Thursday, January 25, 2018

Jim ‘N Nick’s Bar-B-Q, a brand with a 32-year history built on madefrom-scratch cooking and genuine Southern hospitality, announced today it will be joining a unique collection of local and regional brands at The Shoppes at Hamilton Place, a retail complex in Chattanooga, that features more than 200 specialty shops. Construction is to begin this week with a grand opening set for the fall.

Founded in 1985 by father-son duo Jim and Nick Pihakis in Birmingham, Jim ‘N Nick’s specializes in barbecuing and smoking meat “low and slow”, with offerings ranging from beef, chicken, pork and turkey, and is popularly known for their world-famous cheese biscuits. The menu features traditional Southern favorites, freshly prepared using high-quality, locally-sourced ingredients.

“There’s already such a great group of existing businesses at Hamilton Place,” said Brian Lyman, president of Jim ‘N Nicks Bar-B-Q. “We’re honored to join the property and provide high-quality barbecue and authentic Southern cuisine to the area.”

Today, with 39 restaurants in seven states, Jim ‘N Nick’s Bar-B-Q has become a Southern institution and is excited to expand their presence in Tennessee. With community as the foundation for the brand and at the heart of everything they do, the Jim ‘N Nick’s team is committed to building deep and lasting relationships with the Chattanooga community and believes that the people served are just as important as the food.

“This opening marks our sixth restaurant in Tennessee,” said Mr. Lyman. “And we can’t wait to start building a community of strong ties and relationships in Chattanooga.”
