Friends American Grill, members of the Gwinnett County Chamber of Commerce since 2013, is a neighborhood grill and bar with 5 locations. It was founded in 2010 by Suzanne Cartwright and Ray Stanjevich. Gwinnett County is represented in Dacula, Suwanee and Buford, with additional restaurants in Dawsonville and Winder. Plans are also under way to open Friends restaurants in Canton and Bethlehem.

Supporting our community is part of the fiber of Friends. In addition to numerous charity and fundraiser events, Friends sponsors its Ansley’s Easter fundraiser every Easter Sunday to help a family with a cancer stricken child. All proceeds from our 5th year will lend a hand to the family of 3 year old Peyton Greene. And this year on March 30th, Friends will donate all sales to the North Gwinnett Food Co-op.
