Built Environment: The Varsity


The Varsity in Atlanta is one of Georgia’s premier tourist attractions. The picture displayed above is from one of the many entrances from the Varsity, this one being from the spring Street side. As you walk in you are greeted with red and white colors and a retro older feeling with a great upbeat vibe. Straight ahead is the menu and workers loudly yelling “what’ll ya have?” with a very energetic feel to it. It’s very upbeat and much like the articles previously read, a good home feel to it. The feeling of being wanted by some many employees just to take YOUR order makes you feel at home and very important in a fast food environment


The image displayed above, shows a brief wall of history, dating back to the grand opening in 1928. This wall of history is significant because it shows the meaning and tradition behind the food and traditions of the restaurant. Although the food is not the greatest, the history and great customer service is what continues to bring thousands of customers daily. The sign also proceeds to discuss the amount of food and ingredients used daily to inform customers and guests (for a more “homey” feel) the process it takes each and every day to satisfy their wants and needs.
