Burgess Rawson has recently released its Industry Insights report for the convenience retail sector; which primarily consists of fuel retailers and their ancillary convenience offerings. Burgess Rawson remains very supportive of this asset class.
Burgess Rawson | Industry Insights Report
Convenience retail has become a highly sought-after asset for institutional and individual investors alike due to the appeal of prime locations and Multi-national long term lease covenants.
Investors are still actively seeking quality commercial assets in convenience retail, which provide stability and guaranteed returns through longer leases and the ability to command a premium, reflecting the current trend of investors pursuing security after the pandemic. Cap Rates (or valuation) of this asset class appears to have been less impacted by rising interest rates than other property asset classes.
The co-location of convenience retail and fast-food operators generates mutual growth for both operators. Fast food is a robust, recession-proof product that has continued to show growth during economic uncertainty. As fast-food operators seek desirable, densely populated catchments, they coincide with the prerequisites of convenience retail operators.
The low uptake of EV vehicles coupled with the ongoing sale of traditional fuel-based vehicles suggests the demand for fuel distributors will be with us for many years to come. Multi-nationals continue to roll out new sites with a 10 to 15 year commitment.
WHATS NEXT FOR CONVENIENCE RETAIL?
Investing in fuel and convenience retail sites can offer investors exceptional tenants, great locations, and strong returns compared to other industries, with the potential for redevelopment options in prime regional and metro areas upon lease
