February 2: Prince’s Hot Chicken with André Prince Jeffries

André Prince Jeffries is a Nashville icon. Owner of Prince’s Hot Chicken, Prince Jeffries helped put Nashville Hot Chicken on the map. The great niece to the original founder, Thornton Prince, Prince Jeffries gained ownership of the restaurant in 1980. Prince’s attracted a steady clientele, but the world famous chicken remained insider knowledge, even within Nashville. The first Hot Chicken Festival in 2006 helped make the chicken, and Prince Jeffries, a massive hit.

Prince’s was named one of America’s Classics by the James Beard Foundation in 2013. Prince Jeffries has been awarded by the National Fried Chicken Festival, the Nashville Scene, and was inducted into the Entrepreneur’s Hall of Fame by the Nashville Entrepreneur Center last year.
