“It will likely close for a little over a week. The project should be completed by the end of the year,” Diana Pannier, Director of Marketing at Willy’s, told What Now Atlanta (WNA) in a telephone conversation Wednesday.

Most of the 27 Willy’s locations have undergone some sort renovations since 2014 as part of the quick-service restaurant’s plan to refresh its older stores.

“The renovations across all of the stores should be finished by the end of 2016,” Pannier added.

At the Howell Mill location, renovations on the 3,721-sqaure-foot restaurant will cost an estimated $200,000. The project plans to get underway in the coming weeks to meet its hopes of finishing by the end of 2015.
