Plus two more locations of Shaun Doty’s eatery to open in Georgia

Longtime Atlanta chef Shaun Doty is expanding the footprint of his local fried chicken restaurant.

Bantam + Biddy is slated to open a location Oct. 8 in the main atrium of Concourse C in Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

“It’s exciting,” Doty said of the 1,000 square-foot space. “It’s going to be cool. We’ll have a whole restaurant in the airport, not just a kiosk.”

The menu will feature the “greatest hits of Bantam,” Doty said. A rotisserie will be brought in from France to offer roast chicken.

While other food and beverage options, including Krispy Kreme Shake Shack, are opening on the concourse, Doty said Bantam + Biddy is a "uniquely local operator".

“I am an aficionado of restaurant dining in airports,” he said. “It’s cool when you can get a taste of local dining.”

But the Hartsfield-Jackson space is far from the only Bantam + Biddy news. The restaurant will also open a location on Amelia Island in October.

In addition, Doty said he plans to convert his similar Atlantic Station concept Chick-a-Biddy into Bantam + Biddy in the new year. Atlantic Station is currently undergoing renovations.

“It will be nice when they are done,” he said. Chick-a-Biddy debuted six years ago.

Currently, Bantam + Biddy has locations in Ansley Mall and Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Doty is also behind ATL Taco at Lenox Mall,  King BBQ in Buckhead and The Federal in Midtown.
