In addition to our normal news coverage, What Now Atlanta is tracking ways Atlanta’s businesses are adapting to the novel coronavirus and the challenges it brings to brick-and-mortars.
Hector Santiago as part of Ponce City Market’s (PCM) reopening over the weekend has brought his El Super Pan market stall back online.
The Latino sandwich eatery in early-2020 temporarily closed for renovations, reopened, and then was forced to close by state-mandate to slow the spread of COVID-19.
With its reopening, El Super Pan has brought with it sister concept El Burro Pollo which will run out of the PCM space as a pop-up until its Midtown location reopens in CODA’s The Collective, Santigo told What Now Atlanta in an email.
El Burro Pollo was only open weeks if not days before having to temporarily shutter earlier this year by order of Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp.
The CODA El Burro Pollo will likely reopen “once Midtown returns to a higher level of occupancy in the office buildings and Georgia Tech comes back into session with students on campus.”
“PCM and Jamestown have been amazing and supportive partners during these uncertain moments,” Santiago said.
“As they gear up to reopen to the general public they are taking every precaution to ensure the safety and cleanliness of the property.”
El Super Pan’s hours of operation, for the time being, will be Tuesday through Sunday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. (with the exception of being open on Memorial Day, Monday May 25, and closed Tuesday, May 26.)
“We want to encourage all our diners and market guests to wear masks for their safety and the safety of others.”
