[UPDATE] Hoots Tweaks Name, Signs Third Atlanta Area Lease

ToNeTo Atlanta in February was first to report that the junior Hooters concept was expanding beyond their initial test near Chicago to include an outpost in Reynoldtown.  Now, with the Reynoldstown location still under construction, the company seems especially bullish on not only the concept, but metro Atlanta in particular.  Hooters will be opening not just one, but at least three, Atlanta area locations of their new quick-serve eatery Hoot's in the coming months.  Already underway and opening soon at Madison Yards in Reynoldstown, two additional locations are planned for Peachtree Corners Town Center in Peachtree Corners and North Decatur Station (fka North Decatur Square) near Decatur.

[Mazel Tov!] The General Muir to Drop Anchor in Sandy Springs For Second Restaurant

The owners of The General Muir plan to open a second location of their popular Jewish-style deli early next year at City Springs in Sandy Springs.  The restaurant, to be located along Johnson Ferry Road, will occupy a 3,118 square foot space, about half the size of the group's original outpost at Emory Point.  The Sandy Springs restaurant, which will also have a good size patio, is actually only slightly smaller in size than the Emory Point outpost, when you consider that about 2,000 square feet of the roughly 5,900 square foot restaurant is home to TGM Bread, which will not have a presence at City Springs.

Mishti Holdings LLC, the parent company of gourmet candy shop Lolli & Pops, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on August 13.  Lolli & Pops has 69 stores nationwide, with all but two located in traditional shopping malls. The company listed between $1 million and $10 million in liabilities and $500,000 to $1 million in assets.  The company partnered with major mall owner General Growth Properties (GGP) in 2017 to open 40 stores in their malls.  GGP, now owned by and known as Brookfield Properties, has reportedly locked the retailer out of several locations nationwide.  Multiple stores' employees were locked out this week with signage on at least one store saying “notice of temporary lockout for nonpayment of rental.” The retailer, which sold premium chocolates, candy and other dessert items, has Atlanta area locations in Perimeter Mall in Dunwoody and North Point Mall in Alpharetta, both of which are Brookfield owned malls.
