Atlanta-based Tin Drum Asiacafé continues its southeastern expansion with its newest franchised location opening — and its first Roswell, Ga., location —in Roswell Market Place shopping center at 10800 Alpharetta Highway. The newest 50-seat restaurant unit, slated to open April 15, will offer free Tin Drum fare for a year for the first 50 customers from 11 a.m. to noon and again from 5 to 6 p.m.
Celebrating throughout the week of April 15-21, the Tin Drum Asiacafe welcomes the Roswell community with week-long events including Taco Tuesday (April 16), Rock and Spring Roll Thursday (April 18), Stir Fry Friday (April 19) and Family Fun Day on Saturday (April 20).
Opening week proceeds benefit community
Tin Drum is giving back to the community with a focus on school and church-based organizations in sports, music and the arts. The Roswell location will donate 15 percent of proceeds to the Roswell High School band on April 17 and to Childspring International on April 21, according to a company press release. Childspring International is an Atlanta-based charity that provides medical care for children unable to obtain treatment on their own.
The Roswell Tin Drum, the 13th location for the brand, will be operated by Different Drum Inc. with Jeffrey Sitterley as the general manager and will employ about 25 people.
The Pan Asian chain, which recently announced a new franchised location in Athens, Ga., in Beechwood Shopping Center at 196 Alps Road, is actively pursuing franchisees in the southern states of Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Florida and the Carolinas.
