Voodoo Doughnut to Open First Chicago Location in Fulton Market
Chicago’s impressive food scene is about to welcome two more concepts to the fold. The Feil Organization, a national real estate investment firm, has signed two culinary leases in Fulton Market.
Voodoo Doughnut, a national chain is opening its first Illinois location at 945 West Randolph. The popular Oregon-based doughnut chain is known for a wide variety of flavors with intricate decorations and themes.
Feil also signed a 3,700-square-foot lease with Beity, a concept inspired by Lebanese and French cuisine at 813 West Fulton Market, a mixed-use project with retail and residential spaces. Beity, which means “home” in Arabic, is the debut restaurant concept by Chef Ryan Fakih.
Beity was represented by Quinn Thomas of Goldstreet Partners. Voodoo Doughnuts was represented by Sean Bossy and Ali Hicks of Tether Advisors. The landlord was represented in-house by Nick Dries, and the asking rent was $125 per square foot in both transactions.
