Cobb woman will be smiling at drivers on busy Atlanta road for 2 weeks


If you’re driving around Ponce City Market these next couple weeks, you might see a familiar face.

After winning a contest, Alexis Louder’s smile will be displayed on a billboard above the Green’s Beverages on Ponce De Leon Avenue, across from Gusto — the fast-casual restaurant that selected Louder and one other person.

Gusto announced Tuesday that Louder and John Harris Britton, a Midtown resident, will each have their faces displayed on the billboard for two weeks of January as part of the promotion.

Nathan Hybl, former NFL quarterback and Gusto founder, started the contest in October.

Applicants could have entered at either the Peachtree Road or Ponce locations of Gusto or by tagging three friends on any Gusto Facebook or Instagram post.

Louder will be featured first, followed by Britton two weeks later.
