Kissimmee, Fla. — Southeast Centers has secured a new lease for Chipotle Mexican Grill’s first Florida location offering drive-thru service at Rolling Oaks Commons, an approximately 155,547-square-foot power center in Kissimmee, near Orlando in Central Florida.
The new drive-thru concept, dubbed ‘Chipotlanes,’ was announced by the Newport Beach, California-based eatery in 2017 and initially rolled out to 10 locations.
The new restaurant at Rolling Oaks Commons is expected to open in November and is part of Chipotle’s plan to establish “a few dozen more Chipotlanes in 2019,” an initiative intended to maximize the potential of Chipotle’s digital platform.
Patrons can place orders via Chipotle’s website or mobile application and pick up their order at locations featuring Chipotlanes.
Rolling Oaks Commons was developed between 2009 and 2017 by Southeast Centers and PGIM. It is shadow-anchored by a 175,890-square-foot SuperTarget. Other notable tenants include Ross Dress For Less, TJ Maxx, Ulta and Five Below. The center is adjacent to the newly developed, 300-acre Margaritaville Resort Orlando and 200,000-square-foot Sunset Walk retail, dining and entertainment venue. The property is also less than 1 mile from Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park.
“Rolling Oaks Commons serves as an ideal test-bed for retail concepts like Chipotlanes,” says Jason Reisman, the Southeast Centers leasing representative who negotiated the 2,438-square-foot outparcel lease with Chipotle. “Its premier location provides exceptional access to millions of local residents and visitors, producing tremendous brand exposure locally and beyond.”
