Atlanta Breakfast Club this weekend is opening its second location. Situated in the Sweet Auburn District, the Black-owned restaurant will host its grand opening with a Facebook Live event on Saturday, September 5, from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., according to a press release Monday. Atlantans can still patronize the restaurant in-person and to-go.
Atlanta Breakfast Club was founded in 2016 with a restaurant downtown offering its chicken and waffles and nitro craft beverages. The new location will carry the name ABC Chicken & Waffles—Nitro Coffee Counter, at 340 Auburn Ave. NE.
“The Civil Rights District and the revitalizing area of Sweet Auburn and the Old Fourth Ward is the ideal spot for our second location,” Osiris Ballard and Chef Anthony Sanders, the restaurant’s co-owners, said in a prepared statement. “We are honored to be a part of this catalytic development with Good Places and Invest Atlanta, helping revitalize an area with such a powerful historical beauty.”
This historical building adjacent to Madam C.J. Walker Museum is located in the Eastside Tax Allocation District (TAD), which was established in 2003 to help the City of Atlanta attract residents, jobs, and retail needed to make downtown a vibrant 24-hour center of activity. Invest Atlanta, the city’s economic development arm, continues to accept applications for eligible projects that provide affordable housing, expand economic development, focus on historic preservation, and/or are supported by non-profit sponsors providing services with public benefits.
As part of the grand opening festivities, ABC Chicken & Waffles will offer one free Nitro Craft Beverage with any Chicken & Waffle order.
