The Food Shoppe will open its second location at 860 Peachtree Street, the former Gyro Bros location. “The Gyro Bros location became available and we decided to take a risk. We thought it would be a great opportunity,” said The Food Shoppe owner, Angela Montrel.
The Food Shoppe is proud of its expansion for its employees and local community members. “We have a lot of people that we have working with us, a lot of college students that we have, and we thought this would be another opportunity not just for us, but just to keep expanding and helping our employees with more opportunities,” Montrel said. The Food Shoppe has at least three employees who have worked there for over eight years.
Founded in 2013, The Food Shoppe is family-owned and operated. The business is run by Angela, her son, and her husband, Chef Ronald, who work diligently to ensure the business’ success. “We’re not perfect but we value our customers and I personally try to read and respond to every review, good or bad,” Angela told What Now Atlanta. “We love taking care of our customers.”
There is an array of New Orleans-inspired food available at the Food Shoppe, including Shrimp Creole Omelet, File’ Gumbo and Rice & Red Beans. Among the most popular dishes are Ms Angie’s Bread Pudding and the Voodoo Chicken and Mac with Bourbon Sauce.
The atmosphere is inviting, and guests can relax with friends while listening to the jazz music playing in the background. “We want to spread the type of love and joy that we have at 123 Luckie Street and bring it to the new location,” Angela said.
The Food Shoppe is currently working on its new location to emulate the Luckie Street vibe but is taking its time to get it right. Guests can expect the same menu and atmosphere as the flagship location. Angela says the new 860 Peachtree Street location is set to open in July 2022.
