ATLANTA, Jan. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Less than a year since launching its brand revitalization, fast casual restaurant brand, Atlanta Bread, announces plans for national expansion. With a franchised café opening in April in Cumming, Ga., the popular fast casual concept begins 2017 with a new location and opportunities for further expansion, specifically in the Southeast.
"In 2016, we invested in brand enhancements through a refreshed café design and marketing strategy and direction, re-energizing the brand based on consumer and franchise interest," says Basil Couvaras, COO of Atlanta Bread. "In less than a year, we have seen tremendous benefits to the brand, including a resurgent focus on developing fresh, innovative menu items. We are now actively seeking franchise partners to expand the brand in various markets, specifically the Southeast, where we have a large presence and brand recognition."
Atlanta Bread plans to introduce the new café at the Collection at Forsyth, a high-end shopping center in Cumming, Ga. This location marks the brand's second opening in Cumming, expanding the brand's presence and reach in the market. In addition, the café will include the new store design introduced in 2016, which includes a wine bar. This opening marks the first of additional franchise and company-owned locations planned for 2017.
