Shane Pringle and Tim Song (owners of The Earl and Gaja Korean respectively) earlier this week presented plans for Boggs Social and Supply at a West End Neighborhood Association meeting, Eater Atlanta Wednesday first reported.
Boggs Social and Supply would offer a full-service brick-and-mortar bar with a permanent food truck situated on the patio, at 1310 White Street SW, according to the presentation.
Pringle Thursday confirmed the news in an email to What Now Atlanta (WNA).
“We hoped to keep a little lower profile while going through the permitting process but I am happy people seem to be excited about our concept,” Pringle said.
“We have just signed the lease this week so we are in the very early stages of design but hope to have them done in the next couple of weeks.”
Fashioned after the “food truck pod concept” where groups of food trucks gather, Boggs Social and Supply will be anchored by Gaja Korean’s food truck with other trucks on rotation.
The space will offer communal and bar seating for 250.
Maggie McBride Architecture and Bunker Designs have been retained to build and design the project and Public School Creative Agency is behind the branding (forthcoming).
For reference, the concept is similar to local bar Truck and Tap, self-described as a “neighborhood pub with a rotating selection of food trucks and craft beer.”
Truck and Tap has three Georgia locations: Alpharetta, Duluth, and Woodstock.
