Atlanta Bread Company in Aiken Closes
Aiken’s location of Atlanta Bread Company, known for its sandwiches, salads and variety of breakfast items, permanently closed last week. The restaurant is one of two Atlanta Bread Company restaurants in the CSRA.
Some patrons who were at the restaurant on Friday afternoon were told that that location would shortly be closing permanently. An employee confirmed the closing on Monday. A sign on the door now reads, “It is with regret that the Atlanta Bread Co. of Aiken is no longer open for business.”
The Atlanta-based eatery is located at 1944 Whiskey Road Suite 101, next to the Sprint and T-Mobile stores, across the street from Chipotle.
The Augusta location of Atlanta Bread Company will continue to operate at the Augusta Exchange, next to Panda Express.
The owners of the restaurant, who also operate the Atlanta Bread Company at the Augusta Exchange, were not reached for comment.
Before the Aiken location of the restaurant closed, Augusta was one of only three markets outside Atlanta with multiple locations of Atlanta Bread Company. The others are the Denver metro area and the Fayetteville-Springdale-Rogers metro area in Arkansas, according to the company’s website.
Atlanta Bread Company first opened in Sandy Springs, a suburb of Atlanta. It now has around 30 locations throughout the country (most are in the south), with several located in Atlanta. The Aiken location of the restaurant opened in 2005.
