[SCOOP] Jeni's Spendid Ice Creams Joining Coda in Midtown

Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams will later this fall open its sixth metro Atlanta location in Midtown.  The new "scoop shop" is slated to open within the food hall at the new coda project at 756 West Peachtree Street, not far from the campus of Georgia Tech.  A permit filed Thursday with the City of Atlanta indicates that the company will spend $130,000 to build out what sources indicate is a nearly 700 square foot stall within the hall. Jeni's is believed to be the "ice cream shop" that we previously reported was "close to signing" at the new development.
