Tin Drum shutters suburban location.
Atlanta-based Tin Drum
Asiacafe Asian Kitchen has closed its Kennesaw location. The restaurant, which opened in Barrett Creek Plaza shopping center on Ernest Barrett Parkway in late 2012, closed a few days ago. The franchised location was opened by Asad Mazahir, who also owned the Tin Drum on Broad and Peachtree Streets by Georgia State, which closed last year. (I've been thus far unable to determine if Mazahir was the current owner of the Kennesaw location.)
I wrote about the Kennesaw location ahead of its opening and foreshadowed trouble for the restaurant. The restaurant had an inferior location with limited street visibility and was neither super close to Kennesaw State University or Town Center at Cobb.
Tin Drum locations have previously closed in Emory Village, Buckhead and Birmingham, Alabama.
According to Tin Drum's website, the company currently has eleven restaurants in Georgia and one in Oldsmar, Florida.
