A new breakfast joint will open in Franklin later this year.

Big Bad Breakfast, a Fresh Hospitality concept, will open later this year, confirmed Mark Waldo, a Fresh Hospitality Operating Manager.

The breakfast to lunch spot has seven locations. Big Bad Breakfast opened a Nashville location on Charlotte Avenue at the end of 2019. An exact address for the Franklin restaurant has not been shared with us but we’re told it will be in south Franklin.

From the in-house cured bacon to the skillet meals, and the made fresh daily biscuits, you won’t leave this spot hungry.

About Big Bad Breakfast

Big Bad Breakfast began in Oxford, Mississippi by James Beard award-winning chef John Currence, who combines his New Orleans background with his Southern roots to make breakfast the most important meal of the day.

Currence was born and raised in New Orleans, where food is, “as much a part of life as air or water,” says John on the Big Bad Breakfast website.

Big Bad Breakfast is about more than offering great food choices to its patrons; it’s about giving people a taste of Currence’s childhood.

“But more than anything, I wanted to recapture the flavors of my childhood memory. Things don’t taste the same now with the degree of processing and preservatives/stabilizers added to food,” says Currence. “I wanted people to taste the flavors of my grandfather’s patty sausage and my great grandmother’s biscuits. So that’s exactly what we did,” he adds on the restaurant’s website.
