Franchisee Allen Richardson will soon begin the permitting process, the restauranteur Tuesday told What Now Atlanta in a telephone interview.

Richardson, who owns restaurants in Texas—namely in the Dallas and Houston Airports—is targeting a mid-December debut for the all-day breakfast chain, assuming all goes well down at City Hall.

“It’s a brand-new space that needs a lot of work including configuring the layout, adding a kitchen, and concreting the exposed ground,” Richardson said.

“There are literally small trees growing in the space that needs to be dug up.”

At over 4,000 square feet, this will be one of the larger Flying Biscuits, according to Richardson, who said every square inch will be “needed” because of the “way the unit is shaped.”

Richardson’s Flying Biscuit will be situated in the “point” of the building that gives Castleberry Point Lofts its name, where Nelson and Walker Streets intersect.

“I understand the dynamics of opening a restaurant in the right location, and this neighborhood is food-starved,” Richardson said.

“We want to be a good neighbor and we’re doing everything we can to improve the area.”

Richardson said he could open a second Flying Biscuit.

He and his partners are in discussions to bring an outpost in the Atlanta Airport, and are gearing up to submit during the next concessions Request For Proposal (RFP), he said.

“Nobody knows when we’ll see the next RFP, but we’re ready and waiting for it.”

When will Flying Biscuit at Castleberry Hill in Atlanta, GA really open? I am looking forward to it. Saving up my change to eat there.
