Atlanta Bread, the company behind a $1.2 billion investment in a bread manufacturing facility, will open a store in the Atlanta area.
The Atlanta-based company is owned by former General Mills chairman Richard Pyle.
The company will operate out of a two-story brick and mortar space at 1123 North Fourth Street.
It will include a bakery, a full-service coffee shop and a wine bar.
The Georgia State Fairgrounds is a stop on the tour.
“We’re thrilled to welcome the Atlanta Bakers to our growing family,” said Pyle, who was the former CEO of General Mills.
“Georgia is a state with a rich history of artisanal breads and we are excited to welcome them to the region.”
Atlanta Bread is a division of Atlanta Bread Group, which owns the Atlanta-area franchise of General Foods.
It employs around 100 people.
