Boardwalk Brings Burgers, Fries to Atlanta

Boardwalk Investment Group announced that it will soon be opening a Boardwalk Fresh Burgers and Fries location at the Ansley Mall in Atlanta. 

Boardwalk Fresh Burgers and Fries is a Maryland-based fast casual restaurant chain with development deals signed for Delaware, Florida, Michigan, New Jersey, Virginia, Michigan, Georgia, and Oregon.  

Stores are currently open in Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Georgia, California, and Florida. Michael Coles and Tony Ratliff, partners at Boardwalk Investment Group, signed a development deal with Boardwalk to open 50 restaurants throughout Georgia.

“We are excited to bring the Boardwalk experience to another Atlanta location," Coles says. "We believe that having fresh ground beef, wheat bun options, fresh cut fries, hand dipped milkshakes, and great healthy options like our black bean chipotle veggie burger is what separates us from our competitors.  We plan to be open this summer.“

"We are very excited to be part of the Ansley Mall tenant mix and bring another great option to the people of this community," Ratliff says.  

Boardwalk Fresh Burgers and Fries will be celebrating 30 years of corporate brand recognition with its sister company, Boardwalk Fries, this year.  Boardwalk Fries is the only national french fry brand in the U.S., begun in 1981.  Boardwalk Fresh Burgers and Fries was born out of that original concept in 2007.
