After Kool Korners was sold, bought and renovated, the new landlord tried to recruit a sandwich shop in hopes of finding a worthy replacement.
Nearly nine months later, the space has been leased to Moe’s Original Barbeque. It’s no sandwich shop but it is slated to open in January, 2011.
Michael Eric Gamble of G+G Architects purchased Kool Korners when owner, ILdefonso Ramirez, relocated to his hometown in Alabama leaving Atlanta hungry for Cuban style sandwiches.
Jerry’s Barber Shop, shown in the picture above, was all that remained of Kool Korners.
Moe’s Original Barbecue features ‘Bama-style’ pulled pork, ribs, turkey and chicken smoked over hardwood served with two unique sauces plus eight to ten traditional Southern sides and tasty desserts.
Founded in 2001 in Vail, CO by Alabama natives Mike Fernandez, Ben Gilbert and Jeff Kennedy, Moe’s has 16 locations in Denver, Englewood, Bear Creek, Fort Collins, Eagle and Vail, Colorado, Orange Beach, Daphne, Fairhope, Hoover, Vestavia Hills, Lakeview, Tuscaloosa, Huntsville, Birmingham, Alabama and Asheville, North Carolina.
Kool Korners will be home to location number 17 with plans for further expansion in the Atlanta market.
