Lee & Associates Helps Bullfrog Int. Leap into Retail Space

Lee & Associates represented Bullfrog International in a lease for 10,840 square feet at Gurnee Town Center, 7105 W. Grand Avenue, Gurnee, Illinois.

Bullfrog International, a designer and manufacturer of high-end hot tubs, was represented by three Lee & Associates brokers – Rick Scardino, Principal, and Michael Petrik, Associate, of Lee & Associates of Illinois, and Sean Bishop, Principal, of Lee & Associates Arizona. The landlord, Kite Realty, was represented by Branden Reedy and Jimmy Danaher of CBRE.

The Gurnee Town Center property is a power center located in the Gurnee regional trade area. The center is anchored by leading junior box tenants in a high-visibility location.  

“With its recent entry into the Midwest, Bullfrog International is well-positioned in an exceptional regional market,” said Scardino. “We were pleased to assist them with a lease earlier this year in Vernon Hills and look forward to watching their retail presence grow.”
