“Joella’s Hot Chicken, a fast casual restaurant known for its hot chicken and made-from-scratch Southern side dishes, announced it will open its newest Indiana location near 146th and Carey Road in Carmel in late Spring 2020. The most recent Central Indiana location joins two Indianapolis restaurants and a store in Bloomington and will add 65-70 full-and part-time employees.

Located at 2554 East 146th Street in the Cool Creek Commons shopping complex and just east of outdoor retail and lifestyle center Clay Terrace, Joella’s will transform the 4,116-square-foot space into a Southern dining experience for the entire family. The restaurant will feature both an indoor and outdoor dining area with seating for 130 guests. Neighboring businesses include Stein Mart and The Fresh Market.

In July, Joella’s announced plans to double in size with its expansion in the Midwest and Southeast, increasing its footprint to five states and reinforcing Joella’s as the largest hot chicken restaurant brand in the United States.

“Hoosiers have embraced Joella’s premium hot chicken and Southern hospitality since we opened our first Indiana location three years ago,” said Christina Happel, Regional Vice President of Operations for Joella’s Hot Chicken. “That’s why we are excited to open yet another restaurant in Central Indiana to welcome even more guests to experience our spiced-just-right hot chicken and mouth-watering Southern side dishes.”

Since 2015, Joella’s has been serving up a Southern-inspired menu that includes:
Hot chicken: Hot chicken is the restaurant’s specialty. Joella’s starts with all-natural chicken that is brined to lock in juiciness and flavor. Favorite menu items include Jumbo Tenders, Big Wings, and Joella’s famous Chicken and Waffles. Joella’s also offers a vegan chicken option.

Heat levels: Joella’s serves its hot chicken with your choice of six unique heat levels: Southern (no heat), Spiked Honey, Ella’s Fav, Tweener, Hot, and Fire-in Da-Hole (so spicy it’s waiver-worthy).

Made-from-scratch Southern sides: Made in-store daily, guests can enjoy the many made-from-scratch side dishes such as Creamy Mac & Cheese, Green Beans with Bacon, Sweet Vinegar Slaw, Parm Garlic Fries, and Kale Crunch Salad.

Joella’s Hot Chicken is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, and kids eat free every Tuesday beginning at 4 p.m. Guests can dine in or pick up, with a drive thru available at select stores. Joella’s also offers a full catering menu. Each store serves Boylan Craft Sodas and a selection of canned craft beers.

Details for the grand opening of the Carmel location will be announced in the near future, including job opportunities and plans to give away “Free Hot Chicken for a Year” to the first 100 customers in line during grand opening events.
