Earlier this week we announced that Thai Gourmet would be reopening as a Juicy Green yogurt eatery. Now, Checkers is opening too, right across the street. Taking a space that had most recently been KFC, Checkers is opening on Broad Street in downtown Atlanta. Based in Tampa Bay, Florida, Checker's Drive-In Restaurants will enter Broad Street amidst stiff competition from Taco Bell to its left and McDonald's not far to its right. Additionally, "Wonderful World," from Tin Drum Asia Cafe, offers affordable hamburgers a few doors down. Rumor has it that Chick-Fil-A has its sights set on a location in the area also. Though no opening date has been announced for Checkers, we expect for them to open by mid September. Repeat Atlanta!
