EVOS Opening at Roswell Market Place!

EVOS will soon be opening in the former Rugs International space at Roswell Market Place, located at Highway 9 & Mansell Road in Roswell.

Founded in 1994, Tampa, FL-based EVOS sets themselves apart from other fast-casual concepts by offering a healthy alternative. The concept’s name originated from the word "evolve"... and EVOS is successfully doing this in Atlanta by offering great-tasting food with reduced calories and no trans fats or processed food. Their unique menu consists of burgers made with hormone-free beef, air-baked fries (Airfries™), sandwiches & wraps, salads, organic milkshakes, and a variety of healthy options for kids. For you ketchup lovers out there (like me), EVOS has created "Ketchup Karma" - a line of specialty-flavored ketchups that include Original Americana, Garlic Gravity, Mesquite Magic and Cayenne Firewalker.

Located opposite from Chipotle and Starbucks, this will be EVOS 3rd location in the Atlanta MSA. Melody Holley with Colliers International represented the Landlord in the transaction, Jimmy Davis with Colliers International represented EVOS.

Tin Lizzy's Coming to Midtown!

Tin Lizzy's will soon be opening in the former Fuego Spanish Grill, located at 1136 Crescent Avenue in Midtown.

First planting their roots on the corner of Roswell Road and Piedmont Road in Buckhead, Tin Lizzy's is known for its laid-back and rustic atmosphere, unique patio seating, and singer/songwriter entertainment. Simple and priced right, their menu consists of variety of tacos, quesadillas and nachos, boneless chicken strips, dips, fresh salads, and homemade desserts. Combine the full bar with the inviting surroundings, and you have the perfect home for happy hours and networking events.

This space will be 3,000+/- square feet and should see tremendous lunch business with the surrounding office components along Peachtree Street. Tin Lizzy's is hoping to open the Midtown location before the Spring...just in time for Margarita season!

One Cafe Blanc Opening in Foreclosed Renaissance Walk

One Cafe Blanc will be opening soon at Renaissance Walk on the corner of Piedmont Avenue and Auburn Avenue.

Serving everything from custom-made salads and burgers to freshly prepared meals to-go (such as Whole Foods and Alons), One Cafe Blanc is striving to offer not only fullfilling meals, but a healthy solution to those customers on-the-go. There will be a coffee and pastry element to the concept, similar to Starbucks, in the hopes of capturing some of the walking traffic from the GA State students. Additionally, they will offer a variety of vegetarian selections as well as special foods for customers on low sugar and low salt diets.

Although Renaissance Walk is currently in foreclosure with only a few condos occupied, One Café Blanc feels confident they will succeed due to the college student traffic from Georgia State University and the 3 dormitories within walking distance.
