The Daily, a forthcoming dining development planned for Alpharetta, has revealed two big names as the first tenants on its roster: King of Pops Bar and Biscuit Love.
King of Pops Bar, from the purveyors of Atlanta’s favorite frozen treats on sticks, will offer some exclusive-to-The Daily popsicles and “poptails” (alcoholic concoctions complemented with popsicles dunked in the liquid) at the development. It’s an idea similar to King of Pops Good Grub & Bar, the company’s food stall inside Ponce City Market. “It’ll be funky, unique, and, most importantly, a new way for us to connect with the community,” KoP co-founder Steven Carse said in a prepared statement Monday.
Biscuit Love is a wildly popular breakfast business that is based out of Nashville — food-television icon and Marietta resident Alton Brown has called the restaurant’s shrimp and grits the best he’s ever had. Owners Karl and Sarah Worley currently operate two locations in the Music City and have another planned for nearby Franklin, and their Alpharetta outpost will be the first outside the state of Tennessee. Sarah Worley says the Peach State expansion makes since because “we’ve had a strong Georgia following ever since we opened our first store.”
The Daily, developed by local firm Revel and Fresh Hospitality out of Nashville, will take up 14,000 square feet at 11556 Rainwater Drive, a location that previously housed The Varsity and is just northeast of North Point Mall. Developers hope to combine “the best aspects of casual restaurants, beer gardens, food halls, and event space in one unique, communal experience,” according to an official announcement. In addition to indoor space, there will be a 7,000-square-foot garden courtyard, which will host music, games, and other activities.
“There’s nothing quite like this, especially considering the variety and quality of tenants, the programming, the games and entertainment, and the look and feel of The Daily,” Revel’s George Banks said in a prepared statement. “We’ve had a lot of tenant interest and are looking forward to announcing additional tenants later this summer.”
Construction on the project will begin in August, and The Daily is expected to open to the public next May.
