Snap Back by Hook & Reel — a fast-casual version of the popular seafood concept Hook & Reel Cajun Seafood and Bar — leased approximately 2,000 square feet at Twin City Shopping Center in Jersey City, according to an announcement from Levin Management Corp.
North Plainfield-based LMC serves as the exclusive leasing and managing agent for the 95,000-square-foot, grocery-anchored property located at the intersection of Garfield Avenue/Broadway and 53rd Street. LMC Senior Leasing Representative E.J. Moawad arranged the lease.
Snap Back by Hook & Reel is a new, smaller-scale iteration of the full-service Hook & Reel restaurant. With its seafood boil-based menu that allows guests to customize their meal as well as offering up po’ boys and wings, these locations are focused on providing patrons with a convenient, quick-service dining experience, along with takeout and delivery.
“Snap Back by Hook & Reel is a great fit for this property,” Moawad said. “We have worked hard to enhance and diversify the tenant mix and dining options here, and this concept will serve as another anchor for the center’s restaurant component and bring something new and exciting both to our shoppers and the entire community.”
Twin City Shopping Center’s dining options also include Taco Bell, Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen and a recently renovated Wendy’s. Additionally, Dunkin’ — a tenant since 1998 — this year completed a full remodel that transformed it into one of the brand’s “next generation” restaurants featuring a fresh new design and innovative features.
Twin City Shopping Center’s tenant roster also includes Aqui Market, Retro Fitness, Everything $.99, T-Mobile, 1HOURREPAIR.com, Apple Nail Salon, Twin City Liquors and a laundromat (recently leased to a new operator).
The property’s ideal location on the Jersey City/Bayonne border further adds to its appeal. Notably, the center sits just off Exit 14A of the New Jersey Turnpike and is easily reached by a network of local thoroughfares. The center serves a growing residential population of more than 39,000 people within a one-mile radius, and approximately 35,000 vehicles pass the property each day.
