5 Anticipated New Albany Area Business Openings In 2024

- UPDATED

New business plans in the Albany area were abundant in 2023. Now into the new year, we get to witness the progress and completion of these projects. And, while not an all-inclusive list, here are five anticipated new business openings set for 2024.

Here’s the list:

Crumbl Cookies

Crumbl Cookies in Albany, GA is a sweets store that’s been under construction since Q3 2023. The franchise is popular across the US with hundreds of locations. Georgia has more than 30.

Each shop offers a wide variety of fresh-baked cookie choices and the company delivers more than 170 unique flavors.

Crumbl Cookies in Albany is located in the Albany Square Shopping Center along Dawson Rd, on the Hobby Lobby side next to the T-Mobile store. An official opening date has not been set.

Grand Island Park

Grand Island Park is the Albany area’s largest recreational project in years, and is set to be a combination of games, sports, and family fun. Located on part of the former Grand Island Golf Course property, the project will have plenty of space.

All those acres will be needed as Grand Island Park said guests can expect a new indoor skating rink, 12 pickleball courts, a patio area with food and refreshments, and a gamified golf driving range with a restaurant, delivering a ‘Top Golf’ like experience.

While no opening date is set, the owners tell 229 Life that Grand Island Park will open its doors in 2024.

Jack’s Family Restaurant

TCBY & 3 Squares Diner

TCBY and 3 Squares Diner in Albany, GA are set to be the newest additions to Northwest Albany.

TCBY needs no introduction as the frozen yogurt chain has been popular across the US for decades. 3 Squares Diner is a little closer to home as the homegrown chain of breakfast, lunch, and dinner diners across South Georgia.

Located in between Los Vaqueros and Locos Grill and Pub, TCBY and 3 Squares Diner will occupy their own spaces in one new building. The location is still under construction but is expected to open later in 2024.
