Atlanta, GA – Governor Brian P. Kemp today announced that fresh-prepared meal delivery service Freshly Inc. is investing $3.2 million in opening a distribution facility in Austell. The company will bring on 150 employees during the initial operating phase and plans to hire at least 250 at the Cobb facility by the end of 2021. The 134,000-square-foot facility will be Freshly’s largest dedicated order-assembly facility to date and will begin operating in mid-February.

“It’s a pleasure to welcome this rapidly growing meal delivery service brand to the Peach State,” said Governor Kemp. “Our robust logistics infrastructure and highly skilled workforce have been critical to attracting new jobs and opportunities, which continue to put hardworking Georgians back to work.”

We are thrilled to continue in 2021 by expanding operations in the Southeast and have plans to add even more facilities this year that will help further our mission of delivering nutritious and convenient meals.”

Director Hank Evans represented the Georgia Department of Economic Development’s (GDEcD) Global Commerce division on this competitive project in partnership with Select Cobb and Electric Cities of Georgia.

“Americans have changed the way they purchase their food, and our state’s logistics network has helped make it seamless for companies to adapt and ramp up their services to meet customers’ evolving needs,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “I look forward to Georgia being a part of Freshly’s long-term success and am grateful to all of our economic development partners involved in creating these jobs in our state.”

AUSTELL, Ga. - Some FedEx Customers report they are fed up with the shipping delays from the carrier.

Many of the issues stem from a major shipping facility located in Austell.

Business owner Robert Tuck is waiting on two packages to be delivered by FedEx.

"They look in the system and they see the same information you have and maybe a little more then they are not helpful after that," Tuck said.

According to tracking information, there seems to be a misleading trend.

"Time after time they say it’s on the truck for delivery but it never actually got on the truck for delivery," Tuck said.

According to tracking information, one of Tuck’s items was shipped on June 21.

It arrived at the Austell Facility early morning on June 25 and an hour later was reported to have been on a truck for delivery for the day.

Two days later on June 28 the package was reported back at the facility and reloaded onto another truck for delivery.

It was the same story on July 2, 7, and 8 which was the last update Tuck has gotten for package one.

Tuck has a similar experience with his second package.

Tuck believes none of the packages ever made it onto a truck.

"They suggest going to the facility to pick up your stuff but if it’s lost then how is me going to the facility going to find it," Tuck said.

Nearly 2,000 people have signed an online petition citing issues with the carrier and specifically that facility.

"I hope they understand FedEx at one point stood for one of the most reliable package services on the planet. It was the model for everyone to go to," Tuck said.

FedEx officials released a statement acknowledging issues at the facility and claim they are working to hire more staff and drivers.

Read the full statement below:

"FedEx Ground continues to experience a peak-like surge in package volume due to the explosive growth of e-commerce. Contingency plans designed to restore service levels in the Austell area are being implemented, including increasing sortation capacity and securing additional package handlers and delivery resources. We sincerely regret any inconvenience caused by delays and appreciate our customers’ patience as contingency plans take effect. As always, we encourage customers who have concerns about lost or damaged packages to contact the shipper to begin the claims process. Customers may also track their package or contact customer service by clicking here."

A new exotic dancewear store in south Cobb County has drawn pushback from at least one of its neighbors. And Cobb County has cited the Austell boutique for operating without a business license.

The shop’s owners say they have no intentions to be bad neighbors.

Black Candy is the newest tenant in the Flags Village Shopping Center in unincorporated Austell, 366 Riverside Parkway. The store specializes in racy attire, selling an assortment of customized thongs, bikinis, stilettos and lingerie.

It sits just across the road from the Premier Preschool and Childcare. That’s too close for comfort for Monica DeLancy, who lives just a half mile away from the new storefront.

DeLancy admits she thought Black Candy was a dance studio the first time she drove past the new shop. But a banner that hung outside advertising “Erotic Dancewear” quickly gave her qualm.

“Somebody’s got to say something because of the kids around here,” DeLancy said. “I want a real family-friendly community. If I was a child that lived in the community and I looked up 10 years from now, it’s on record that somebody asked questions.”

DeLancy took to Facebook on May 31 to express her misgivings about the number of liquor stores that have sprouted up in the area. She shared a picture of Black Candy with its banner prominently displayed and noted that it sat next to a day care. Nearly 200 people commented on the thread.

