New technology company RetailTenant is helping to cure retail today’s biggest dilemma: tenant mix. The an online platform that enables retail landlords and their brokers to find the perfect tenants. Andrew Tavakoli launched the company, leveraging his 30 years of retail experience to curate a successful tenant mix for owners.

“We started the process of putting the company together in 2015,” Tavakoli, RetailTenant CEO and founder, tells “This was largely due to the fact that we own a lot of shopping centers throughout the sunbelt and have a lot of experience in the field. Unfortunately, even though we hire the best regional leasing agents, we have encountered setbacks quite a few times when we found out that the leasing agents are unaware of a lot of prospective businesses that are expanding. There are many prospective businesses expanding locally and nationally. Some are moving to a city, from either the region where they have a few locations, or they are expanding a number of locations from one state to another state.”
