Large buyers or Reits who have dozens or hundreds of properties mainly care about cash flows, and more importantly even and forecast-able cash flows. When marketing a property, usually current, 1 year pro forma, and 5 year pro forma numbers are given. Those numbers carry more weight if the tenants are national brands or at least strong regional brands.
However, I wouldn't call T-Flats a chain just yet. They do have 70 locations, but they started in Orlando, each store is unique and tailored to its surroundings, and staffed by friendly and fun young people. They are more comparable to a Loop than a McDonald's.
