High-Profile Sporting Events Set To Provide Atlanta Businesses A Boost, Even As Virus Cases Rise

ESPN’s popular College GameDay program is in town Saturday morning for a live broadcast outside Georgia State’s football facility, Center Parc Stadium. The three-hour show will give a national audience a glimpse at the ever-evolving Summerhill neighborhood.

“Atlanta is used to be on the national stage, but it’s incredibly exciting to see that Georgia State gets its chance to shine,” said Scott Taylor, president and CEO of Carter, the company that’s working to develop the Summerhill neighborhood.

He says in addition to national exposure, he says it could give a boost to neighborhood restaurants.

“We hope folks will come down and check it out,” said Taylor. “We think it’s an exciting opportunity for all the businesses in Summerhill and those along Georgia Avenue.”
