Acworth's The Fountain is great 'round the clock
Sera and Jason Speegle worked in the restaurant industry for two decades.But in July 2021 they opened The Fountain on Acworth's Main Street and fulfilled a longtime dream for a business of their own.
What's happening: After first offering just evening cocktails, The Fountain recently added a morning shift with coffee and pastries to their repertoire.
Details: The cafe hosts live music every Saturday and stand-up comedy twice a month.
The big picture: Sera said their target audience is the "younger and different demographic" coming to Acworth these days. She says they love the area for its parks, its non-motorized lake and the fact that you're likely to hear multiple languages spoken on a daily basis.
Of note: After their careers in the craft cocktail industry, the Speegles' goal with The Fountain, Sera tells Axios, was not to be "so stuffy."
- "We were really sick of it having to be like you have to pronounce a certain type of word, a certain type of beer to be cool," she said.
- "If you want to order a Bud Light, order a Bud Light. But if you want a unique craft cocktail we're happy to do that too."
Emma's thought bubble: The cookies were delicious. And that gorgeous skylight! Sera said it's original to the building.
