Jaws TPK, a growing international Korean street food concept, will be opening at Mall Corners in Duluth during the third quarter of 2023, marking the chain’s first location in the Eastern U.S.
This new outpost will be operated by franchisor Boxete Group, which recently signed a 1,900-square-foot lease at the shopping center. Boxete Group was represented by Daniel Yi, vice president for Ackerman Retail, who is working to secure additional locations in metro Atlanta.
“This is a great location for Jaws TPK that gives the restaurant access to a highly diverse population in Gwinnett County,” said Yi in a statement. “This restaurant concept specializing in popular Korean street food is a huge success in South Korea, and Jaws TPK is looking forward to opening its first restaurant in metro Atlanta.”
TPK Jaws’ menu includes a slate of Korean street food staples such as gimbap, which is similar to sushi but features meat instead of fish, as well as topokki soups and a variety of fried goodies like sweet potato, shrimp, squid, seaweed rolls, and dumplings.
Whereas TPK currently operates around 250 locations throughout South Korea, Duluth’s will not only be a first for the region but also the third US store in total, following openings in Los Angeles and Buena Park, California.
