Parker’s opened its fifth retail store in Pooler, Georgia, near Savannah, on May 2. The new location is at the corner of Highway 80 and Pine Barren Road.
The new Pooler location sits on 9.2 acres at the high-traffic corner. It includes a Parker’s Kitchen with ordering kiosks and seating for up to 20 customers. Parker’s Kitchen serves fresh, never-frozen, hormone and antibiotic-free chicken tenders, mac ‘n’ cheese, breakfast biscuits and other Southern specialties. All items are prepared fresh on-site by Parker’s team members and can be enjoyed on site or to-go.
“Our award-winning Southern-inspired food—which is available for breakfast, lunch or dinner—is extremely popular with Pooler residents and is an ideal alternative to traditional fast food,” said Parker’s Founder and CEO Greg Parker. “We recently won the Convenience Foodservice Leader of the Year Award for our delicious menu of items made from scratch daily with fresh ingredients, like your grandmother would make.”
The 57th Parker’s location also features self-checkout technology, truck parking, 16 fueling positions offering three grades of unleaded gasoline, seven diesel fueling positions and marine fuel.
The new store is part of a larger strategy to expand Parker’s footprint from the company’s headquarters in Savannah, Georgia, to Charleston, South Carolina. The Pooler Parker’s is strategically located near the entrance to the Georgia Ports Authority and the growing population base in Pooler.
“At Parker’s, we like to be in the path of growth, and the growth in Pooler has been tremendous,” said Parker. “We’re thrilled to expand our presence in Pooler as we continue to meet customer demand in west Chatham County.”
