How to Buy a Mcdonald’s NNN Property?

Hi, my name is Alex Casablanca, Managing Broker at Casablanca Triple Net Lease Advisors. We are a boutique brokerage firm based in Orlando, Florida specializing in selling NNN Investment Properties Nationwide USA. Today I’m going to talk to you about How to Buy a McDonald’s NNN Property.

Investing in a McDonalds NNN property offer singular benefits to investors that are looking to invest their hard-earned money in one of the most recognized companies in the world.  Most McDonald’s leases feature an original lease term of 20 Year Absolute NNN Lease with No Landlord Responsibilities. Most leases are Corporate Guaranteed by Mcdonald’s Corporation. 

Mcdonald’s is the world’s largest chain of hamburger fast food restaurants, serving around 70 million customers daily in 119 countries across the world with over 35,000 locations. 

Now the question is, How to Buy a Mcdonald’s NNN Property? The 5 steps to buy a McDonalds NNN Property are:

  1. Define your price range – Before venturing into looking for a McDonald’s you should define first your price target. The average price of a McDonald’s NNN property is between $2M – $3.5M. The better the area, the higher the price will be. Most Mcdonald’s transactions are all cash since financing in most cases is unsustainable because Mcdonald’s cap rates are lower than the mortgage rates.

  2. Define your risk appetite and cap rate expectations. Mcdonald’s is a very low risk investment, therefore cap rates are going to be lower than other type of Tenants. The average cap rate for a Mcdonald’s is between 4%-5%, so it is important to determine if your cap rate expectations are in line with a Mcdonald’s investment. If you are a conservative investor a Mcdonald’s NNN Property could be ideal for you, but if you are an aggressive investor that is looking for higher cap rates then Mcdonald’s wouldn’t be a good investment for you.

  3. Define the target location or locations that you are interested in. Most investors prefer tax free states such as FL and TX because their rental income will not be subject to state taxes. It is also important to have in mind that the inventory for Mcdonald’s NNN properties is always limited, so is important to expand the target locations as much as possible.

  4. Define the minimum years remaining on the lease you are willing to consider. A new Mcdonald’s will come with a 20 years absolute NNN lease, while an existing Mcdonald’s property could have 10 years remaining on the lease. 

  5. Lastly and not least important, hire an experienced and knowledgeable NNN Buyer’s Broker that can help you navigate the complexities of the market and find the right McDonalds for you.
