WE WERE A FAMILY FIRST

My Dad worked in the restaurant business his whole life, just like his Dad.

I learned from them how good food and genuine hospitality done right can bring people together. I saw how that inclusiveness—and the ability to make someone’s day a little better—motivated me, my family and our team.

Our goal from day one has been to offer authentic Nashville hot chicken served with a little style and a lot of hospitality in a fun, high-energy environment. We know communities, families and friends thrive on love, hospitality and great food. That’s why we’re in this.

OUR STORY

LONG BEFORE WE LIT HATTIE'S NAME UP IN NEON OVER A CHICKEN SHACK IN MIDTOWN NASHVILLE, WE WERE A FAMILY WITH DEEP ROOTS IN THE RESTAURANT BUSINESS.

In 2006, after a decades-long career in food and hospitality, Nick Bishop Sr. tried to retire. It didn’t take. The next year he opened Bishop’s Meat & 3, an old-school, cafeteria-style restaurant in Franklin, Tenn. Folks started showing up. Around that same time, Nick Jr. wanted a break from the music business in Nashville and joined his Dad behind the counter.

Soon after, father and son introduced hot chicken to the menu and began tinkering around with their own spice blend. More folks started showing up. By 2011, the Bishops were offering a variety of heat levels, and the idea for a hot chicken restaurant was born.

NOW ALL THEY NEEDED WAS A NAME

The next summer on August 9, 2012, Hattie B’s Hot Chicken made its debut, just off Broadway.

More than a decade later, with a dozen restaurants and hundreds of employees across fives states, we still feel like we’re at the beginning of our story.

OUR HOMETOWN

NASHVILLE IS THE REASON

We get to rep the city everywhere we go, and we take that seriously. It's why we don't franchise.

We only grow when we know we can deliver the standard Nashville expects and deserves from us.

THE CREW

THE FAM

WE WERE A FAMILY FIRST

And as a family-owned company, we hold Hattie B’s to those same values of love, support, respect and loyalty. We share in each other’s successes and pick each other up when things go sideways. No matter how you slice it, we’re all about family, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

THE FOOD

WHY WE'RE ALL HERE

Plump, juicy birds flavored down to the bone no matter your heat level.
Southern sides scratch-made daily.
Ice-cold beer from your favorite local breweries.
