[Mmmmmm] Mableton's Martin's Makes Plans for 18th Restaurant

Popular breakfast joint Martin's is expanding to Canton with its 18th overall location.  The small chain, based in Mableton, plans to open its new restaurant at 3494 Marietta Highway in Cherokee County this November.  Martin's traces its roots to 1962 when it was known as "Martin the Burger Boy."  The restaurants are only open for breakfast and lunch (MON-SAT 5AM-3PM / SUN 6AM-3PM) and are known for their biscuits, burgers and onion rings, among other menu offerings.

Martin's, unlike many other chain breakfast restaurants such as Bojangles' and Waffle House, is locally owned, is [currently] only in Georgia and [currently] does not franchise.   

"We are a small, growing company that concerns itself about what is going on inside our doors, not what is happening down the street. Communication and teamwork are how we define success. Take care of your people, and they will take care of your customers. We are a hands-on organization that talks with our managers daily – ask them and see!" 

Martin's motto is "Fresh Tastes Best."  

"Our motto isn’t just a handy catch-phrase, it’s what sets us apart from the typical fast-food restaurant. Our menu items are prepared fresh and from scratch daily, our chicken is hand filleted, breaded in our special blend of seasonings, and cooked fresh. Our biscuits, the finest in the business are made from scratch each day. And you’ve never tasted good onion rings until you’ve had ours! Come in today and see how freshness makes our food the best you’ve tasted."

Our friends at Scoop OTP first reported news of Martin's planned opening, a report that was reportedly met with tremendous excitement in the local community.  Martin's is primarily found in rural parts of Georgia and those who live closer in but have tasted food from the restaurant, get hooked and often comment, gripe, pray, etc. for the chain to expand.  

The Canton location will be the third new, ground up location to open in the past three years following the openings of Rockmart in 2017 and Dallas in 2018.  The Rockmart restaurant was the first new location that the company had opened since 2002.  

Owners Milan Savic and Jon Molander reportedly have plans to add even more new locations in the years to come.  "We will be adding more [locations] and are in the process of that now.  I can’t disclose where but keep watching." said Kathleen Tibbitts, Martin's Marketing Director.  

When we reported in April on the closure of the Burger King on Sandy Plains Road near Sprayberry Crossing, Martin's was frequently mentioned by readers as a desired replacement for the shuttered burger joint.  While we know there were at least calls between the brokers for the site and Martin's, it's unclear if anything came of them.  

Are you excited for the opening of Martin's in Canton?  What is your favorite breakfast restaurant?  Where would you like to see Martin's open next?

They need to spend that money cleaning up the nasty stores they already have. A little property maintenance would help too. Good food but poorly maintained. They don't seem too concerned about their appearance in the community.

I worked for the company for a few years, back in the early 90's. The small company is great to their employees. And the food is sooo good.

Blue Ridge! Moved here 10 years ago from Cobb. Still can't find a decent biscuit.

It reminds me of going to Grandma’s house. The smell of homemade biscuits and tenderloin frying, Doesn’t get any better than that!

I'm so excited they have the best biscuits and gravy in the world and country-ham biscuits Yummy

I completely agree. They need to invest in remolding some of their older stores. Good food in a 1970's footprint can be a struggle to enjoy
