Patient Capital

Since starting out as the very first Shakey’s Pizza Franchisee in the early 60’s and growing to well over 20+ restaurants, Clausen Enterprises has invested opportunistically in real estate. Our investment philosophy is rigorously centered on aligning interest and the virtues of “Patient Capital”. Today, Clausen Enterprises operates a diversified portfolio of real estate assets throughout California, Idaho, Colorado and North Carolina.

Clausen Enterprises regularly seeks new investment opportunities. We are a Family Office, not a private equity fund, so we invest our own capital and have the ability to own an asset indefinitely. This Patient Capital approach allows us to pursue growth opportunities and make strategic decisions solely in the best interests of the assets in which
we invest.
