Food safety solution ComplianceMate welcomes new customer Hattie B’s Hot Chicken

Lawrenceville, GA – October 26, 2018 – CM Systems, LLC, is delighted to welcome its newest customer, Nashville-based Hattie B’s Hot Chicken. Hattie B’s emphasis on flavor and freshness have helped it to heat up the hot chicken scene, and the young chain is growing fast. To help strengthen and enforce brand standards and food safety practices as they open new locations, Hattie B’s has chosen CM Systems’ ComplianceMate checklist and temperature monitoring system for all its stores.

Hattie B’s serves delicious Nashville-style hot fried chicken, accompanied by handmade Southern sides and served with local brews. The family-owned business, founded and operated by father-and-son team Nick Bishop, Sr. and Nick Bishop, Jr, focuses on creating a distinctive dining experience. While most hot chicken hotspots emphasize the “hot,” Hattie B’s executive chef John Lasater developed a more rounded flavor profile without losing any kick, with spice ranging from mild to “Shut the Cluck Up!!!” He then added freshly made Southern-style sides, served in a casual dining environment with a range of local beers on tap.

Hattie B’s fresh take on hot chicken has fueled rapid growth that shows no signs of cooling down. The young chain has three Nashville locations; one in Birmingham, Alabama; one in Memphis, Tennessee; and more on the way.

As we grow, I want a good quality assurance and food safety program in place to cover all our bases,” says Lasater. “We want to protect our brand and food.”

The ComplianceMate system includes wireless sensors to continuously monitor and record temperatures inside any cold holding units. Additionally, using the ComplianceMate app, users can also complete checklists for literally any HACCP or brand-specific benchmarks. “

“By partnering with ComplianceMate, Hattie B’s can do more than just serve safe food and protect guests,” says Thom Schmitt, Vice President of Sales at CM Systems, LLC. “They can also ensure that all locations adhere to the same corporate standards and procedures.”

The checklist system can grow with them while making it easy for staff at each location to stay on top of food safety and quality. “ComplianceMate makes it possible to see everything in real-time, so you can see if someone doesn't complete a certain required procedure,” says Lasater. “After we set it up, we spent 50% less time on the computer and more time on operations, so I loved it immediately. The overall cost of the system is minute compared to the gains you get out of the system.”
