South Coast Kitchen – Restaurant Client in San Juan Capistrano

Southwest Commercial represented South Coast Kitchen in their recent lease at the Marbella Plaza in San Juan Capistrano. Now open ! with a daily breakfast and lunch menu and stay tuned for “bistro nights”.


I would like to take a moment to recognize Mr. Jordan De Meis and Southwest Commercial.  

 Jordan was my agent during a very long and difficult search for a space to open my restaurant in.  He was never impatient and always came back with new listings that fulfilled the requirements that I had.
 Once a space was chosen Jordan handled the negotiations with skill and experience.  His calm demeanor and patience/professionalism were exceptional.  Thanks to Jordan I was able to sign a lease I was comfortable with and am now running my restaurant.  I would gladly recommend Jordan and Southwest Commercial to anyone needing commercial representation.
