Bits & Bites

A second former Huddle House restaurant will soon get new life as a different concept.  On the heels of the One Eyed Mule opening in the former Huddle House at 430 South Marietta Parkway, JimPa's Catsfish & Chicken  will be moving to the former Huddle House at 2420 Cobb Parkway at its intersection with McCollum Parkway in Kennesaw.  JimPa's was previously located at 3140 Cobb Parkway but closed in early May when they indicated they were moving to a "bigger and better space."   The original restaurant had been open eight years, and according to their Facebook page, had received a perfect 100 on their health score every year.  In addition to the restaurant, its owners operate a popular catering business.

Charming Charlie announced late Thursday that it plans to close all 261 of its stores after its second Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing in the past two years.  Entrepreneur  Charlie Chanaratsopon started the women's fashion and accessories business in 2004.  The Houston, Texas-based retailer operates eleven stores in Georgia including outposts at Cumberland Mall near Smyrna, Ashley Park in Newnan, Mall of Georgia in Buford, The Forum on Peachtree Parkway in Peachtree Corners, The Shoppes at River Crossing in Macon, The Avenue Webb Gin in Snellville, The Avenue Forsyth in Cumming, Arbor Place Mall in Douglasville, Oglethorpe Mall in Savannah, Augusta Mall in Augusta and Woodstock Square in Woodstock.  The Charming Charlie at Cumberland Mall was used in the filing of the hit 2018 comedy A Bad Moms Christmas.   Charming Charlie does not plan to offer severance to its employees, but seeks court approval to offer a one-time bonus to help close its locations. "The Store Bonuses are purposed to mitigate flight risk by incentivizing and rewarding store employees for staying with the Debtors through the Store Closing process," the company said in its filing.
