The company announced Wednesday that its corporate office called Restaurant Support Center will move to North Atlanta in early 2013.
Krystal's headquarters employs about 60 workers. The majority of the employees have the option to apply for new positions in the Atlanta office. Severance packages and job search assistance will be offered to those who don't relocate.
Initially, the company said the headquarters would remain in Chattanooga, despite the announcement in March of Krystal's sale to private investment firm Argonne Capital Group LLC for an undisclosed amount.
Atlanta-based Argonne owns a portfolio of restaurants.
The 80-year-old Krystal Co. owns and franchises a total of 360 restaurants in 11 southern states and has more than 6,000 employees.

Man pleads guilty to Memphis officer's murder
May 21, 2013 22:22 GMT
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A former death row inmate is set to be released from prison after he pleaded guilty to second-degree murder of a Memphis police officer.
Shelby County District Attorney Amy Weirich said Tuesday that she has accepted Timothy McKinney's guilty plea.
McKinney was convicted of first-degree murder for the fatal shooting of Officer Don Williams. The officer was killed outside a comedy club in December 1997.
McKinney appealed and won a new trial, which ended with a deadlocked jury. A third trial earlier this year also ended in a hung jury.
The Commercial Appeal reports that McKinney was sentenced to 15 years in prison. Since he's already served more than 15 years -- including 11 on death row -- McKinney will be released this week.
Williams' family opposed the settlement.
