Peachtree Center in a press release Monday announced the expansion and modernization of its Chick-fil-A, as well as the addition of Freshii.
The announcement comes on the heels of the development’s recently completed renovation of The Hub and Plaza, Peachtree Center’s three-story retail and outdoor spaces.
Located within The Hub, the new Chick-fil-A will expand to a 3,000-square-foot restaurant and will include an updated exterior and its own designated seating area.
Chick-fil-A’s expansion is part of a larger transformation underway at Peachtree Center focused on enhancing its visitor experience and updating its main spaces.
“Peachtree Center is the core of the downtown community, offering a central place for Atlantans to meet and gather,” Amy Fingerhut, first vice president at CBRE, who leads retail leasing at Peachtree Center, said in the release.
“Chick-fil-A has been a beloved tenant of Peachtree Center for the last 18 years and its expansion signals an investment in creating a welcoming, familiar home in the center of the city.”
Chick-fil-A will be moving to a new location along the main thoroughfare near The Hub’s glass staircase, a focal point for the revitalized retail center.
It will occupy suites B-09, B-10, and B-11 as shown in the site plan below, outlined in red (with the dotted area showing the dedicated patio space.)
The new restaurant, which will be double the size of its current space, will allow Chick-fil-A to expand its catering operation and provide additional points of sale to cut down on guest wait times.
Peachtree Center will also be adding Freshii to its lineup of retail shops and restaurants.
The restaurant will open its doors near Peachtree Center’s Concierge on the Gallery Level this winter.
This will be owners Troy Mathews and Pat Marshall’s third Freshii location in Atlanta.
“Peachtree Center checked all the boxes for us when we were looking at spaces in downtown Atlanta,” Mathews said in the release.
“Its centralized location combined with its connectivity to six office towers and three major hotels were significant factors when making our decision to open in The Hub at Peachtree Center.”
