Shop set to open in 2019

Sweet treats are coming to high-profile mixed-use development Pinewood Forest.

Atlanta's Honeysuckle Gelato is slated to open in late 2019 in the Fayetteville development, which is located next to Pinewood Studios, one of the biggest movie studios in the country.

"We've been searching for the right spaces in which to extend our brand footprint, and we found Pinewood Forest to be the ideal retail location," said Wes Jones, co-founder and co-owner of Honeysuckle Gelato in a press release.
This will be the second brick-and-mortar location for Honeysuckle Gelato partners Wes Jones, Jackson Smith and Khatera Ballard. The 1,200 square-foot space will serve gelato scoops and sandwiches and sorbet. The company, which donates 5 percent of profits to the Atlanta Community Food Bank, has an existing location at Ponce City Market as well as a food truck.

Pinewood's first announced restaurant tenant, Braise, from husband and wife chefs Tanya Jiminez and Michael Le, will serve a menu of dishes with European, New American, Asian and Southern influences.

Honeysuckle will also join Barleygarden Kitchen and Hop City Craft Beer and Wine, also set to open in 2019.

All culinary concepts will be located in Pinewood's 25-acre town center, which will also feature a hotel, other restaurants, independent retail shops and galleries, an office suite and a Piedmont Wellness Center.

Pinewood Forest, a master planned residential and mixed-use development is located in Fayette County, next to Pinewood Atlanta Studios. The development team includes Fayetteville native and Chick-fil-A CEO Dan T. Cathy.
