Polias Development Brings Fast Casual Fresh Mex to Baxter St.

July 25, 2022 — Athens, GA — Polias Management announces the grand opening of Georgia-based restaurant chain, Surcheros Fresh Mex, at 700 Baxter St. Ste.100. The fresh fast casual brand will open their doors on August 1. An official ribbon cutting will be held at 10 a.m., and will open to the public at 10:30. The first 100 paying guests will receive Surcheros’ ‘Free Food Every Month for a Year’ giveaway. Grand opening giveaways will continue throughout the week.

Featuring a “Fresh Mex” menu, Surcheros offers crowd pleasers such as burritos, tacos, nachos, quesadillas, salads, and burrito bowls. Since 2017, the brand has grown from one to 24 locations. This is the first Athens-area location.

“We are honored to bring Surcheros to Athens,” said David Mulkey, founder of Polias. “We are confident the community will love the food and atmosphere they offer and look forward to supporting them here in the Classic City.”

Surcheros joins Push Pilates, Slutty Vegan, Newk’s Eatery, Choco Pronto Coffee, Wild Side Smoke Shop, and University Spirit in the recently renovated Seven Hundred Baxter development.

Formerly a nondescript retail strip center, Seven Hundred Baxter recently underwent a major renovation and received the Historic Athens Preservation Award in the category of Outstanding Revitalization. The project lies seconds away from the intersection of Baxter and Milledge in the heart of Athens and features a modern facade, updated spaces, outdoor seating, and new walkways.
