Restaurant Round Up

Knuckies Gourmet Hoagies recently opened in the Crabapple section of Milton and has a second location coming soon to Canton. They are a gourmet hoagie shop slicing all-natural premium deli meats and cheeses daily along with hand crafted salads & soups.

They plan to open inside the Airborne Canton Aerial Adventure Park at 500 Brown Industrial Parkway in Canton. The owner of Knuckies, Todd Broaderick, also owns Purpose Snackery, which is already operating inside the Park. Knuckies will be added to the restaurant mix.

According to their shop, a knuckie is:

The oncoming fist emoji to greet a friend instead of saying hello or goodbye; congratulate someone on a job well done; to celebrate a brand this is eco-friendly; or to acknowledge a fantastic hand crafted hoagie, salad, soup or dessert.

Visit them at 12630 Crabapple Rd Suite 100 Milton, Georgia 30004 and coming soon to Airborne Aerial Adventure Park. Online ordering available and delivery through UberEats, Doordash, & Postmates. The first page of  Knuckies Gourmet Hoagie menu is below.

According to Ronnie Boyles, who is the director of operations, part owner, as well as construction project manager, the estimated date for the location on the Canton (Macedonia area) at 8023 Cumming Hwy Suite 102 is 8/28.  The Canton/Sixes Road location is slated for the end of September/early October.
