The Red Lobster property in Amherst has sold for $5.83 million, according to documents filed this week with the Erie County Clerk's Office.
Golden Gate Capital, the private equity investment firm that owns the national seafood chain, sold the property at 4010 Maple Road, near North Bailey Avenue, in a transaction that closed Tuesday.
Little is known about the buyer, RL 4010 LLC. A search of state business records traces that limited liability company to a Louis Wintermeyer, in Nyack, who could not be reached for comment.
Golden Gate acquired the 1.8-acre property in November 2015, one year after completing its purchase of the Red Lobster chain. Marcus & Millichap handled the listing. The property sale "doesn't impact our restaurant operations," Meagan Mills, a Red Lobster spokeswoman, told The Buffalo News.
