Gladys Knight’s Chicken and Waffles spending $100K on remodel, expansion
Downtown chicken joint submits building permit application for construction plans.
Gladys Knight’s Chicken and Waffles is renovating its 16-year-old downtown location. The restaurant, known for its chicken and waffles, first opened in Atlanta in 1996.
Gladys Knight’s Chicken and Waffles submitted a building permit application with City of Atlanta at the beginning of October for its expansion and remodeling plans, totaling an estimated $100,000.
What Now Atlanta spoke with Kourtney Reed, marketing director for the restaurant chain, about the renovation project Tuesday. Reed would not comment on the chicken joint’s plans for remodeling and expanding its downtown location.
Coincidently, the building that houses Gladys Knight’s Chicken and Waffles, at 529 Peachtree St. NE, sold for $1,050,000 ($282/sq.ft.) on April 19, 2012, just months before the permit was filed, according to Realty Trac.
Reed would not confirm nor deny whether or not Gladys Knight’s Chicken and Waffles purchased the building as part of its expansion plans.
