Lucernex Technologies announced today that Smashburger, one of America’s fastest growing fast casual chains, has selected Lucernex’s cloud-delivered Lx Retail solution to manage its portfolio of approximately 200 owned and franchised restaurant locations in 29 states in 5 countries. This will include the site selection, project management, lease administration (Lx Contracts), facilities management and capital program management modules of Lx Retail.
“We selected Lucernex to help us organize and manage our rapid store growth and to manage our leases”, said Matt Stanton, VP Strategy and Development at Smashburger. “It was important for Smashburger to find a vendor that provided a complete real estate solution in one product and one platform”.
Lx Contracts is the market leading cloud-delivered lease administration and rent accounting solution for retailers. It will assist Smashburger in upcoming changes in the accounting requirements surrounding leases.
“We are very happy to have Smashburger as a client“, said Mike Nuzum, CEO of Lucernex. “Lx Retail was designed for companies like Smashburger that are growing fast to ensure they secure the best sites, get the best lease terms and get their stores open quickly.”
