Buca di Beppo, a family-style Italian restaurant, has partnered with Augusta Mall owners General Growth Properties to open a location in Augusta this summer.
The partnership will create 10 new Buca di Beppo locations at GGP malls across the country. Georgia is also getting a new location in Macon at The Shoppes at River Crossing. Buca di Beppo already had a restaurant in Alpharetta.
“These malls are situated in markets where customers desire expanded sit-down restaurant options. Each opening will complement the dining selection, further solidify the malls standing as a popular dining destination and add much-needed jobs to the market. It’s great news for everyone,” said Alan Barocas, the senior executive vice president of leasing for GGP.
The new Buca di Beppo restaurants will range in size from 4,500 square feet to 7,000 square feet and all units are scheduled to open in this summer. Buca di Beppo is a Chicago-based company owned by Planet Hollywood Inc., and now has more than 90 locations worldwide.
