Bits & Bites

Fifth Third Bank plans to open a new branch in Roswell.  The Cincinnati-based bank plans to convert the existing Arby's restaurant at 665 West Crossville Road into a new bank branch.  The Arby's, which closed in the Trader Joe's anchored Roswell Crossing shopping center in late 2019, originally opened in 1999.  This marks at least the second time that the bank has taken over a former quick-serve restaurant building in metro Atlanta having previously converted the one-time El Pollo Loco along Buford Highway in Chamblee into a bank.  Elsewhere in metro Atlanta, Chase converted a former Pollo Tropical in Alpharetta and a former Krispy Kreme in Doraville into bank branches, while Regions demolished a former Pollo Tropical in East Cobb to build its new branch.

[EXCLUSIVE] Food Terminal to Open New Kennesaw Restaurant in 2022

A new location of Food Terminal is planned for Barrett Pavilion in Kennesaw.  The new restaurant will open in place of the former Joe's Crab Shack which shuttered in the 7,930 square foot freestanding building (2501 Cobb Place Boulevard) in 2019.  The new Kennesaw outpost will ultimately be the fourth for the growing Malaysian restaurant chain which opened their first restaurant along Buford Highway in Chamblee in 2017.
