"This is our ninth Checkers franchise in Atlanta, and we are grateful for the opportunity to serve our loyal guests," says Checkers franchisee Aziz Hashim, CEO of National Restaurant Development Inc. and owner of the Fairlie-Poplar location. "We will continue to invest in our city and enjoy hiring from and becoming a part of the communities in which we operate."
"I have lived in Atlanta for 33 years, and I'm extremely grateful for the opportunity to bring Checkers' incredible food to my neighbors," says Checkers franchisee Ali Parsa, owner of the Peachtree Center location. "This is my second Checkers restaurant, but I have more than 30 years of experience in the food industry. I look forward to becoming even more involved in our community."
