive Chef
  • Then, more chefs joined…
  • I’m a big believer in local talent, local business operators, local chefs who run their own restaurants. 
 I told Mark [Toro] that I would do it but that they had to get the right people out here… and the people they got are just amazing. Ford Fry The El Felix Chef and Owner

  • It’s not only the smart developers that want 
 chef-driven restaurants.
  • The biggest retail tenants are demanding top restaurants in their leases.
  • I had never seen the term “chef-driven restaurants” in a lease until about two years 
 ago. Now I am seeing co-tenancy clauses 
 in upscale mixed-use communities in Ohio, 
 California and Georgia. In some cases, 
 retailers are going as far as naming the 
 top local restaurateurs in the lease. Peter Hartman Partner, Hartman Simons Leading Commercial Real Estate Law Firm
  • The new-class consumer 
 expects great offerings like 
 walkability, five-star service, 
 a sense of community and…
  • DELICIOUS FOOD.
  • CHEERS!
