Nashville's Hot Chicken Files Bankruptcy

Party Fowl, a well-known hot chicken restaurant franchise in Nashville, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. 

According to court documents filed with the court, the proprietors filed a petition for bankruptcy protection in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Tennessee on January 9. 

The company's expansion throughout Tennessee and beyond, along with the financial burden that Covid-19 placed on these new locations, all played a role in this decision. 

2014 saw the opening of Party Fowl, a restaurant in the Gulch by Austin Smith and Nick Jacobson. 

Party Fowl created this location with the goal of "bringing together the best of Nashville under one roof by combining great food, great drinks, and a great experience," according to their official website. 

Since then, they have grown their business to include six LLCs, and they currently manage over 225 workers.

In addition, according to the court documents, Smith and Jacobson decided to branch out of Nashville by founding sister firms in Chattanooga, TN, and Destiny, FL, after a site in Cool Springs, TN opened in 2020. 

Sadly, those two locations have struggled to turn a profit. Party Fowl's hot chicken may also be found at authorized locations in Donelson, Murfreesboro, Nissan Stadium, and Nashville International Airport.
