College Park-based barbecue joint Hattie Marie’s has already gained national recognition by having social media influencers, politicians, socialites, and entertainers walk through their doors, indulge in their comfort food and document their entire experiences on all social media platforms. And now the brand is planning to open three new franchises in Metro Georgia. The Atlanta Voice sat down with owner Will Griggie, who founded the restaurant six years ago, in memory of his late-mother Hattie Marie Griggie, who succumbed to complications from cancer. Griggie’s slow-smoked meats and Cajun-inspired sides were the childhood recipes from his parents he grew up loving in Port Arthur, Texas.
