Keep Crowds Under Control at Your Property
Depending on the particular synergy of tenants that you are going for, renting space to a restaurant tenant may be a desirable way to fill up space in your building or draw customers to your center. But problems can arise with restaurant tenants that just don’t apply to retail tenants. For example, if the restaurant tenant draws so many customers that long lines form, or crowds gather in the common areas near the restaurant, someone could get hurt if a queue or crowd becomes disorderly or unruly. Then you could face a lawsuit by the injured party.
