Salisbury Business Relocates

SALISBURY — Senior Advisor John McClellan secured a new location for Kitchen Concepts Plus on Snow Hill Road while selling its two former properties within months.

The transition enables Kitchen Concepts Plus to consolidate operations into one, larger facility, and streamline while continuing to offer services to their clients and customers.
The 14,000-square-foot office/warehouse building (former Go Glass) at 805 Snow Hill Road) seemed to be an obvious solution to all parties.  Through a combination of concentrated marketing efforts, networking and a little bit of luck, The McClellan Team was able to successfully sell both of Kitchen Concepts Plus’ former buildings within months of the acquisition of their new location. This quick transition allowed for minimal carrying costs and enough time for a transition to their new location.
“I was pleased to represent Kitchen Concepts Plus in the sale of both of their buildings as well as in the purchase of their new facility. We successfully marketed 1001 Eastern Shore Dr. (a 5,500-square-foot showroom /office/apartment building) as well as 602 Snow Hill Rd. (a 6,000-square-foot production facility). Both properties are now home to new users,” said McClellan.


Renovations Completed

The project was led by Barnes with onsite management provided by Superintendent Don Brady.

With the patient in mind, the additional waiting areas are conveniently located in close proximity to each department.”
