Fazoli’s, the national quick-service restaurant chain that has six physical locations across Georgia and 215 systemwide, has opened its newest franchise, but without an actual storefront, according to a press release Thursday. Franchisee Impact Hospitality Group and its Owner Mike Lokhandwala in a first for the Fazoli’s company have opened a ghost kitchen outpost out of PREP Atlanta, at 3781 Presidential Parkway, Ste. #FP301.
Ghost, or virtual kitchens, have been a growing trend in the city even well ahead of the novel coronavirus pandemic. In early-2019 Succulent Hospitality launched three new restaurants, all of which are delivery only.
PREP, an 83,500-square-foot “culinary campus,” houses multi-functional shared kitchen facilities. In the space, stations are located in an open setting, or in private or flex stations. Out of the space, Fazoli’s offers its Italian dishes for delivery, carryout, and catering only.
The new Fazoli’s is also one of only ten locations across the company to offer the restaurant’s newest addition—chicken wings. Atlanta’s new Fazoli’s is open for delivery daily from 10:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.
