A dozen years ago, Atlanta Bread Co. was among the nationâ€™s fastest-growing franchises, with plans to double its stores almost as fast as you can munch one of its ABC Special sandwiches.
By 2004, the Smyrna-based deli and bakery chain had tripled in size, to 164 shops spanning much of the nation.

The loans totaled $32.8 million, with the federal government losing $5 million.
