Bielat Santore & Company is an established commercial real estate firm. The company's expertise lies chiefly within the restaurant and hospitality industry, specializing in the sale of restaurants and other food and beverage real estate and businesses. Since 1978, the principals of Bielat Santore & Company, Barry Bielat and Richard Santore, have sold more restaurants and similar type properties in New Jersey than any other real estate company. Furthermore, the firm has secured in excess of $500,000,000 in financing to facilitate these transactions.
Servicing the requests of several national restaurant chains in the 1980's, Bielat Santore & Company established a land development division to locate, contract and entitle for restaurant use, suitable highway sites. The company's principals designed, developed and programmed a sophisticated computer software system to track liquor licenses in New Jersey and match them to each entitled site. As a result of their success assembling sites for national restaurant chains, the company began purchasing significant tracts of land and securing the entitlements and financing to construct large residential developments. To date, Bielat Santore & Company had entitled and financed over $1,500,000,000 in land development projects.
