Los Angeles, CA – Matthews Real Estate Investment Services™, the nation’s fastest-growing commercial real estate company, has secured a location for Silverlake Ramen in Santa Clara, CA. The 1,417 square foot space is in the Santa Clara Square Marketplace, a high-profile mixed-use center in Northern California. Michael Pakravan, SVP & National Director of Retail Leasing at Matthews™ along with Leasing Associate Aditya Ramnath represented the tenant.
According to Founder and President of Silverlake Ramen Jitaek Lim, “The retail leasing team at Matthews™ has been an integral part of our growth. Michael and Aditya have a deep understanding of our brand and culture and through in-depth market knowledge and industry relationships have spearheaded our growth in the marketplace.” Silverlake Ramen combines traditional ingredients and flavors with a casual California vibe. The restaurant chain was voted as one of the Top Ramen Spots in LA by Zagat, the top pick for Best Ramen in LA by Califoreigners, and the most popular spot on the Eastside by Timeout. Silverlake Ramen is seeking more locations in Northern California, Southern California, Colorado, North Carolina, and Texas.
The Santa Clara Square Marketplace features retail including Whole Foods, Fleming’s Steakhouse, Puesto, Il Fornaio, Sur La Table, Tender Greens, and other high-end, best-in-class retailers and restaurants. The center also includes an office component with tech tenants like Amazon and residential units consisting of high-end apartments. This will be the second location for Silverlake Ramen in Northern California and the 13th store for the chain around the U.S.
Matthews™ agents were able to leverage their long-term relationship with the property owner to obtain the lease for Silverlake Ramen. “Jitaek and Jai are like family to us. We’ve had the pleasure of helping their concept grow from a 1,200 square foot mom and pop restaurant in Silverlake, to a national culinary phenomenon and a nationally recognized brand,” said SVP & National Director of Retail Leasing Michael Pakravan. “They have a kiosk-style location that has been open at The Veranda in Concord since late 2018 but this will be their first full-size prototype in the Northern California markets, with many more to follow,” said Leasing Associate Aditya Ramnath.
