Menu for the Week of August 12, 2013 — Next Steps and A Big Thank You to Invest Atlanta!

First, let us thank all of the Falcons fans who came and saw us at The Dome for last Thursdays game.  With your support, both of our carts were almost sell outs, so we are already cranking out more product for the next preseason game at home on the 29th!  With our opening game jitters behind us, it’s time to set our sights on what’s next.  As many of you already know, we have joined the Krog Street Market family by signing a lease to open a second location, which will focus more on full-scale American butchery and will feature a large cheese shop with some of the finest offerings for regional cheeses in Atlanta.

These next steps are always on our mind, but they are even more so tonight, as the first step to making this level of production a reality occurs tomorrow, when we close on a small loan from Invest Atlanta — the wonderful people you may know as The Atlanta Development Authority, who are already investing in the city through projects like the Beltline.  This loan will allow us to expand at our current facility on Hosea Williams and buy some much-needed bigger equipment so that we can start ramping up to supply the second location at Krog, the two Falcons carts, farmers markets, our current retail shop, and of course your favorite restaurants around town!  The people of Invest Atlanta have been absolutely wonderful to work with so far — seeing our visions of growth not only for ourselves, but for our neighborhood, employees, the city at large, and then the Southeast.  We knew we had made the right choice when we decided to invest in our community by opening our first location in our own backyard of Kirkwood, but that decision was fortified when we realized Kirkwood was deemed an “Opportunity Zone” in which the city was even more inclined to invest.  We couldn’t be taking this next step without Invest Atlanta, so this post is to thank the city of Atlanta and Invest Atlanta for believing in this city and its small businesses. We are so proud to call Atlanta home!!
