Those who have strolled by the vacant 1 W. Broughton St. in the past few weeks have seen the literal signs of progress: Toast! All Day decals affixed on the windows.
Sam Mustafa, CEO and founder of Charleston Hospitality Group (CHG), recently announced that this successful slice from the Charleston, South Carolina, will soon be on the table in the Hostess City.
“It made sense for us to figure out if there was a spot in Savannah,” said Mustafa in late July as we sat in what had been a Panera.
Last year, Mustafa reached out to Marian Smith of Strategic Commercial Real Estate who said that she had the “perfect spot” for him. He came down that same weekend, saw the special corner property, and was sold.
This was the only Savannah space Mustafa saw.
“It’s such a beautiful corner,” he said, looking out at the constant passersby, many of whom may well be future customers.
