Phoenix Roasters, ABC Chicken & Waffles, and Good Food & Company in the works for 2018.
Good Food & Company, the group that operates Atlanta Breakfast Club on Luckie Street Downtown, will open three new concepts in 2018.
Chef Anthony Sanders, co-owner of Good Food & Company, this week shared the news with What Now Atlanta.
The first concept is Phoenix Roasters, a coffeehouse coming to south Buckhead early 2018. The new coffee shop is taking over a space in the Christ Church Presbyterian building at 1740 Peachtree Street NW.
Sanders noted that the coffee shop would not have an official affiliation with the church, although Phoenix Roasters supports the Phoenix Community of Atlanta, a religious non-profit.
Second will be ABC Chicken & Waffles, opening on Auburn Avenue.
ABC stands for “Atlanta Breakfast Club,” and the restaurant will serve a limited version of the Atlanta Breakfast Club menu with a focus on chicken and waffles.
ABC Chicken & Waffles is also expected to open in the first quarter of 2018.
Dogwood Restaurant Consulting Group is handling permitting for both Phoenix Roasters and ABC Chicken & Waffles.
Opening later next year is Good Food & Company, a “higher-end” breakfast restaurant that will use the same name as the restaurant group.
Sanders, who trained as a fine-dining chef and worked with Fifth Group, Buckhead Life and Barteca (the ownership group for Bartaco), said that Good Food and Company will use more complex cooking techniques and finer ingredients than are typically seen in breakfast-focused restaurants.
Good Food & Company plans to open in the former home of Robert and Sharon Carver on West Marietta Street.
The original intention for the house was to open a new location of Carver’s Country Kitchen, the popular soul-food restaurant that closed its doors a block away.
However, the Carver family ultimately decided not to reopen.