County officials took notice as well. Black Candy was cited Wednesday for operating without a business license and storing alcoholic beverages on unlicensed premises, Cobb County spokesman Ross Cavitt told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Friday.

Cobb County code enforcement officers and business inspectors first visited Black Candy on June 1, spurred by multiple citizen complaints. The county gave the store 10 days to obtain its business license.

The shop hadn’t obtained its license by Wednesday, when Code Enforcement and the Fire Marshal conducted a sweep on businesses in the Flags Village strip mall, Cavitt said.

George “Horseman” Durham, founder of the Black Candy franchise, told the AJC he’s in the process of getting the required license.

The store held a soft opening over Memorial Day weekend. Durham said he’s gearing up to stage an official grand opening next month after he obtains his business license.

A court date for the code enforcement citations is scheduled for July 29.

Durham said he when he got word about the DeLancy’s reservations, he removed the original sign and replaced it with a more conservative banner that read “Custom Dancewear.”

“I’m glad she brought her concerns to our attention,” Durham said. “Soon as I found out about it, I took care of it. ... To make it good and let people know that we’re with the community and we ain’t trying to cause no conflict. It’s just good business.”

DeLancy credited the owner for quickly changing the sign and said it was a big step in showing that the store’s willing to be “community friendly.”

“It’s just clothes. Nothing but clothes,” he insisted of Black Candy. “People have in their heads and think maybe it’s a sex store with (sex toys) and all kinds of crazy crap. But we don’t do nothing like that here.”

Cobb County has had issues with erotic clothing stores in the past. Tokyo Valentino’s is a “sex shop” with a footprint throughout the Metro Atlanta region. Marietta and Cobb County officials revoked the business licenses for two Tokyo Valentino’s locations last year. Both boards ruled the stores had too much sexually oriented merchandise on its shelves.

Tokyo Valentino’s owners appealed both decisions and the two locations continue to operate while litigation plays out in court.

27 children rescued from Cobb day care after flash flooding

Nearly 30 children were evacuated from a flooded Cobb County day care on Thursday afternoon as heavy rain fell across metro Atlanta.

Cobb firefighters had to wade through knee-deep water as crews rescued 27 children and four adults from the Always Kids Child Care Center in Austell, officials said. The day care is located in the 1300 block of Anderson Road, a low-lying area prone to flooding after heavy storms.

A Cobb fire spokesman said the day care was “overcome with swift-moving floodwaters” after rain moved through the area about 4:30 p.m. Video posted to the department’s Twitter showed rainwater had filled the day care’s parking lot, rising above the tires of several vehicles parked outside.

A nearby drainage area was overwhelmed as a result of the storm, filling the parking lot and sending rainwater gushing through the day care facility, officials said.

“There were areas where the water was waist-deep for our rescuers,” Cobb fire spokesman Nicholas Danz told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “For a preschooler, that’s over their head.”

Employees were unable to get out of the building because the pressure from the rising water pinned the door shut, Danz said. Firefighters carried some children out of the building while others were loaded into an inflatable raft and pulled through the flooded parking lot.

The children were put on a school bus and taken to nearby Sanders Elementary School, where their parents picked them up.

“Luckily, there were no injuries and everyone got out safe,” Danz said.

There were reports of several downed trees across Atlanta and DeKalb County on Thursday afternoon, and one driver had to be rescued from their vehicle after driving into high water on Northside Drive, Channel 2 Action News reported.

The heavy rain has cleared out of metro Atlanta, but flooding remains, Channel 2 meteorologist Brad Nitz said.

— Brad Nitz (@BradNitzWSB) August 19, 2021

“The ground was already so saturated,” Nitz said. “Rivers, streams and creeks were up because of the heavy rain that we had from Tropical Depression Fred. You add onto that these very heavy downpours, and that’s what led to that flash flooding.”

Cobb fire officials are urging drivers in Austell to avoid the area between Anderson Mill Road between Austell Road and Brookwood Drive. When encountering a flooded road, Danz said it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

“Don’t try to cross roadways that are flooded,” he said. “If you can’t see the bottom of the water and you’re not sure how deep it is, it’s best to go around.”
