The Atlanta-based fried chicken chain re-opened on Ponce in late 2011 after closing a nearby location years before. I noticed the closure this week, but apparently the restaurant closed in mid December. A nearby Popeyes remains open.
Though once operated by the same owner as Popeyes, the Church's is currently owned by San Francisco-based private equity group, Friedman, Fleischer & Lowe. Like Popeyes, Arby's and soon Krystal, Church's is based in Sandy Springs.
If Church's can't last on Ponce, who can? Who / what should replace the restaurant? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
