The franchisees of the Georgia-based locations of marijuana-themed sandwich shop Cheba Hut will begin looking at real estate properties in Athens at the end of January, according to Seth Larsen, the restaurant’s chief relationship officer.
The restaurant, which serves over 30 sandwiches named after marijuana strains, stated in a June 2019 press release that it planned to open two locations to the University of Georgia area by fall 2020. The release shortly followed the company’s announcement that it would open its first Georgia location in Atlanta by fall 2019.
Though the development of the Athens locations have slowed due to a slow-moving process of obtaining permits for Cheba Hut’s Atlanta storefront, the brand is still “definitely coming to Athens,” Larsen said.
