Michigan-based Fowling Warehouse is expanding to Atlanta.
The Fowling™ [foe-ling] alley will offer over 150 craft beers, a “great menu,” and lanes for its “original football bowling pin game,” created by Detroit resident Chris Hutt nearly 15 years ago.
The 25,000-square-foot Fowling Warehouse—situated not too far from Bad Axe Throwing’s original Atlanta outpost—will be complete with a 175-seat beer garden, according to plans recently submitted to the City of Atlanta.
It will be situated in the Blandtown neighborhood, at 1356 English Street NW.
Hutt has since opened two corporate locations and has started franchising the concept, the entrepreneur told What Now Atlanta (WNA) in a telephone interview Tuesday.
Atlanta will be home to the company’s second franchise and fourth location overall.
Jeff Cole, a Sky Zone franchisee, will be the majority franchise owner of the forthcoming Blandtown Fowling Warehouse.
“The growth on the Westside is remarkable,” Cole told WNA in an email Wednesday.
“I counted nine cranes on the horizon last week. We believe the synergy created with all the microbreweries, Top Golf, and places like the Painted Duck are making the Westside a great area for fun social activity”
Cole and his partners have been “on the lookout” for the next recreational, entertainment concept that combines socializing and imbibing.
“We hope to become the gathering place for the local residents not only to Fowl, but to gather and watch a sporting event with friends on multiple screens with over 150 craft beers to chose from, plus enjoy, what I think is a great menu,” Cole said.
“I believe our league nights will be a hit as well because anyone can become a good fowler. A few lucky bounces can win the game over an x-jock like me that has thrown thousands of passes.”
