Sacramento

Locally owned Armstrong Plumbing has faithfully served Sacramento commercial and residential customers for 50 years. What better way to celebrate its golden anniversary than by acquiring its very own commercial building. The new facility, at 2551 Albatross Way, is only 1/3 mile away (as the crow files) from the company’s former location, just on the other side of Capital City Freeway (off El Camino Ave).

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) has a certain following in Sacramento with approximately ten separate facilities spread throughout the area; yet North Sacramento has been under served… until now. This month, another BJJ operator will open its doors in North Natomas, but with one significant distinction. It will sport the Gracie family name.

Those familiar with BJJ will immediately recognize the value of this franchise, which started in 1914 when “a Japanese Jiu-Jitsu champion Esai Maeda migrated to Brazil, where he was instrumental in establishing a Japanese immigrant community. His efforts were aided by Gastão Gracie, a Brazilian scholar and politician of Scottish descent. As an expression of his gratitude for Gracie’s assistance, Maeda taught the Brazilian’s oldest son Carlos the essential secrets of the ancient martial arts technique. Carlos taught Maeda’s techniques to his four brothers, and in 1925 they opened the first Gracie Jiu-Jitsu academy in Brazil.”

Jackson Sports Academy expands to 200,000 sq.ft. facility @ McClellan Park

Over the past seven years, Dwayne Jackson (Jackson Sports Academy) has leased multiple Sacramento area warehouse facilities in pursuit of growing his girls club volleyball franchise. Just over a year ago, this pursuit lead Jackson to McClellan Park, where Brian Jacks (East West Commercial Real Estate Broker) represented him for the 10-year lease of almost 75,000 square feet, which primarily houses 12 volleyball courts plus doubles for other sports and entertainment venues as well. It was always Jackson’s goal to one day expand to offer basketball and indoor soccer too. McClellan Park’s free-span hangars were the perfect solution with a sea of parking right out front. Now, with the opportunity to host basketball tournaments in connection with Matt William’s Jam On It Basketball Academy, Jackson Sports Academy and East West Commercial have secured an expansion that totals almost 200,000 square feet, making it the largest basketball facility in Northern California.

It’s still a tenant’s market out there… and its been that way for quite some time here in the Sacramento area. Commercial property owners know all to well that savvy tenant’s have the upper hand when it comes to negotiating new or renewal leases. However, not being armed with the right information (and trying to go it alone) can lead to less than stellar results.

The Sacramento Business Journal discussed in a recent article how Rob Fauble, owner of The Beat (a record store in Midtown Sacramento), lost his commercial property lease after 19 years in business at 1700 J Street. Although Rob make the right decision to hire a local Sacramento commercial real estate broker, he was still unsuccessful in cutting a deal with the landlord to let him stay. Occasionally, a commercial property owner has the opportunity to upgrade a tenant with a national company, who can pay more rent and create value for the property… such as the case with The Beat’s former location.

More often that not, however, in this current market, tenant’s hold the necessary leverage to negotiate highly favorable lease terms for commercial property throughout the greater Sacramento area. Click Here to continue reading for a list of do’s and dont’s to learn how tenants can best prepare for this important task.

China’s growing appetite for foreign goods is staggering and California is racing to meet the challenge. Fueled by Governor Brown’s whirlwind trip to six Chinese cities last April, a follow up trip took place in May by the California Asian Pacific Chamber of Commerce (CalAsian Chamber) and officials within the City of Sacramento.

Having the privilege of participating with the CalAsian Chamber delegation, I joined Pat Fong Kushida (President of CalAsian Chamber) and Margaret Wong (President of McWong International), along with elected officials and many other business leaders on our first stop in Shanghai. Here, we visited the brand new California-China Office of Trade and Investment, which is operated by the Bay Area Council. It is the first foreign trade office California has re-opened since all were shut down in 2003.

Living in Sacramento, its easy to take for granted that we actually reside in the State Capitol of California, which represents the 9th largest economy in the entire world.  At times, a healthy reminder is in order to draw attention to this remarkable privilege that we all share.  Important matters are considered and decided every day inside the venerable halls of the State Capitol.  We are certainly fortunate to now have our very own local correspondent, Christopher Arns (Sacramento Business Journal), who has already written over 40 stories covering legislative activities surrounding the State Capitol since January.  

It is incumbent upon citizens to communicate with legislators to ensure their voices are heard.  It is within this context I participated last week in the 4th Annual Legislative Summit at the State Capitol, hosted by the California Asian Chamber of Commerce.  Pat Fong Kushida (President & CEO of the CalAsian Chamber) led four teams who met with over 40 legislative offices to discuss pro-business issues including workforce development, taxation, economic development, and regulatory reform.  It was a terrific day with open dialogue and a distinct willingness to come together.

California State Senator Jim Nielsen (third from left) with CalAsian Chamber lobby team

One such meeting took place with Senator Jim Nielsen (see picture above), where team representatives connected on a personal level, sharing concerns and ideas for improvement in various areas.  This scene repeated itself many times throughout the day as we walked the halls, transitioning from one meeting to the next.  In a fitting culmination of events, the CalAsian Chamber lobby teams capped off the evening with a tasteful reception with dozens of legislators and staffers, along with community and business leaders.

 

The CalAsian Chamber’s mission is to grow and empower the Asian Pacific Islander (API) business community throughout California.  It represents the interests of nearly 600,000 API owned businesses in the State of California. Within the Sacramento region, there exists a significant API concentration in the Little Saigon area along Stockton Blvd, which is a two-mile stretch bounded by Fruitridge Road (on the north) and 65th Street (on the south).  Two business and community leaders, who have invested heavily in this area, include Terre Johnson (Executive Director / Stockton Blvd Partnership) and Mai Nguyen (President / Greater Sacramento Vietnamese American Chamber of Commerce).  Both of these effective leaders are dedicated to improving the economic vitality of the API community within South Sacramento.  Johnson has even hosted local meetings with potential investors from the city of Anhui, China, who have considered potential projects along the Stockton Blvd corridor.  

Andy Wong, Gordon Hinkle, Brian Jacks

On a related note, the CalAsian Chamber is hosting a delegation of 20 business and community leaders, including some legislators for the 2013 China International Trade Mission & Expo next month to the cities of Shanghai, Kunshan, and Beijing. A few of those attending are identified in the picture to the right and include Andy Wong (Board Chair, CalAsian Chamber / Business Banking President, Northern California Division, Wells Fargo Bank), Gordon Hinkle (Director of Public Policy & Communications, CalAsian Chamber), and Brian Jacks (Regional Vice President, East West Commercial Real Estate).  It’s certain to be a terrific opportunity to connect with future business opportunities both home and abroad. However, closer to home, the Little Saigon area of Sacramento is already starting to see some signs of revival, if even only in the form of small bamboo shoots.  For example, an automotive / smog shop (former Jiffy Lube) located at 5736 Stockton Blvd (just south of Fruitridge Road) finally sold last week through short sale after a full year long process.  This API business owner / investor intends to re-open quickly and become a vital part of the local business community.
