Tomorrow's News Today Launching New Segment

Many of you have called me out for my DeathWatch, yet the majority of comments this entire year came on its quarterly posts, and in some cases, like the closure of all El Pollo Locos in Atlanta, a restaurants demise locally. BirthWatch garners interest as well, but is less controversial than the DeathWatch, and inspires less interest.

Due in part to this, and also to better distinguish this blog and my interests, I will be launching a new series later this month.

Over the past year or so I've been able to do a fair amount of travel for work and have been impressed with some concepts in other cities. In addition, I read trade publications and try to stay up on new trends and concepts in the retail, restaurant and hotel segments of the real estate industry.

In the weeks and months to come, I will highlight new and or growing concepts in the aforementioned industries. In most instances, those businesses highlighted will be ones that I feel would do well locally.

One of my first posts will be a dual post of sorts. A new restaurant already has plans for opening their first brick and mortar location ever, here in Atlanta. The concept was previously in operation as a food truck on the west coast but the owners plan to launch and grow this concept right here in metro Atlanta!

I hope this new segment is of interest and that perhaps some of these concepts do make their way to Atlanta. I'm always open to comments and suggestions so please feel free to submit ideas for future posts and or concepts you're working with and or have dined, shopped or stayed with you think would be a great fit in Atlanta.

I really enjoy reading your website. I can see good and bad about the deathwatch. May keep some people from going to places if they are on the list. Some of the places are obvious that they are in trouble. Will keep reading this site.
