Sandor Development Company, one of the largest privately-held shopping center owners in the country, and Collection Sites LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of QuestCap Inc., have entered into an agreement to set up pop-up testing sites in the parking lots of dozens of shopping centers owned or managed by Sandor. The lease agreement is for an initial six-month term with an option to extend the lease.
The network of COVID-19 testing sites will be located across 65 Sandor locations in 25 states, beginning with Texas and Arizona in November 2020. The pop-up labs will have a daily testing capacity of 150 tests per site and will be managed by Collection Sites LLC and powered by Alcala Testing and Analysis Services, a CLIA-licensed laboratory based in San Diego, California. Appointments and payments will be handled through an online portal at www.testbeforeyougo.com.
“[With Sandor] as one of the largest private property developers in the United States, this agreement will ensure Collection Sites are widely accessible by all Americans,” said Doug Sommerville, CEO of QuestCap, Inc. “As people go about their regular shopping routines at stores like Walmart and Target, they will be able to conveniently and quickly access COVID-19 testing. This is the key to flattening the curve and will help maximize the testing that is completed.”
“We are excited to support the health and safety of all Americans by bringing them a convenient COVID-19 testing solution” said David N. Eskenazi, President of Sandor Development. “With the substantial traffic and regular visits to our properties, Americans will be able to make COVID-19 testing part of their regular routine and help flatten the curve and restore regular business and life for the United States.”
The agreement was brokered by Ryan Zickler of Zickler Associates, representing Collection Sites, and Andrew Hasbrook of Sandor, representing the landlord.
