Beautiful Business of the Year

Big City Bread May 2021

Established in 1993, the Beautiful Business of the Month program recognizes local businesses that improve the appearance of the community through landscaping and beautification efforts. Each month, the KACCB Board of Directors selects a local business as the Beautiful Business of the Month and at the end of the calendar year, the Board votes from the pool of monthly winners to select the Beautiful Business of the Year. 

The KACCB Board of Directors selected Big City Bread as the Beautiful Business of the Month back in May of 2021, citing their beautiful, perfectly shaded, and well-maintained outdoor patio. Property owners Carl and Carol Martin designed the outdoor space when they first purchased the building, and Big City Bread has been the proud occupant for 17! We believe that most local Athenians would agree that the clean, spacious, community-oriented, and beautifully landscaped patio at Big City Bread is a special place in our community. Please give a special round of applause for Deenan and Mathew Scott of Big City Bread as the Keep Athens-Clarke County Beautiful 2021 Beautiful Business of the Year!
