FROM FROZEN SWEETS AND PET TREATS TO SPICED CHICKEN AND CAFFEINE OVERLOAD, THE WOMEN HAVE IT AT KROG STREET MARKET
ATLANTA: Paces Properties is ready to unleash another round of new tenants who will be at the highly-anticipated Krog Street Market. Set to open this June, KSM will be home to some incredible female business owners and chefs. This group of amazing women comes to KSM with extraordinary talent and is raising the bar while keeping with KSM's vision of locally established relationships throughout the community.
"Our tenant mix is incredible and to have James Beard winners and nominees makes us so fortunate to have so many great women involved in this project. Behind the scenes our leasing agent Lily Heimburger of SRS Real Estate Partners has done a fantastic job as have our PR guru Tara Murphy, our Stove Works office leasing agent Max White, and our zoning attorney Sharon Gay," said Pat Wilson of Paces Properties. "There are also several other women owners and co-owners that we've announced previously, from Megan Ouzts at the Spotted Trotter to Xanic Dunning of Pannus Bakery, from Cindy Tarrant at French Market Florist to Jennifer Johnson of Fred's Meat & Bread and Yvonne Kahn of Gu's Dumplings. Without these women this project wouldn't be nearly as successful."
Feedback thus far for KSM has been very positive and supports Paces Properties' vision of a diverse, culinary-driven destination where the neighborhood and surrounding communities relate to the mix of restaurants, market stalls and retailers; making this a regular (if not daily) stop when it opens.
To date, a mix of thirteen (13) restaurants, market stalls and retailers have been released including the following four (4):
SPICE ROAD CHICKEN
Concept: Known for her award-winning Kerala fried chicken and a 2013 James Beard nomination for Best New Restaurant for her Cardamom Hill, Asha will be developing a market stall spotlighting chicken. From fried chicken to rotisserie and a variety of signature sides, Spice Road Chicken will be an easy stop for dinner on the go!

Concept: Ice creams, sorbets, and frozen yogurts built from the ground up with all carefully sourced ingredients from around the world.
