Grits and Eggs Breakfast Kitchen is planned for 699 Spring St. NW in Midtown’s Tech Square, according to a liquor license permit filed in Atlanta. The restaurant would take a ground-level space at the HERE Atlanta student apartments, located at the corner of Spring and 3rd streets. 

“We love Midtown,” Mike Glover, one of the founders of Grits and Eggs, said in a phone interview on Friday. “Midtown is the place to be.” 

He also said that the team is close to signing leases in both Buckhead and the Summerhill neighborhood of downtown Atlanta. In Buckhead, they are eyeing a spot along Sidney Marcus Boulevard. In Summerhill, they are looking to come to Hank Aaron Boulevard, near the former Turner Field. 

Glover, a 42-year veteran of the restaurant industry, added that “franchising is in sight.” He previously was the first Nancy’s Chicago Pizza franchisee in Atlanta, having opened and sold the location on Ponce de Leon Avenue.

Glover said the goal is to open the new locations of Grits & Eggs at the beginning of next year. 

“We’ve been open about 10 months up there in Vinings, and we’ve gotten a great reception,” Glover said about Grits & Eggs. “When you are dealing with Atlanta, Ga., you’ve got the busiest airport in the country. Breakfast is that first meal. If you’ve got good recipes, good staff and locations, you can do very well.”

The restaurant serves a variety of omelettes, Benedicts, and breakfast sandwiches, according to a menu online. Some of its signature items include beignets, shrimp and grits, and chicken and waffles. 

“We are also now dealing with farmers,” Glover said. “We are real big on this. We are trying, as much as we can, to get the majority of our products straight from the farmers.”
