Sawicki's Meat, Seafood and More, located at 250 W. Ponce de Leon in Decatur , closed its doors Feb. 14 after nearly 10 years in business.

The restaurant served prepared take-away foods as well as sandwiches and baked goods.

"A business must make a consistent profit to continue and although we have had many good months in our nine years, too many unprofitable months have prevailed recently," owner Lynn Sawicki said in a statement via email. "The increases in the cost of doing business are more than our scale in Decatur can support.

"Although I believe in the viability of downtown Decatur, it is an expensive place to do business.  I will miss my devoted employees, my store and my wonderful regular customers."

Sawicki, who previously worked with Anne Quatrano at Bacchanalia , Floataway Café and Star Provisions, said she is already looking forward to her next move.

“I’m on the lookout for an executive chef position and I’m so glad Atlanta is a true foodie town with so many great restaurants and opportunities.”
