Okiboru Opening New Location at Mall of Georgia
Ackerman Retail’s Daniel Yi brokers lease for ramen eatery’s fourth location in metro Atlanta.
ATLANTA, January 19, 2023 – With a lease signing at Mall of Georgia, the largest mall in the state, ramen eatery Okiboru is opening its fourth location in metro Atlanta, joining locations in Sandy Springs, Buckhead and Duluth.
Ackerman Retail Vice President Daniel Yi represented Okiboru in the 3,659-square-foot lease at the Mall of Georgia in a prime location in the mall’s large “Village” section that features an amphitheater, lawn, and restaurants and retailers in an outdoor setting. Okiboru’s space is located next to the Cheesecake Factory and near an assortment of other popular local and national eateries. The restaurant is targeting a 3Q 2023 opening.
“This is a great location for Okiboru as it continues to expand in metro Atlanta. Ramen restaurants are one of the hottest culinary trends, and this lease gives Okiboru a prominent space in one of Simon Property Group’s highest-performing retail centers in the U.S.,” said Daniel Yi. “The Mall of Georgia attracts millions of visitors each year from across the northeast Atlanta suburbs as well as travelers along busy Interstate 85 who stop at the mall to enjoy a meal or to shop at one of the 200-plus stores.”
Daniel Yi is assisting Okiboru in its search for additional locations in metro Atlanta.
Okiboru specializes in Tsukemen, a dipping ramen in which noodles are served separately for dipping in one of the restaurant’s flavorful broths. The menu also features traditional Tonkotsu ramen varieties, ramen bowls such as Truffle Shoyu (with light chicken and fish broth), veggie options such as Yasai (with a vegetable and mushroom broth), bao buns and garlic Nori fries, as well as unique items only available at individual locations.
Okiboru makes ramen noodles from scratch on-site from its own recipe, slowly simmered for twice as long as typical ramen broth so that it has the ideal consistency and flavor.
Okiboru’s current metro Atlanta locations include:
- 6125 Roswell Road, Sandy Springs, GA 30328
- 3614 Satellite Blvd., Duluth, GA 30096
- 2277 Peachtree Road, Atlanta (Buckhead), GA 30309
In addition to metro Atlanta, Okiboru has a location in Manhattan at 117 Orchard Street, New York; see the recent review of the New York location here. For more information, visit www.okiboru.com
