Real estate firm opens during Art City Days

Territory Land Real Estate, or TLRE, will celebrate the grand opening of its new office this weekend during Springville’s annual Art City Days Celebration. The ribbon cutting will take place at 4 p.m. Friday. Doors will open at 10 a.m. Saturday.

Sharee Killpack, principal real estate broker and owner of TLRE, is a longtime resident and business owner in the Springville/Mapleton area and has established herself in the local real estate sector.

“We are super excited to be right on Main Street in Springville, right in the historic district. We are right in the middle of the action downtown,” Killpack said. “Springville city just has so much charm and such a great feel to it — I’m excited to be able to continue to do business with the great people here and in Mapleton, of course.”

Killpack took over the reins in 2006 from its previous owner, Winona Killpack, Sharee Killpack’s grandmother-in-law.

For many years, Winona Killpack sold real estate in Emery County, where she and her long-time husband resided after moving from Springville.

Evergreen Devco to break ground on development

Evergreen Devco Inc., a retail and multifamily development company, announced it has formally acquired 1.036 acres of land at 855 W. State St. in Pleasant Grove. The redevelopment of a three-tenant retail building will bring a Mo’Bettahs Hawaiian-style restaurant and a Beans & Brews Coffee House.

The future development site, which was sold by Utah County Properties LLC, will be Evergreen’s first project in Utah since the company expanded last year into Salt Lake City.

“We are excited to be able to break ground on our first Utah project since we’ve expanded to this market a year ago,” said Matt Nielson, director of acquisitions for Evergreen. “The Utah team has been working hard to build strategic brokerage and tenant relationships and this well-located property sits in a high-traffic retail zone and complements the surrounding high-quality stores, restaurants and amenities in the area.”

Evergreen plans to break ground on the 5,500-square-foot property in mid-June with an estimated completion date of November.

Del Taco franchisee honored with achievement award

Paul Hitzelberger is the recipient of the Utah Restaurant Association’s 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award, which was awarded to Hitzelberger earlier this month during its annual awards gala. Hitzelberger earned this honor due to his more than 32 years of leadership in the restaurant industry, and his involvement as a board member for the URA, assisting with legislative initiatives for restaurants across the state.

After working in the corporate office of the Southern California-based Del Taco as its executive vice president, Hitzelberger transitioned to the role of franchisee, taking over the company’s locations in Utah and developing many more along the way.

Hitzelberger and his wife, Jane, oversee Utah Del, which owns and operates 32 Del Tacos across Utah and Nevada, and has three additional restaurants in development.

In 2018, Utah Del plans to open another two Del Taco locations in the state, with plans for continued expansion in the coming years.
