History of Sweet Georgia's Juke Joint
Sweet Georgia's Juke Joint opened in 2008 and celebrates a time when life was slower and sweeter, when music and food was at the heart of social gatherings.
Inspiration for the restaurant came from a centuries-old word: The word yuka, which is derived from a West African word that means to make noise. African Americans brought this notion with them to the Old South and created juke houses, house-taverns established for fun and music. Sweet Georgia's Juke Joint intends to capture some of the merriment of those old juke houses and has been created especially as a place for you to sit back, relax, and have some fun.
Decorated with album covers from the 1970s, Sweet Georgia's Juke Joint is a funky and fun setting where customers can relive happy memories. Juke box tunes from four decades the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990stake patrons back to days of the past. And southern-inspired dishes range from The Famous Seadog, which is battered cod fish served on a hotdog bun and topped with coleslaw, to our signature Bar-B-Q Pork Rib Basket, which includes half a rack of lip-smacking ribs.
History of Sojourner's Cafe
Sojourners Cafe was born at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Back in 1996 Global Concessions, Inc. (GCI) developed a chic-eclectic style lounge on Concourse D. This lounge hit home with a diverse and discretionary customer base and Sojourners became over a short period of time, the destination location for the frequent traveler and the place to be at Hartsfield-Jackson. A significant amount of effort was spent on making sure that the lounge made maximum use of relatively small space totaling just 754 square feet. In our design, we attempted to capture the flavor of the Caribbean and our menu reflected this approach, while our design theme offered pastel colors, reminiscent of the islands. We even conducted a contest to determine the name of the lounge. Finally, we selected Sojourners, which means A brief visit. A place to dwell for a short period of time.
During 1999, GCI executed two initiatives that began an era of prosperity for Sojourners its leadership and outstanding customer service. The Sojourners phenomenon continues with three locations and it is widely believed that we have the best customer service at Hartsfield-Jackson.
Today, Sojourners Cafe presents a chic and contemporary image to travelers with an expanded and tasteful menu. The mood is sophisticated, relaxing, and stimulating catering to the special needs of toady's travelers.
In 1969 the founders of Arthur Treacher's purchased Malin's and with it, the original fish and chips recipe. Since then we've adjusted the menu to accommodate American tastes and expanded it to include shrimp, clams, fried chicken, and popular side orders including tasty hush puppies and unique cole slaw. All of which makes Arthur Treacher's Fish & Chips the traditional English meal perfect for today's All-American appetite!
Arthur Treacher's brings old England's national snack of batter-fried fish escorted by huge fries to these shores to satisfy All-American appetites. Don't forget a dash of malt vinegar!
History of Great Wraps
Back in the early 1980's, when the company began serving delicious, hot wrapped sandwiches, they had no idea that their unique menu would eventually help revolutionize American quick-serve food. In those early years, the concept built a loyal following of adventurous customers who refused to follow the masses to traditional fast food outlets.
In 1989, the Company was acquired by Mark Kaplan and Bob Solomon, former Coca-Cola executives, with over 20 years of proven corporate and marketing experience. Mark and Bob recognized the huge potential for wrapped sandwiches. They felt that America would grow tired of boring, tasteless fast burgers, pizza and subs, and would jump at a new sandwich format that was tastier, healthier and more fun.
Great Wraps combines a basic American taste with an appealing Mediterranean flair. These delicious Wraps are made by wrapping hot, crepe-like pita bread around Gyro Roast (i.e. special blend of beef and lamb), chicken or steak, with fresh vegetables and special sauces. Complemented with our own style of Philly sandwiches, and salads makes Great Wraps! the perfect concept for the airport traveler.
History of Nathans Famous
It began as a nickel hot dog stand in Coney Island in 1916 and grew to become the much-loved New York institution now available throughout the United States and overseas and has become the most recognizable name in hot dogs. Nathan's Famous recently entered a dynamic new stage, evolving from a company that owned and operated restaurants to a company that owns and markets brands.
For the majority of its 85 years, Nathan's focused on the sale of its products through fast-food restaurants. Recently, however, the company has implemented an aggressive strategy to expand the reach of its brand by diversifying product offerings and adopting an expanding points-of-distribution program.
World Famous, All-Beef Hot Dogs are 100% beef with a special blend of spices and garlic served on a warm roll. They snap with a burst of juice when you bite into them.
