Mike Nelson and Clay Harper, owners of Fellini’s Pizza and La Fonda Latina as well as Greater Good BBQ, developed 2nd + Hosea with Bolster and Jay Martin of ReDevStudio.
Perc was founded by Atlanta native Philip Brown, who, as an Athens-based musician in the early 2000s, worked as a barista between tours.
“I grew up in Atlanta, and it feels like home to me,” Brown said. “I’m so excited to be a part of Atlanta’s vibrant coffee scene. We’re especially thrilled to provide a comfortable space for the folks of East Lake and the surrounding neighborhoods to come share good times and awesome coffee.”
Brown partnered with Alan Fischer and Jared Hall, who will be active in the day-to-day operations of the East Lake location. Plans for food service include “focused, fresh, and tasty” dine-in, grab-and-go items and beer and wine service, according to Brown.

Perc will join several other businesses at 2nd + Hosea, including the newly-opened Salaryman, Greater Good BBQ, Mix'D Up Burgers and Poor Hendrix, as well as Cameo Salon. Mary Hoopa's House of Fried Chicken & Waffles closed in the development earlier this year, with Salaryman taking over the space.
The AJC has reached out to Bolster for a projected opening date for Perc.
