Fast Casual Bakery Café Creates Collaborative Workspace for Increased Productivity and Flexibility

ATLANTA – More than just a fast casual restaurant, Atlanta Bread South Cobb is where guests gather to make the most out of their meals and their time. The bakery café chain known for its sandwiches, soups, salads and freshly baked pastries is changing the landscape of the fine dining segment at its Smyrna restaurant, which now serves as a space not only for eating, but also for meeting, working and socializing.

Located at 4490 South Cobb Drive, the restaurant unveiled a new look in summer 2018 that includes private meeting rooms and seating meant to spark conversations. As the number of remote workers using the restaurant for business increased, Atlanta Bread adapted the space for the changing consumer demand.

“Offering conference rooms and comfortable seating allows our guests to use the South Cobb space as a gathering spot, study room or remote office,” says Atlanta Bread’s chief operating officer Basil Couvaras.

Originally built in 2002, the remodeled restaurant now features updated furniture, plenty of lounge and conversation seating, and a dining room that seats approximately 100 guests. Atlanta Bread’s conference space features two meeting rooms – the Sourdough Suite and the Honey Wheat Suite – that can accommodate eight to 14 guests and are equipped with audio/visual technology including a 75-inch Samsung Smart TV with wireless connection and HDMI hook up, USB plug in and whiteboard space. Guests can reserve available meeting rooms on-site or in advance by booking online or by contacting the Smyrna restaurant. Once guests reserve a room, they have the option to order catering or order upon arrival.

To complement the fresh décor, Atlanta Bread serves sandwiches, soups, salads, desserts and all-day breakfast items to satisfy appetites with wholesome ingredients and quality, no-fuss food. All breads, pastries and desserts are baked fresh daily at the restaurant.

  • Turkey sausage and egg white sandwich with choice of cheese on a bagel or croissant
