Bits & Bites

After being closed for about a year, On The Border plans to reopen their Alpharetta area restaurant Monday April 12.  The restaurant, located in a freestanding building at 10575 Davis Drive, just off Mansell Road, was repainted, renovated and will debut a new soon-to-launch chain-wide menu when it opens.  The Alpharetta On The Border is one of five in metro Atlanta for the Irving, Texas-based chain. The other Atlanta area locations are in Buckhead, Kennesaw, Buford and Duluth, which according to the company's website is operating exclusively for to-go and catering orders.

A new-to-market chicken chain is looking to find success where another failed.  Slim Chickens, based in Fayetteville, Arkansas, plans to open a new location in Evans in place of PDQ.  Based in Tampa, PDQ opened its ground up location in the Augusta suburb of Evans in 2014, but closed it in late 2019.  The roughly 4,200 square foot state of the art freestanding building features the all important drive-thru and was built specifically for PDQ.

[UPDATE] Starbucks Makes Strange Move in Sandy Springs

In a quiet and baffling February move, Starbucks closed a roughly seven year old Sandy Springs location.  The strange thing about the closure is the fact that the Starbucks - in The Prado at 5660 Roswell Road - featured the all important drive-thru!  Signage at the Starbucks indicates that it closed as of February 23 with would-be patrons directed to one of the many other nearby Starbucks locations.  Despite having closed nearly a month ago, the 1,850 square foot Starbucks is still listed as an open and active tenant on the center's website
