Coca-Cola Freestyle coming to Five Guys

ATLANTA -- Five Guys has become the largest restaurant chain to sign up for the Coca-Cola Freestyle dispenser system.

The burger chain will begin installing two Coca-Cola Freestyle fountains in all company-owned restaurant locations across the country next month.

Five Guys has about 875 restaurants across the United States and Canada. It began testing Coke's Freestyle system in the Atlanta market, home to 24 of its restaurant locations, in 2010.

ADOPT A PET: Meet Noah

ADOPT A PET: Meet Noah

 

ATLANTA - If you dream of coming home to a wet nose, wagging tail and tons of kisses (in addition to, perhaps, a half-chewed shoe or an overturned trashcan) adopt a puppy from your local Humane Society. According to the ASPCA, approximately 5 million to 7 million domesticated animals enter animal shelters nationwide, every year, and approximately 3 million to 4 million are euthanized. However, you can change those numbers by adopting a "companion" for yourself or for your family. Pets are an investment but, in our opinion, an investment well worth the money.

According to the Atlanta Humane Society, Noah is a sweet, young and playful puppy. Noah is almost a year old, he’s a Labrador retriever mix. Noah will be happiest in a home without young children and he needs lots of attention. This dog will benefit from obedience training and socialization with other dogs and people; perhaps at a park or a play date.
