Does Julie Chrisley Have A Restaurant?
For many years now, Julie and her husband Todd Chrisley have been talking about opening up a Southern-style restaurant. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and a few financial problems here and there, their plans were put on hold. However, it seems that these plans are now being set into motion.
In August of 2021, Todd announced that they were “about three weeks away from coming up with a location for the restaurant” and that it would be opening about half a year (7 months) after that.
In addition to the Tennessee restaurant Julie will be opening, the couple also plans on opening a champagne bar in either the Green Hills or Belle Meade areas of Nashville.
After initially declining an offer to open a drinking bar, Todd told Tennessean, “We were approached again, about an upscale champagne bar, bridal lunches, or brunches and I agreed to do that. If we’re going to participate in something, I want to participate in something classy, and you’re not out here bar fighting.”
In these new ventures, Julie will be wholly in charge of running the restaurant and will be responsible for “light food service” at the champagne bar. She said of her upcoming roles, “I’m excited for our next endeavors. The restaurant and food is so in my wheelhouse, I’m excited to get this going.”
