Chris Sedgwick and Michele Sedgwick, long time Alpharetta residents and successful Atlanta restaurateurs, were looking for a new way to express their style and their love of food. They found the inspiration they were seeking with their take on an authentic Mexican taqueria. Hip, loud, sophisticated and fun, PURE taqueriaTM has been serving up inspired cuisine and margaritas that pack a wallop since its 2005 opening in Atlanta, Georgia!The original PURE taqueriaSM opened in Alpharetta, Georgia at the site of an abandoned 1920’s era Pure Fuel Oil station. The small stone building on the corner (now used for storage) was part of the original gas station, but the main restaurant was built from scratch, with Chris and Michele designing, decorating and doing much of the construction themselves. Since 2005, PURE taqueriaTM has grown into a local institution, and a successful franchise company with locations in Georgia and now, Matthews, North Carolina.
