[EXCLUSIVE] Growing Franchise Chick'nCone to Hatch New Locations in Alpharetta and Reynoldstown

Yet another new chicken chain is entering the Atlanta market.  Chick'nCone, a franchise based in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania, has at least two locations coming to metro Atlanta, the first of which is slated to open in May in Alpharetta.  A second is planned to open later this year in Reynoldstown.  The Alpharetta outpost (5215 Windward Parkway) will occupy a space some might consider cursed, as it was previously home to Salsarita's Fresh Mexican Grill and before that, Uncle Maddio's PizzaK Cafe, an ill-fated fast casual concept restaurant from fast food chain Krystal, occupied the space before Uncle Maddio's.  

The premise at Chick'nCone is exactly that: chicken served in a cone.  The namesake food consists of chunks of breaded chicken strips served in a fresh made waffle cone.  The concept was originally created to be a food truck and catering service, but over time was expanded to the growing brick and mortar restaurant presence of today.  

The Reynoldstown restaurant, planned for Modera Reynoldstown (780 Memorial Drive), will open alongside previously announced eateries Envegan and Clean Juice.  The Alpharetta and Reynoldstown Chick'nCones are being opened by separate franchisees.  

The Chick'nCone website indicates that there are currently twelve locations open with another eleven coming soon, including the two planned for metro Atlanta. In addition, there are currently four units open in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as well as a unit planned for Toronto.  

The new Alpharetta outpost is slated to open Saturday May 8 at 11 AM, according to online postings.  

Have you ever been to Chick'nCone?  Does the idea of a chicken waffle cone excite you? What is your favorite fast food chicken chain?

That space in Alpharetta is indeed "cursed," mainly by the poor access and parking.

I'll try it. It looks good. Though the cone needs to be a little more savory than your typical ice cream based waffle cone. Also, I need safe pedestrian access from the beltline, and it looks like the sidewalk will be wide and setback from Memorial. I live in Reynoldstown and would only walk to something like this.

This is a concept that will fail in Alpharetta.
