Beloit, WI (April 14, 2021) – Bill Mears of Coldwell Banker Commercial McGuire Mears & Associates has negotiated the sale of a 0.72-acre lot next to the Holiday Inn Express & Suites, representing the seller in the $376,000 transaction. The 124-room hotel, built in 2019, and its surrounding lots comprise the redevelopment of the former Wickes lumber yard.


The buyer plans to construct a freestanding Popeye’s restaurant with a double drive-thru within the next year. This will be the second Popeye’s in Rock County.


“This lot is in a great location next to the new hotel — it’s right off the exit there and can be seen easily by people driving on the interstate. We were excited to put these lots on the market while the hotel was being constructed, and we think this is going to turn out to be a really great little development,” said Mears, who has the remaining acreage listed for sale.
