Hip-hop artist, actor, and restaurateur Chris “Ludacris” Bridges has partnered with Jackmont Hospitality, Inc. to open a new restaurant, Chicken+Beer, at Concourse D of Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
Ludacris took to Instagram to announce his latest endeavor, which opened Nov. 17.
“It took me three years, but it’s finally coming to fruition,” the rapper said in the video. “I’ve seen it come from my third album, triple platinum, all the way to a restaurant … I’m talking about great food, great drinks, great energy, and my employees are the best employees in the world.”
Chicken+Beer is not only a place to enjoy a meal, but is also a business that speaks to minorities in the hospitality industry and empowers cultural and social landscapes.
"For over 20 years, the Jackmont Hospitality name has been synonymous with delicious food, warm hospitality and a steadfast commitment to excellence,” Daniel Halpern, CEO and co-founder of Jackmont Hospitality Inc., said in a press release. “Chris is the quintessential advocate for Atlanta's rich culture and together we aim to introduce Chicken+Beer as a reflection of the city's character."
