North Carolina-based Brixx Wood Fired Pizza will debut in Georgia this fall with three initial locations. Two of the units will be in the Atlanta suburbs of Peachtree City and Marietta, while the third will be in Athens, Ga.
All three will be opened by Brixx Wood Fired Pizza franchise owners:
- L.B. Duck LLC, has signed a lease for 3,223 square feet in The Avenue in Peachtree City, a southwestern suburb of Atlanta.
- NAS Holdings Inc. will open a 3,600 square foot Brixx in Marietta, a northwestern suburb of Atlanta, at The Avenue East Cobb.
- The third new location at 131 W. Washington Street, a few blocks from the University of Georgia in Athens, will be owned by Alan Overcash.
"We've had our eye on expansion into Georgia for a long time now, but we knew we'd need the right locations and the right ownership groups. Now, we've got them," said Neil Newcomb, president of Brixx Franchise Systems.
The first Brixx opened in Charlotte, N.C., in 1998. There are now 21 locations in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
