Fast-casual chicken restaurant Waldo’s Chicken and Beer opens today, Feb. 8 at 1201 Liberty Pike in Franklin, confirmed Kyle Pilcher, Managing Partner for Waldo’s Chicken.

The restaurant focuses on fried and fire-roasted chicken. This location will offer a drive-thru window for takeaway meals for the family or a quick lunch. The menu consists of chicken on the bone, chicken on a bun, in a bowl or basket. The Franklin location will also offer a rotisserie chicken option. Side items include mac n cheese, white beans, potato wedges, collard greens, and side salads.

Waldo’s Chicken and Beer is a Fresh Hospitality concept. At the Liberty Pike location, Fresh has two other concepts Athenian Nail Spa and Vui’s Kitchen.

Other Fresh Hospitality brands include Biscuit Love, The Grilled Cheeserie, Martin’s BBQ, Juice Bar, and more. Unlike the company’s other brands in which Fresh Hospitality partnered with the restaurant’s founders, Waldo’s Chicken and Beer was created in-house.

Hours of operation are Sunday – Thursday, 11 am – 9 pm, Friday – Saturday, 11 am – 10 pm.

The first Waldo’s opened in the Germantown neighborhood of Nashville in May 2019.
