Hattie B’s Hot Chicken Opens in Franklin Location

Shake your tail-feathers! Hattie B's Hot Chicken opens in Franklin on Wednesday, Nov. 15.

Hattie B’s Hot Chicken is bringing the heat to Williamson County with its first location in the area opening on Wednesday, Nov. 15 at The Factory of Franklin.

The fast-casual restaurant is located in Building 14 at The Factory (230 Franklin Rd., Franklin), adjacent to the Rusty the Metal Man statue on the Liberty Pike side of the building.

“Franklin is a special place for us. We opened our first restaurant, Bishop’s Meat & 3, in Cool Springs 16 years ago, so we know and love this community,” Nick Bishop, Jr., co-founder of Hattie B’s Hot Chicken, said. “We’re honored to now bring Hattie B’s to The Factory. We love the character and soul of the building.”

The Restaurant

The restaurant is 3,058 square feet, including the private 471-square-foot patio, with 77 seats in the dining room and 24 seats for patio dining. The bright, welcoming dining room has a few new interior features guests will not see at other Hattie B’s locations: accent wallpaper with waffles, hot chicken and hot chicken sandwiches and a mix of read and white tables, along with windows original to the space.

“Given its local history, Hattie B’s expansion into Williamson County also marks a return to its hometown roots. We’re thrilled Hattie B’s is coming home to The Factory and bringing its iconic hot chicken to a historic Franklin landmark,” Allen Arender, partner and senior vice president of development at Holladay Properties, said.

The Menu

The menu is the same as all Hattie B’s locations, featuring hot chicken — bone-in, tenders and a sandwich — served with varying levels of heat from Southern (no heat), mild, medium, hot, damn hot to the daredevil’s dream, Shut the Cluck Up. Scratch-made Southern sides and desserts, including guest favorites such as pimento mac-and-cheese and banana pudding, will also be served.

“Guests will experience the same delicious hot chicken, cold beers, and great tunes they’ve come to expect at Hattie B’s,” Bishop said.

Operating hours are Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. For more information, visit hattieb.com.
