Deen, who also co-owns restaurants with her sons in Savannah, GA, and throughout the South, also opened her self-titled retail store at Broadway at the Beach last year. But her new line of eateries, first launched in Pigeon Forge, TN, puts the focus on the concept of family dining, where patrons gather around large tables and self-serve from platters and bowls of some of her most famous recipes.

Wahlburgers, the national chain made famous by the hit TV show starring the Wahlberg brothers, opened at the end of 2016 and has been serving their fare to long lines of hungry patrons and celebrity seekers.
