ATLANTA, Feb. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Poppy's Restaurant was once one of Vidalia's favorite places to go for good food and nightlife. And it may soon have a new life, after the lakeside property is sold at auction on Tuesday, March 1.

"This is a perfect opportunity for someone to step up and buy a superb property that is already well known to everybody in the area. I'd love to see it make a comeback," said John Dixon, president of John Dixon & Associates, which will auction the restaurant Wednesday, March 2.

That auction will also include several other commercial properties, including one with a Subway location on a long-term lease.

The first event will begin at 11 a.m. Tuesday, March 1, at the John Dixon & Associates headquarters at 200 Cobb Parkway North, Suite 120, Marietta. It will include approximately 4.47 acres of commercial land on Scenic Highway in Snellville, golf course lots in Cumming, and a general store and service station in Dahlonega.

The second event, set for 11 a.m. Wednesday, March 2, in McDonough, Georgia, will feature medical office buildings in Columbus, as well as tracts of commercial land Jenkinsburg, Hampton, Perry, Decatur, Ellenwood and Atlanta.
