[PIZZA PIZZA] Flying Crust Pizza & Wings Coming Soon to Former Genki Buckhead

A new restaurant specializing in pizza, wings and burgers is coming soon to Buckhead Village.  Flying Crust Pizza & Wings will open its first Atlanta area restaurant at 3186 Roswell Road.  The new eatery opens in place of Genki Noodles & Sushi which closed to complete "renovations" in 2017, but never reopened.   
Recently installed "Coming Soon" signage at the space promotes the upcoming restaurant as featuring "14 wing flavors," "5 amazing burgers," and a po'boy sandwich, but surprisingly, no mention of the pizza.

Flying Crust is being opened by serial entrepreneur Garis Eddington who started the business as a food truck in Philadelphia in 2014, and this past January opened a brick & mortar location in Pennsauken Township, New Jersey.  

The New Jersey location is currently closed after suffering significant damage after a drunk driver crashed into it earlier this month, but Eddington plans to reopen. 

"Flying Crust Pizza & Wings will feature fire roasted pizza created with fresh and organic ingredients that come together like a work of art and flavorful wings in fourteen mouthwatering flavors to satisfy your taste buds. Over twenty toppings will be offered for specialty pizzas. Wing flavors will include Mild, Hot, Atomic, Chipotle, Sweet BBQ, Hot BBQ, Garlic Parmesan, General TSO, Asian Sweet & Spicy, Lemon Pepper, Cajun, Jamaican Jerk, New Orleans, Sweet Teriyaki."

Flying Crust Buckhead is opening across the street from a busy Domino's location and around the corner from where Marco Betti plans to open Silvano Pizza in the former Buckhead BBQ in June.   

According to his LinkedIn profile, Eddington, 38, a native of Michigan, previously owned Raw Space Gallery in Castleberry Hill and also worked in residential real estate in Duluth.  The Flying Crust website indicates Eddington is also a seasoned restaurant consultant.   

"This mobile restaurant was conceived and developed by Garis Eddington. You should keep this pioneer on your radar, as he plans to launch more venues throughout the Tri State area over the next two years. He has worked in the restaurant industry for 8 years and has specialized in consulting with restaurant owners in Tampa, Florida, Atlanta, GA and Philadelphia, PA to increase profitability through improved marketing strategies, product knowledge and menu transformation. Garis is been one of today’s GO TO guys when it comes to restaurant consultations and brand development. Devoting much of his experience to working with professional athletes to create a life after sports, Imagine Not Knowing (INK) Marketing Group has been recognized as the ultimate power house to propel your company with one key objective; becoming significant after overcoming success!"   

The Flying Crust website indicates that aside from Atlanta, Eddington plans to launch additional food trucks in Charlotte, Charleston and Houston.  

Hours for the Atlanta location have not yet been published and aspects of the website are still "coming soon," but one would assume the restaurant will stay open late to take advantage of its location in the heart of the Buckhead bar district.    

Flying Crust is slated to open by mid to late June.

and while you're at it, please explain how General TSO and Asian Sweet & Spicy are two different wing flavors. Sounds like the same thing to me.
