The Streatery Looks to Expand Down Peachtree

The Streatery, with two carts floating between five sites in downtown Atlanta, will expand to 6 carts in 15 locations, within the next month. Launched early last month in Downtown Atlanta, the carts are operated by Mike Fuller and Dave Liniado through a contract from Chicago-based General Growth Properties. General Growth is also the company hired by the city of Atlanta to operate the "vendor huts" that are now all over downtown Atlanta. Not quite Kogi, the Streatery does have both Twitter and Facebook to keep its fans in the know. The Streatery currently has weekday locations near Woodruff Park and the Georgia State Student Center and weekend locations near Philips Arena and Pemberton Place, home of the new World of Coca-Cola and the Georgia Aquarium. When the new carts arrive, tentative expansion plans call for locations north on Peachtree, possible near Peachtree Center, Colony Square in Midtown, Piedmont Park, and even Buckhead. The Streatery is a brilliant concept with an equally catchy name. Offerings include turkey, beef and veggie hot dogs. The turkey dog was good for $2.50, but I'd take my favorite turkey burger from Grindhouse for a buck fifty more any day! Assorted chips ,sodas and water are also offered. You can easily get your food, pay and get going in less than 5 minutes, at under $5. Not quite New York, but I like this idea far better than the ill fated vendor huts. ToNeTo Atlanta

One additional detail to note is that as of now the Streatery accepts cash only but plans to accept credit cards within the next month or so.

The guy working Georgia State never washes his hands, smokes cigs, and flirts with all the guys, plus he only wears one glove. Very disgusting. I pick up my daughter daily around 4:30PM, and I swear I've seen him put the unsold hotdogs back into the frozen bags with the new hotdogs on a daily basis. Someone is going to get sick. I would not refer any of my friends or anyone to this temporary joke of a business!
