Save The Colonnade

Heading into its 94th year of business, Atlanta institution, 
The Colonnade, needs our help to survive.

Known for the fried chicken, tomato aspic, and warm Parker House rolls, smiling welcoming staff and familiar company (oh and Randy Ritas). Any night at The Colonnade you’ll find local legends, elected officials, community doctors, or even the occasional celebrity –– all enjoying the famous Southern comfort food.

Like many small businesses and independent restaurants, The Colonnade’s owners, Jodi and David, are trying to make ends meet during this unprecedented time. PPP funds have been depleted while as many expenses as possible have been cut, but there’s little relief on the horizon.

Many of The Colonnade’s most loyal customers are also among the most vulnerable to complications from COVID-19. The owners have taken great steps to protect customers and employees, however sales are down about 60-70% while costs have increased. We can’t lose this important Atlanta institution that’s approaching 100 years in business. 

If you can, please donate to this fund. Every dollar will go to help The Colonnade survive the next few months. The loss of The Colonnade, which is imminent without financial relief, would be a significant blow to Atlanta. Please help if you can!
