Waffle House to open Centennial Olympic Park location, its signature store
New Downtown location to be the restaurant chain’s largest store.
Waffle House has plans to join other Atlanta institutions at Downtown’s Centennial Olympic Park with a “showcase” location.
The Atlanta-based national restaurant chain since 1955 is negotiating nearly an acre of land at 135 Andrew Young International Blvd for its newest location which will tell the Waffle House story, according to Pat Warner, vice president of marketing and communications for Waffle House.
Waffle House hopes to close on the deal in December, Warner told What Now Atlanta in a telephone interview Friday.
“Waffle House is an Atlanta institution,” Warner said. “We want to be in the heart of the city with the likes of Coke, the Georgia Aquarium and the Children’s Museum.”
If everything goes according to plan, Waffle House’s newest location could open by spring, he said.
Typical Waffle House locations offer seating for 30 to 35. Waffle House at Centennial Olympic Park will offer 43 seats inside as well as outdoor seats overlooking the park, according to Warner.
The restaurant overlooking Centennial Olympic Park will be the company’s third downtown location. The company has a restaurant at Underground Atlanta and one on the Georgia State University campus.
