Rumor has it that Atlanta might be getting its very own Shake Shack. Kim Severson, the Atlanta bureau chief for the New York Times, tweeted this morning: "Heard last night that Shake Shack and even Donald Link might be headed to Atlanta when that old Sears building gets rehabilitated. #2014"
That old Sears building is Ponce City Market, currently home to a lot of renovations as well as Dancing Goats Coffee Bar. It's slated to open next year in the style of New York's Chelsea Market. Inman Park's similar project, Krog Street Market, has plans to open this summer and will include a Austin, Texas-esque Mexican joint from empire builder Ford Fry.
