About Mrs. Winner's Chicken & Biscuits

Mrs. Winner’s Chicken & Biscuits is a legacy Southern quick service restaurant chain that prides itself on serving authentic Southern chicken and home-style menu items. Founded in 1979 by Jack C. Massey, a QSR empire builder, Mrs. Winner’s distinctive menu includes home-style fried chicken, made-from-scratch biscuits, savory cinnamon swirls and a selection of hearty side items. There are currently 13 locations throughout Georgia, North Carolina and Tennessee.

Company History

Founded in 1979, Mrs. Winner’s was once a staple in the QSR fried chicken and biscuits market and a tradition in the homes of many Southern families. During the brand’s early years, Mrs. Winner’s surged to 184 restaurants throughout the Southeast and became known for its authentic Southern fried chicken, made-from-scratch biscuits and hot frosted cinnamon swirls.

After struggling through multiple ownership transactions and financial missteps, Mrs. Winner’s closed all of its company-owned stores and filed for bankruptcy in 2010, leaving only a handful of restaurants open. In 2012, current President John Buttolph acquired the rights to the company and is spearheading the revitalization after recognizing that Mrs. Winner’s is a brand worth saving. There are currently 12 locations throughout Georgia, Tennessee and North Carolina, and the brand is actively seeking qualified franchise partners in metropolitan Atlanta, Nashville, Memphis, Birmingham, Chattanooga and other territories throughout Northern Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, North and South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Kentucky and Virginia.
