Fifth Group In The News

We’re proud of our growth within Atlanta over the past 25 years and for all of our plans to expand and keep up with our city’s mind-blowing pace. Also, we’re proud of the recent recognition our awesome local media has given to Fifth Group Restaurants as an industry leader from culinary expertise to culture to philanthropy.

The Atlantan by Modern Luxury featured all three of our partners – Kris Reinhard, Robby Kukler, and Steve Simon – on the back page of the July/August “Feast,” issue, delving into FGR’s quarter century of delivering delicious to ATL. The magazine highlighted the massive success of Bold Catering & Design and the upcoming upenings of Ecco and Alma Cocina in Buckhead.

Atlanta Business Chronicle celebrated our 25th anniversary with us, noting South City Kitchen’s lasting impact and exponential growth in the region. The ABC highlighted co-founder and partner Robby Kukler in their list of 2018’s Most Admired CEOs alongside the city’s best businesspeople across sectors, as well as in the Hospitality Quarterly “Who’s Who,” where Robby shared his career highlights (including his board membership at the Atlanta Community Food Bank.)

The AJC cited Fifth Group’s decision to eliminate plastic straws from our restaurants – an initiative that gets more popular each day. By switching to biodegradable, we hope to reduce our impact on landfills and encourage a spirit of sustainability among our patrons staff. That same spirit that has helped guide our growth so far and only becomes more important with each year (and especially each quarter century!)

We’re glad that this coverage helps friends and fans of our brands everywhere follow along on Fifth Group’s wild journey. We’re just getting started and can’t wait to tell you what’s next!
