Nu-Way making it’s way into Mercer Village

Justin Baxley, Sports Editor

Nu-way, an old Macon favorite, finds a new home in the Mercer Village as first reported by The Telegraph. The famous hot dog chain is moving into the space currently occupied by Fountain of Juice.

Fountain of Juice will close for good over the upcoming Thanksgiving break. The restaurant opened in July of 2011 in the Village and has another location that will remain open in Macon at 4123 Forsyth Road.

Nu-Way will begin the build out of the Fountain of Juice space in December with an opening currently slated for late February or early March.

Nu-Way Weiners first opened in Macon in 1916 at the Cotton Avenue location which burned down in a fire in March. The opening of the location in the Mercer Village will not effect plants to rebuild the Cotton Avenue location.

Nu-Way is the second oldest hot dog chain in America and will have 10 locations throughout Central Georgia when the Mercer Village location opens its doors.

More announcements regarding the change will be released next week.
