“We gave it our best,” Doty told What Now Atlanta in an email Friday.
Doty won’t be opening anything in ATL Taco’s place.
“I’m sticking to Midtown,” Doty said referring to the last remaining local location of Bantam + Biddy in Ansley Mall and the soon-to-open outpost in Atlantic Station (sister concept Chick-a-Biddy is switching over.)
“We had trouble identifying with the audience. Lenox was supportive but in light of our Bantam + Biddy expansion continued operations at Lenox couldn’t be justified.”
An outpost of the chicken joint is also on Market Street in Chattanooga and a location is opening in Concourse C of the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport on Wednesday, October 8.
A location on Amelia Island in Florida is in the works.
