Otter’s Chicken Tenders has announced the closing of their Cool Springs location. This news comes just over a year after closing the Otter’s Chicken Tenders in East Nashville’s 5th and Main condo project.
Last day of business for the Cool Springs restaurant is Sunday, December 18th.
Letter posted on door:
To All of Our Loyal Customers:
Sunday, December 18th will be our last day of business at our Cool Springs location. After over six years in business in Franklin, we have decided not to renew our lease.
We appreciate all of our loyal customers and the hard work of our employees throughout the years.
Please visit our location on Music Row at 1528 Demonbreun Street or Contact us through our website at www.otterschicken.com.
Thanks for understanding,
Otter’s Chicken Tenders
There are now two remaining Otter’s Chicken Tenders in the Nashville area, one at 1528 Demonbreun in Nashville and the other at 1970 Medical Center Parkway in Murfreesboro. Their website shows another location in Marietta, GA.
Hard to say why the Otter’s Chicken Tenders in Cool Springs closed. The number of competitors has increased with all the recently opened restaurants in Cool Springs. Possibly the landlord thought the considerably higher lease rates for retail space around the new Whole Foods down the street justified an increased lease rate for the retail space occupied by Otter’s Chicken Tenders? They shouldn’t. There is big difference in being located adjacent to the new Whole Foods McEwen versus an unanchored retail center with poor visibility and dancers out front wearing gold pants while holding “We Buy Gold” signs almost everyday.
At least Otter’s Chicken Tenders was able to ride it out until their lease expired.
One other thing, everyone should have a lot of respect for Otter’s announcing their last day, before their actual last day.
It rarely ever happens.
