Local Entrepreneurs Blending with Global Brands

EAST WEST SHOPS is a Local-Global Hybrid Development

The EAST WEST SHOPS is located in South Cobb County at 1025 East West Connector, Austell, Georgia. The center features 85K square feet of neighborhood retail space. The center is owned and managed by Concorde Group Holdings. Local entrepreneurs, who call the center home, benefit from connectivity with global brands such a Starbucks. In late 2019, Starbucks committed to another 10-year lease with the center.

Café Blue is a country-chic female-owned restaurant, a favorite with the local community for their popular breakfast all-day menu. Owner and Operator Rogina Carter, age 44 mother of two, says this of following her passion, “Having worked in the restaurant business for over twenty years, I had a clear idea of what kind of environment I wanted to create,” she continues, “Café Blue is about spending time with family and friends, enjoying delicious food - plus, tons of delivery options for busy moms, like myself.”

Also, at EAST WEST SHOPS is Taps Bar and Grill which opened in late 2019. This family owned business offers a creative menu boasting 99 beers on tap. This pet-friendly community gathering place is locally famous for their trivia nights.

Joe LeBas, President, Managing Director and Founder, Concorde Group Holdings, LLC says this of his decision to blend local and global brands at EAST WEST SHOPS, “Matching a global powerhouse, like Starbucks, with a plaza full of locally owned businesses - encourages business for both sides.”
