Besides fronting his Grammy Award–winning eponymous band, Zac Brown is in the wine and restaurant businesses. His latest project, Zac Brown’s Social Club, a Southern restaurant and adjoining quick-service concession stand, will open in Philips Arena this year. But the real reason we’re watching him closely? Remedy Bakeshop, a line of gluten-free and allergen-friendly baked goods he’s developing with the help of Atlanta’s H&F Bread Co. and chemist Dr. Nicole Crane. (The chocolate chip cookies are especially good.) Part of the proceeds will go to Camp Southern Ground, Brown’s not-for-profit, 450-acre campground for military vets as well as children with autism and learning disabilities. It will open in Peachtree City this summer.
