ALBANY, GA (WALB) - South Georgia will soon be home to one of the country's largest Newk's Eatery locations.
Construction crews have begun renovating a space in the Shoppes at Westover on North Westover Boulevard in Albany to make room for the restaurant.
Co-owner Umang Patel said Wednesday that the 5,000 square foot building will be one of the largest franchise locations in the country.
He and his partners believe Newk's is a perfect fit for Albany.
"For us, Newk's was that opportunity to allow this community a foray into fresh ingredients, and modern cutting-edge menu items," said Patel.
Patel said they hope to open the Newk's Eatery by Thanksgiving.
