(Cumming, GA) Cumming’s version of ‘Main Street Americana’ has just a few spots left for businesses to call home.

“We do have two restaurant spaces and six office spaces available at this time,” said Cumming City Center Property Manager Jennifer Archer.

The Cumming City Center, located on 75 acres between Canton Highway and Sawnee Drive to the west of downtown, is the vision of Mayor Troy Brumbalow to bring back the main street appeal to Forsyth County families.

The project started sprouting from the ground in 2019 and will see restaurants open during the late spring and summer.

The development features 117,000 sq. ft. of retail space, new police and municipal court buildings, pocket parks, a putting golf course, amphitheater, and a trail and boardwalk system.

One of the unique restaurants coming to the City Center has an interesting name: Vampire Penguin.

The dessert shop offers a frozen experience without snow cones or shaved ice. Instead, the company says treats are created from a fruit base, frozen in cylindrical molds, and then shaved into tiny, fluffy ribbons with the consistency of freshly fallen snow. Customers choose from a rotating selection of snow flavors, top with the shop’s wide variety of garnishes, and enjoy the snow treat served on a frosty plate.

“It might be hard to build a snowman in Cumming, but anyone can easily build a snow treat at Vampire Penguin,” said local owner Jarrod Willis. “We have the perfect space at the Cumming City Center and can’t wait to bring this fantastic treat to our hometown!”

When the last restaurants and shops are announced for the City Center, Mayor Troy Brumbalow said they each will get a unique welcome.

“They will be announced individually,” Brumbalow said. “Everyone deserves their day in their sun.”
