World of Beer primed for Perimeter.
Metro Atlanta is scheduled to get a third location of World of Beer when the Tampa, Florida-based chain opens in Perimeter Place early next year. World of Beer will open in place of the shuttered, roughly 7000 square foot, Cheeseburger in Paradise.
Cheeseburger in Paradise closed in late 2012, claiming at the time it was remodeling and would reopen later that year.
In early 2013, Los Angeles based Mad Bull's Tavern announced it would open in the space but that never happened.
A World of Beer representative indicated the plan is to have the new location open early next year.
World of Beer features hundreds of regional, national and global beers and assorted tavern fare and joins existing beer-centric eatery Taco Mac in the mixed-use project near Perimeter Mall.
World of Beer started in Tampa in 2007 and has grown to nearly 70 locations nationwide. The chain currently has metro Atlanta locations in midtown and Kennesaw as well as locations in both Pooler and Savannah.
Overall the chain has performed well, but a franchised location in Jacksonville Beach, Florida that had just opened in January closed abruptly this past Saturday.
Are you a fan of World of Beer? Do you think their concept will do well in Dunwoody? Where else would you like to see World of Beer open?
