Alpharetta location of The Varsity will close Feb. 1
A New Winder location is scheduled for spring.
There will be no more “What’ll ya have?” in Alpharetta anymore come Feb. 1.
Varsity president Gordon Muir released a statement on the restaurant’s website confirming the closure:
After a great deal of thought and consideration, the leadership of The Varsity has decided to close our store in Alpharetta on Feb 1. We would like to sincerely thank the people of Alpharetta for welcoming us in their community for the past 12 years. We weighed a number of options and came to the conclusion that our three other stores north of the perimeter –Town Center (Kennesaw), Dawsonville and Gwinnett (Norcross) – can effectively serve our customers in this area. Many of the outstanding team members from our Alpharetta store already work at our other locations and will continue to carry the spirit of hospitality to our customers that The Varsity has been known for
– Gordon Muir, President, The Varsity
The original location of The Varsity, located in Midtown at 61 North Ave. N.W., has been open since 1928. In addition to the Kennesaw, Dawsonville and Norcross locations, there are also Varsity restaurants in Athens and Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, Terminals C and F. A Winder location is scheduled for spring.
