It was listed on Aug. 12, 2020, according to public record, and the sale is being handled by Santa Barbara’s Radius Commercial Real Estate, as reported by the Lompoc Record.

The almost 35,000-square-foot building sits on a 3.36-acre lot at 376 Avenue of the Flags.

The restaurant’s second location is up the coastline in Santa Nella — about an hour’s drive from Merced. It does not appear to be for sale, nor does Pea Soup Andersen’s Inn —  a separate lodging property.

Radius Commercial Real Estate told FOX Business it was unable to discuss the listing.

Requests for comment were not immediately returned by Pea Soup Andersen’s.

The famous road stop was founded in 1924 by European immigrants Anton and Juliette Andersen, though it has since changed hands.

The restaurant is currently owned by Milt Guggia Jr., whose father, a restaurateur, purchased both locations in 1999.
