The Ponko Coop Grows

Ever since the inception of the Ponko brand in 1998, we'd always dreamed of franchising this concept. Even after closing our doors in 2008, we never gave up the hope of franchising one day. It wasn't until 2017, when our partner, Dr. Patrick Sallarulo, invested in us and opened our Chamblee brick and mortar, that we could taste our dream becoming a reality. Fast forward to April 2019, we've opened our first franchise location in Midtown Atlanta, and we couldn't be more proud.

We warmly welcome, Ponko's first franchise owners, Shane Godfrey and Johnny Esposito to the Ponko team. We are excited to work alongside them not only because of their talent and experience but, more so, because they are good people who will proudly carry our core beliefs to each and every customer who walks in their doors.

We feel incredibly honored to be able to express love through our food and the Ponko experience, and we look forward to spreading our passion for great service and wonderful food to even more of you beautiful, hungry people.

Visit our new Midtown location at 915 West Peachtree Street NW, Suite 6, Atlanta, GA 30309.
