Radial Cafe is no more.

The company announced on Thursday, June 7, that it was closing its College Park and Candler Park locations.

In a statement, Frank Bragg, the restaurant’s owner said the closure of the College Park location made the closure of the Candler Park location necessary.

“Closing College Park was supposed to help us keep Candler Park open,” Bragg wrote. “For many months, we have “borrowed from Peter to pay Paul” to keep both properties afloat, but Candler Park’s success was based on a plan with razor thin margins and less than a week after closing College Park, it was obvious that Candler Park had to be closed as well.”

Bragg purchased the Candler Park location in 2010.

“For over 19 years, the Radial Cafe brand has existed in the Atlanta market,” Bragg said. :It was always been a great example of the ‘little engine that could.’  Despite its small size, it had a big place in the hearts of many people in our community. When I bought the Candler Park restaurant in 2010, I was aware of the enormous responsibility I had to protect this brand and to grow it responsibly. I am sure you can imagine, but I can’t tell you how sad this day is for me.”
