ATLANTA, January 24, 2019 – Ackerman Retail Executive Vice President Courtney Brumbelow has completed a 1,750-square-foot lease with Primo Hoagies, a New Jersey-based franchise specializing in Italian and Philly cheesesteak hoagies, at Perimeter Town Center in Sandy Springs. The lease marks the franchise’s entry into the metro Atlanta market.

The eatery is targeting a March opening date in the mixed-use center redeveloped and managed by Ackerman & Co. and located at 6115 Peachtree Dunwoody Road at the intersection of Hammond Road. Courtney Brumbelow represented landlord Ackerman & Co. in the lease signing with franchisee Brian Ottaviano.

Founded in 1992, Primo Hoagies has established a strong presence in Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey and now operates nearly 100 locations across the East Coast, including restaurants in Florida and South Carolina. The restaurant bakes its hoagie rolls on-site throughout the day and cuts its meats and cheeses to order.

“What differentiates Primo Hoagies is the quality of the ingredients, which includes the high-quality loin steak used to make our cheesesteaks,” Ottaviano said. “We’re very proud of our hoagies and how they’re made, and now we get to share these sandwiches that everyone is talking about with the people of Atlanta.”

Added Courtney Brumbelow, “I’m very pleased to complete this lease with Primo Hoagies that will bring its first metro Atlanta-area location to Perimeter Town Center. This strategically located center gives Primo Hoagies and other retailers and restaurants access to the area’s growing population, high-income demographics and large daytime population.”

The Perimeter Center submarket is one of Atlanta’s largest business districts with more than 30 million square feet of office space and 6 million square feet of retail.
