California-based Bruxie, a five-unit chain that serves waffle sandwiches, chicken tenders and artisan custard shakes, is opening its first Georgia restaurant this spring in Athens across from the University of Georgia campus.
“Athens is home to champions, and when you win back-to-back national football titles, we will build a Bruxie in your town — with winning recipes and menu items unlike anything else,” Brett Gibson, an operating partner, said in a company press release. “Bruxie’s signature waffle sandwiches, incredible chicken tenders, scratch-made sauces, and thick shakes will bring mouth-watering, championship flavors to downtown Athens, and we can’t wait to welcome the local community into our restaurant very soon.”
Founded in 2010, Bruxie is tackling 2023 with a focus on expansion within California and beyond.
“Bruxie’s creative menu is unlike anything Athens currently offers, and we’re proud to introduce our unique menu and dining concept to the community as an exciting new dining destination for UGA students and local residents to call their own,” CEO Scott Grinstead said in the release. “We’re looking forward to becoming a fixture in the Athens community and are eager for our new guests to experience Bruxie’s unconventional sandwiches, salads, tenders and desserts for themselves.”
