Cordell and Tawanda Pirtle
Celebrating our 60th year in Memphis. 2014 Memphis Distinguished Restaurateur of the Year. Since 1957, Jack Pirtle’s Chicken has been serving the “Best Fried Chicken, Homemade Gravy, and Delicious Old Fashion Steak Sandwiches in the Mid South Market.” Founders Jack and Orva Pirtle turned the operation over to their only child, Cordell Pirtle, in 1979. At that time Cordell had been the manager of their Jack Pirtle Highland Store for 17 years. Today, Cordell and his wife, Tawanda, together with devoted team employees, enjoy the business of making people happy by serving them great southern food at a reasonable price. Over the years, the Pirtles have loved sharing laughs, stories, and great food with their customers. Jack Pirtle’s has eight Memphis locations and is proud to say “Business is GREAT in MEMPHIS.” The Pirtles are very thankful for growing sales year after year and are also very proud to call Memphis home. The owners of Jack Pirtle’s believe in treating customers with loving care. Being active and giving back to the community is one of the major keys to success.
