CHARLOTTE, NC, December 13, 2017 – Cushman & Wakefield announced that Bakkavor signed a nine-year sublease for 55,000 square feet as the newest tenant at Ridge Creek West Industrial Park in Charlotte. Ridge Creek West is a three-building park located at 10220 Western Ridge Road that totals 810,000 square feet.

Andrew DeLamielleure and Matt Treble of Cushman & Wakefield represented the tenant, Bakkavor. Matt Harper of Childress Klein represented the landlord and the sublandlord in conjunction with Jim Vann of Moody Rambin.

“We are excited for Bakkavor and this location,” said DeLamielleure. “The company intended to wait until 2018 for this facility, but with some creativity and the help of Childress Klein, we were able to secure a location that was able to accommodate the requirement today.”

Bakkavor is expanding its presence in the U.S., and this facility will manufacture specialty breads. Bakkavor products are already available in three Charlotte-area Harris Teeter locations. This is the third location Cushman & Wakefield has helped Bakkavor secure this year, including a test facility in Charlotte and an 80,000-square-foot food prep facility in San Antonio, TX.
