Case Study: Retail National Brand
⬤ 01. Challenges
Driving Value Optimization: Addressing Inaccurate Property Valuations and Providing Comprehensive Services
Upon onboarding a first-year client, we conducted a benchmark study of personal property values in Texas and Georgia, spanning a three-year period. The study revealed that the average value of a retail Quick Service Restaurant’s (QSR) business personal property and the three-year change in store value exceeded the median in both states.
Our analysis identified a significant increase in the average store location’s value, primarily attributed to store renovations. It became evident that the client’s previous agent relied solely on acquisition costs of assets, neglecting to determine the true market value of these assets for their filings.

Additionally, we provided essential services such as monthly accruals nationwide and check-writing services for all locations, including both corporately owned and leased properties.
