Staff Report From Albany CEO

Thursday, November 30th, 2017

Newk's Eatery, the fast casual restaurant known for its culinary-driven menu, continues its growth with four franchised restaurants opening in Georgia in December. Over the last three years, Newk's has opened more than 45 new company-owned and franchised locations, growing the brand by over 60 percent.

The Georgia expansion includes locations in Albany and Smyrna, opening Monday, Dec. 4; as well as Canton and Columbus, opening in mid-December. The addition of these four restaurants will bring the total count in Georgia to 13.

"Our committed franchise partners are the key to driving our expansion in the Southeast and beyond," said Newk's CEO and Co-founder Chris Newcomb. "Newk's continues to offer an elevated fast casual dining experience that has been heartily embraced in the Georgia communities where we have restaurants, and we look forward to introducing our creative and flavorful dishes to new guests in Smyrna, Albany, Canton and Columbus."

Newk's Eatery serves made-from-scratch sandwiches, entrée salads, kettle-batch soups and hand-crafted pizzas for lunch and dinner. Every dish is prepared in Newk's open-view kitchens with premium ingredients, such as petite tenderloin steak, Atlantic salmon, all-white meat chicken breast and sushi-grade ahi tuna.

The centerpiece of the Newk's dining room is The Roundtable, where guests customize meals with complimentary condiments and extras, including house-roasted garlic in Italian extra-virgin olive oil, grated Parmesan cheese, capers, imported pepperoncini, Torinesi-style breadsticks, hand-cut house-made croutons and guest favorite bread-and-butter pickles.
