Snooze, An A.M. Eatery is still planning on opening at least one of two Atlanta-area locations, despite a year-long delay. The all-day breakfast eatery was supposed to open its first local restaurant in Sandy Springs in late-2019, but “was originally put on pause because of construction delays, and then the pandemic hit,” a company spokesperson told What Now Atlanta in an email. “When that happened, the Snooze team had to focus on preserving funds to keep other restaurants open / Snooze team members employed.”
In March, days before businesses were forced to close by local mandate in an effort to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, Snooze had filed permits with the City of Atlanta for a second location — in the Osprey building in West Midtown.
“Now, we are excited to finally be opening this new location and look forward to welcoming the Atlanta community in 2021,” the spokesperson said of the Sandy Springs location. They did not immediately confirm if the West Midtown outpost was still in play.
Brothers and Co-Founders Jon and Adam Schlegel launched Snooze in Denver in 2006 and has since grown the chain to more than six states (with Georgia lined up to be the seventh): Arizona, California, Colorado, Texas, North Carolina, and Missouri. Using many local and organic products, Snooze’s menu offers “classic breakfast dishes with creative twists” like the Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes and Breakfast Pot Pie.
