Jittery Joe's Coffee Makes Short Lived Debut In Atlanta


Athens, Georgia based coffee joint Jittery Joe's had made an early exit from the metro Atlanta market. Just over a month ago, a brand spankin new location was opened in the a street level space in the new GSU student housing complex, "The Commons" on Piedmont Ave. While there are Starbucks up the road, as well as Saxby's coffee, they are both a fair walk. Despite all this, and the captive student audience, Jittery Joe's has ceased operations and the store is bare. No official word on the reason for the closure, though one students' theory was that they distributed to many "promo free" coupons to students and were never able to turn a profit.

That's a bummer. I miss jittery joes ever since leaving Athens. I would bet they would fair well in a neighborhood - Grant Park, East Atlanta, Dtown Decatur...
