United Properties recently signed two restaurants that will be setting up shop at the Penn & American mixed-use redevelopment in Minneapolis. The two restaurants are expected to open in August.

The two fast-casual restaurants -- Moe's Southwest Grill and Which Wich Superior Sandwiches -- are part of the first phase of the redevelopment of Penn & American, a redevelopment that includes two retail buildings developed by United Properties and 234 apartments and townhomes developed by StuartCo.

Moe's Southwest Grill will open a 2,600-square-foot fast-casual restaurant that will be the chain's first in Minnesota. The Atlanta-based chain is known for its made-to-order burritos, salads and quesadillas. It plans to bring five new restaurants to the Minneapolis area within the next three years.

Lonnie Pierce of Meridian Real Estate Group represented Moe's, while landlord United Properties was represented by Jim Larson and Peter Armbrust, both with Cushman & Wakefield/NorthMarq.

Which Wich signed a lease for 1,800 square feet, which will be its fourth location in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. The Dallas-based restaurant chain was represented by Jen Helm while landlord United Properties was represented again by Larson and Armbrust.
