ATLANTA -- Atlanta-based Tin Drum Asia Café plans to open six new restaurants this year and eight more in the coming years, the chain announced Tuesday.
The very first Tin Drum opened at Georgia Tech, alma mater of founder Steven Chan. Since then, it has spread to locations throughout metro Atlanta, including Atlantic Station, Buckhead, Cumming, Dunwoody and Georgia State University.
Brand new Tin Drum locations include Augusta, Chastain Park, Emory Village and the chain's first restaurant outside Georgia -- Birmingham, Ala.
More locations slated to open later this year include Athens, Roswell and Midtown's Colony Square.
"Our plan is to double the size of Tin Drum in 2012 with additional units throughout Atlanta and in Athens, Augusta, Birmingham and throughout the Southeast," Chan said in a statement.
