Owner says outpost was too close to other locations.
Flip Burger‘s location at 666 North Highland Avenue in the Poncey-Highand neighborhood has shuttered, according to Eater.
With locations in Buckhead and West Midtown as well, ownership revealed that the Poncey-Highland location was too close to the other outposts. The gourmet burger chain has Birmingham and Nashville outposts as well.
Here is the statement given to Eater regarding the closing:
“After careful consideration we have made the decision to close the Flip Burger Poncey-Highland location due to its close proximity to our successful Howell Mill and Buckhead locations. We thank our loyal fans from the neighborhood and appreciate the support they have shown us over the years. We also thank our wonderful team in the restaurant who gave excellent service to all of our guests. We are working on transferring as many of those employees to our Howell Mill and Buckhead locations and encourage our loyal fans to visit us at those locations. Flip looks forward to introducing guests to new menu items, exciting events, and more in 2016.
