DALLAS — Rick's Cabaret has purchased two parcels in the Dallas-Fort Worth area in an effort to expand its holdings in the Texas cities.

The company paid a total of $5.5 million for the two parcels, paying $2 million in cash and the remaining $3.5 million financed by the seller through a 10-year note at an interest rate of eight percent, according to Eric Langan, president and CEO of Rick's Cabaret.

The first property is at 12325 Calloway Cemetery Rd in Fort Worth and includes the building where the company's Cabaret East adult nightclub is located. The second property is at 2151 Manana Dr. in Dallas and is home to a separately owned gentlemen's club, Jaguar's Gold Club, which will become a rental tenant of Rick's Cabaret.

"This is a great investment for us in a vibrant market that has the end result of lowering our monthly cash outlay, since we no longer will be paying rent for Cabaret East and we will be collecting rent on the property currently occupied by Jaguars," Langan said. "The acquisitions expand our holdings in a great region and will give us a very nice return on investment from Day 1."

Subsidiaries of Rick's Cabaret currently own and operate eight properties in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The company has 23 adult nightclubs nationwide.
