Fresh Choice property to be sold

From page B5 | January 14, 2013 |

FAIRFIELD — A Fairfield property that formerly housed Fresh Choice restaurant should in coming months be for sale, with the proceeds going to the city, county, schools and other local government agencies.

That’s because the city’s former Redevelopment Agency owned the 1.25 acres at the corner of Gateway and Travis boulevards, where the 6,808-square-foot restaurant was built in the mid-1990s. Fresh Choice paid $7,350 a month for the ground lease. The agency was to own the building after 2034.

Fresh Choice filed for bankruptcy in 2012. It abandoned the property improvements and personal property in the Fairfield restaurant, a city report said.

But the Fairfield Redevelopment Agency is no longer around to take possession of the property. California dissolved redevelopment agencies in February 2012 to help with its own budget problems. Fairfield formed the Successor Agency to comply with state law and sell former Redevelopment Agency assets, with the money to be divided among local government agencies.

A locksmith will rekey the doors on the former restaurant. The building and land will be sold after the state Department of Finance gives authorization, a city report said.

The Successor Agency’s actions are monitored by an oversight board, which has representatives from local governments and the community. The Oversight Board for the Successor Agency to the Fairfield Redevelopment Agency (one of the longer official names for a government agency) will hear an update on the Fresh Choice situation on Monday. It meets at 4 p.m. at the Fairfield City Council Chamber, 1000 Webster St.

    Fairfield needs another healthy food restaurant. We are talking about something more than adding a few salads to the menu. A good time for an entrepreneur to fill in the missing need.

    Unfortunately the McRiBB rules the day in Fairfield.

    I'm not sure if it is Fresh Choice or the location that was the problem here? It will be interesting to see who goes in next and how long that takes. Maybe Chick-fil-A will open a new place open to married partners in the LGBT community? ;)

    Why would any business want to do business in California? Get out while you still can!

    Any info on the old Hungry Hunter site? Would love to see a Cheesecake Factory come in there!
