Famous Nashville Hot Chicken Restaurant Files For Bankruptcy

The well-known chain of hot chicken restaurants in Nashville, Party Fowl, has declared Chapter 11 bankruptcy. 

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

This choice was made in light of the company's growth throughout Tennessee and beyond, as well as the financial strain that Covid-19 placed on these new sites. 

In 2014, Austin Smith and Nick Jacobson opened Party Fowl, a restaurant located in the Gulch.  

According to Party Fowl's official website, they opened this place with the intention of "bringing together the best of Nashville under one roof by combining great food, great drinks, and a great experience."  

They have added six LLCs to their company since then, and they currently oversee about 225 employees. 

The court filings also stated that Smith and Jacobson chose to venture outside of Nashville by establishing sister companies in Chattanooga, TN, and Destiny, FL, following the 2020 opening of a location in Cool Springs, TN.  

Regretfully, those two locations have had trouble making enough money. Party Fowl's hot chicken is also available at licensed outlets at Nissan Stadium and Nashville International Airport, as well as in Donelson and Murfreesboro.
