Mochinut to Open Downtown Atlanta Location

Ackerman Retail’s Daniel Yi brokers lease for fast-growing mochi donut chain for prime street-level space in Reflection student housing tower.

ATLANTA, December 2, 2022 Mochinut, the rapidly-growing California-based mochi donut chain, will open its first Downtown Atlanta location in a prime street-level retail space beneath the 742-bed, 25-story Reflection student apartment tower serving Georgia State University. The newest Mochinut in Georgia, located 111 John Wesley Dobbs Avenue, is scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2023.

Ackerman Retail Vice President Daniel Yi completed the lease on behalf of Boxete Group LLC, marking the franchisee’s third Mochinut store in metro Atlanta, with more locations to open next year. Dave Smith of Joel & Granot Real Estate LLC represented ownership, Atlantic Capital Properties.

“Coming to Downtown Atlanta is an exciting milestone in this popular donut concept’s ongoing expansion,” said Daniel Yi. “This location at the busy intersection of John Wesley Dobbs Avenue and Courtland Street gives Mochinut the opportunity to serve GSU students as well employees in the area and travelers staying in the many hotels nearby.”

Mochinut specializes in mochi donuts, a Japanese-American fusion donut made with rice flour and notable for its colorful and tasty variations. The Downtown Atlanta location will serve the full Mochinut menu, see www.mochinut.com

Daniel Yi is representing Mochinut in its ongoing expansion in Georgia. He has also completed leases for Mochinut at Mall Corners Shopping Center at 2131 Pleasant Hill Road in Duluth, and at the Lee + White food hall in Atlanta’s West End neighborhood.

With more than 100 locations across the U.S. from Massachusetts to Washington, Mochinut is expanding rapidly with plans for several more locations across metro Atlanta.
