The Original Jefferson's Restaurant opened in Jacksonville, AL. on September 15, 1991. Jefferson's was an immediate hit. People loved the huge juicy burgers, fresh gulf oysters and world famous delicious wings. Over the next 8 years Jefferson's expanded its menu and developed a dedicated "cult" like following. In 1999, Jeff partnered up with long time employee and friend Sean McCooey to expand the Jefferson's brand. We opened our second store location in June of 2000 in Lawrence, Kansas, Rome, GA in 2004 and Gadsen, AL in 2006. That same year, loyal Rome customers Patti and Jim Grindstaff approached us about opening a Jefferson's of their own. We opened our first franchise in Belleville, IL. Soon the franchise bug bit and concept caught on and thanks to our loyal customers, we now have 20 Jefferson's in 6 different states and continue to grow. The Brentwood, TN location is owned by David Carulla who is the Director of Training and Development for Jefferson's Franchise Management.
