Tobacco Road Planning to Sell and Relocate

Page 2 of 2

"We have a three-year lease," Gleber says. "And the landlord hasn't exactly been like, 'You're gone in one more year' or 'You're not gone.' But most likely, I would think we are out since it's getting hot around here with the cranes and all that stuff."

The plan: A sale by Gleber and his partners to a group of Tobacco Road employees, followed by a relocation a block away to "the triangle building on the edge of the parking lot" at 69 SW Seventh Street.

"Basically, I was approached by manager Joel Rivera and the employees, and they asked, 'What's the possibility of us buying it?' So I talked to some of the other investors to tell them that the employees are trying to put together a program to purchase, move, and run it.

"The investors said, 'Yeah. That's a great idea. Let's see what happens."
