Hattie B’s was founded in 2012 by Nick Bishop Sr. and Nick Bishop Jr. The company is named after three family members who were all named Hattie.
The company sells spicy fried chicken with different levels of spiciness being offered, along with side dishes such as coleslaw, French fries, baked beans, and Southern green beans. Desserts include banana pudding, hot chocolate chip cookies, and fruit cobbler.
Hattie B’s Hot Chicken now has 8 locations, with the most recent being opened inside the Cosmopolitan Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, in 2018. and in downtown Chicago in late 2019.
The company is planning on opening a location somewhere in Texas in late 2020 but the actual city has yet to be announced.
During the coronavirus crisis in the early part of 2020, many restaurants had difficulties but Hattie B’s simply changed their business plan and offered free delivery service, which appears to be keeping the company afloat.
Hattie B’s Hot Chicken is privately owned and maintains its corporate office in Nashville, Tennessee.
