Phase I ESA & PCA
Steak 'n Shake
Steak ‘n Shake is a casual dining restaurant with over 600 locations throughout the United States. In 2018, Steak ‘n Shake announced a change in its business model to a franchise partner system. This allowed franchisees to have more autonomy in how their single restaurant operated.
CBC was contracted by a client to perform a Pre-Lease Assessment and a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) on the site. The Pre-Lease Assessment was ordered because the client was interested in purchasing the restaurant property and engaging in a Leaseback Agreement with the franchisee.
