Pinky Cole, CEO and founder of Slutty Vegan ATL, is “yet again proving that with the right formula, you can be pandemic proof” as the entrepreneur today closed on a $1.4 million Old Fourth Ward property, according to a press release Friday. The Property will be home to Slutty Vegan ATL’s new headquarters and sits across the way from its newest restaurant.

“We are thrilled to move into the Slutty Vegan ATL headquarters in the historic Edgewood District of Atlanta,” Cole said. “It feels good to be a Black woman in business right now. I am grateful that I was able to work with a Black real estate broker and a Black bank for this purchase.”

Cole purchased the property from Grant Henry, the owner of neighbor Sister Louisa’s Church. Henry used to operate Church Murch and Church Annex out of the space, at 489 Edgewood Ave SE, but earlier this year put the property up for sale. “Edgewood will always be local and we welcomed Slutty Vegan to the street last month, and now at 489 Edgewood for yet another venture of Cole’s,” Henry told What Now Atlanta Friday. “It’s all about love on The Edgewood Corridor!”

The new headquarters will house Slutty Vegan’s 100 employees and will feature state of the art interior designs, and aesthetics as the business continues to grow. “We are representing black excellence in Atlanta in the exact neighborhood where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. grew up and it feels amazing,” Cole said.

Funny how the first people that actually took a risk in that commercial area were mostly white.
Sounds like Grant Henry made out pretty well on that deal.
Wonder what the verdict is on the Sound Table building…

there’s a wall put up, not sure if they’ll redo the bricks since the new building would pretty much share a wall with edgewood dynasty

Wow, that happened fast!
Can’t imagine an insurance company releasing funds that quickly (dealing with them is the worst).
Glad it’s been handled!

i bet the project next door took care of it to avoid a lengthy lawsuit, doesn’t do either side, or the edgewood area any good to have it drawn out.

That crossed my mind.
I also think I read that the Edgewood Avenue Business Association did a
GoFundMe or something– not sure if that was going towards the wall or the
business owners.
Nice to hear it’s been handled though. It would have been a real shame if we lost an old building like that…
