Billing itself as America’s premier chicken finger restaurant, Guthrie’s may soon be available again in Dothan.
Development plans submitted to build a Guthrie’s, famous for its limited menu of fried chicken, fries, coleslaw, toast and sweet tea, at the corner of John D. Odom Road and Highway 84 West were recently approved by planning staff.
Frank Breaux, the principal town planner for Dothan, said planning permission had also recently been approved, but not yet issued.
Reeves Engineering and Construction submitted engineering plans to the city on behalf of DDCU V, LLC, a Webb-based investment firm. The only agent listed in the company is John E. Downs, according to online records.
A new building is planned to house the restaurant in front of the Publix Mall behind the Southeast Health medical office with the entrance facing John D. Odom Road.
The construction and opening schedule is unclear at this time.
