With the uncertainty that has surrounded us recently, some amazing small business owners have stepped up to help our community in whatever way they can. We want to recognize their efforts!
Today’s Hero – Otter’s Chicken
Today we shine the spotlight on Otter’s Chicken, a local sports-themed restaurant specializing in all things chicken. Alongside most restaurants, Otter’s has taken a swing at new employee health practices like wearing face masks and frequently washing hands, and new order processes such as take-out orders, curbside delivery, or delivery through a service. In addition to these initiatives, they have kept their heart for the community by stepping up to the plate and supporting in a number of ways.
So far, they have prepared 600 meals through Operation Meal Plan, an initiative through the Cobb Chamber of Commerce to help provide food to those in need, help local restaurant keep workers employed, and provide a vehicle for citizens to help each other. Otter’s Chicken has delivered to Center for Children and Young Adults, Widow Strong, The Zone, YMCA, Mother’s Making Change, Tommy Nobis Center workers, Legacy Village, MUST Ministries, and Table on Deck. They have also continued to exercise their hospitality skills by hosting several spirit nights with local schools and sports teams by making them “Take-Out” spirit nights and donating a portion of the sales back to that group.
Also on their line-up is the Feed the Frontline Campaign from ezCater where they are helping to deliver meals to healthcare workers in Atlanta. In addition to that, Otter’s joined the “Caring for Kennestone” team by preparing and delivering 500 boxed lunches to Kennestone Hospital.
We are so grateful for community-focused organizations like Otter’s Chicken. They also partnered with a local shirt company to sell t-shirts for a limited time only to raise money for small businesses. Shirt Shanty is offering this “Stronger Together ATL” t-shirt on their website and 100% of the proceeds will go to small businesses.
Please continue to support our Small Business All-Star’s like Otter’s Chicken – helping the community is a hole-in-one!
