New restaurant planned for Sportsman’s Park in Gonzales

A new, unnamed franchise restaurant will open in the Sportsman’s Park development located next to Cabela’s in Gonzales following the recent sale of a roughly 1.6-acre tract. Acadiana Development of Gonzales purchased the land just before the end of last year for $992,000.

“The new owner has a build to suit contract for a franchise restaurant concept, but does not want to release who they are at this time,” says Justin Langlois of ‎Sperry Van Ness | Graham, Langlois & Legendre, who represented the buyer in the deal. “Before Acadiana purchased the property, we had the property under contract for more than a year with a different franchise, and when that deal fell through Acadiana approached us about this site.”

The seller was Carlisle Resort LLC, represented by Brent Rhodes at Saurage Rotenberg Commercial Real Estate.

The site had been listed for sale for $18.50 per square foot before selling at just over $14.25 per square foot. The new restaurant will benefit not only from the Cabela’s store, but also from the significant amount of hotel space that has been developed surrounding it in the last few years.  There are now seven hotels located within Sportsman’s Park, and another is under construction.
