We work closely with Ray Lowe and John Park, owners of Fish 101, to secure their second Fish 101 restaurant location in Cardiff by the Sea. Ray and John are dedicated family men, surfers, chefs, commercial fisherman, restaurant owners and philanthropists. They are truly great guys and they give back to the local community in so many ways. I admire how they juggle multiple restaurants, businesses, and their social media while still passionately caring about maintaining a sustainable environment for everyone to enjoy.


Fish 101 is a restaurant group and brand that continues to get stronger every day. Brokers contact me regularly to put locations in front of them to consider for future expansion plans. Fish 101’s restaurant requirement is

focused on staying coastal, preferably keeping their restaurant locations along HWY 101. This is both a challenge and an opportunity for this group. In Cardiff, we located an Italian Cafe that was willing to sell their assets, transfer their ABC Type 41 Beer and Wine license and assign their lease to us. We were successful in navigating all fronts for this group. Future expansion plans are in the making and we hope to see Fish 101 come to a beach community near you soon.

"James Pieri, Jr. assisted us in securing our 2nd Fish 101 restaurant location in Cardiff By The Sea, San Diego, CA. James found us a restaurant space that was for sale that included an ABC Type 41 Beer & Wine license. We appreciate his knowledge of the local market, Asset Sale and ABC License transfer process. We strongly recommend James Pieri, Jr. of Gateway Financial Real Estate as a professional commercial broker and real estate consultant."
