Meet CapStar Realty Agent Greg Cho

Q: Hi Greg, please tell us about yourself and what got you interested in the food and beverage real estate industry?

Before my real estate career, I invested, operated, and owned restaurants. I owned and operated Washington DC's 1st All You Can Eat Sushi destination and multiple entertainment venues in the early 2000s. The passion for food is in my family's DNA. We, as a family, successfully launched ARIA, a Korean street food joint in San Francisco. The pandemic provided new opportunities to me, as I am in the process of initiating a new service as a franchise broker. I am committed to ongoing innovations and keeping up with the trends in the industry. I aim to keep my services valuable to my current and future clients.

Q: What kind of real estate clients do you work with?

Since 2009, I have worked with the food and beverage clients and international grocery clients in the DMV area, identifying and negotiating leases for their new locations. My client base has grown geographically. Some of my clients include Iron Age Korean BBQ with 11 locations nationwide, Crafty Crab with over 50 sites nationwide, and 99 Ranch with over 60 locations nationwide. I represent clients in the East Coast, South, and Midwest markets.

Recent Business

It is a bittersweet moment as Thai Pilin's owner has chosen to retire after operating the restaurant for over 15 years. Greg will be assisting Grill Kabob in opening their second location at 8385 Leesburg Pike in Virginia, which will help Grill Kabob serve increasing populations. They previously opened their first location inside the food court of Tysons I Mall.

More information on the soft opening of Grill Kabob's Reston location will follow in June or July. We have an image of the renovation plans to get an idea of how the restaurant will look. Contact Greg Cho at gcho@capstor.com for more information.
