Construction on Guy Fieri’s Chicken Guy! Restaurant Resumes in Nashville

by Katie Lee

Johnson City, Tenn. — FACE Hospitality, subsidiary of FACE Amusement Group, has resumed construction on its highly anticipated Chicken Guy! Restaurant in Nashville, Tenn. Located off Second Avenue and Commerce Street in downtown Nashville, the restaurant was one of several structures damaged in the explosion that shook Music City on Christmas Day 2020, bringing the project to a sudden halt. Construction has now resumed on the new franchise, which is slated to open this summer, continuing the one-of-a-kind partnership between FACE, famed chef, restaurateur and television personality Guy Fieri, and restaurateur Robert Earl.

“We’re grateful for the strength of the partnership between Guy Fieri, Robert Earl and FACE, which has proven stronger than all the changes and challenges we faced last year,” says Bucky Mabe, CEO of FACE. “We are eager to finish out this project and bring Guy’s unique bold tastes and flavors to downtown Nashville.”

“You can’t keep Nashville and 2nd Avenue down, and with Chicken Guy!, we’re proud to be gettin’ this party restarted,” says Fieri.

FACE owns and operates a growing collection of entertainment and culinary experiences in the Southeast, with nearly 30 attractions in Tennessee, South Carolina and Missouri. For more information, visit
