The Marietta Local

June 26, 2018


The Marietta Local is a restaurant serving breakfast and lunch that is committed to providing an incredible customer experience to all of its guests. The Marietta Local serves made-from-scratch-comfort food. The restaurant focuses on getting the freshest ingredients available from the local market for the preparation of its entire menu.

The Marietta Local also operates a full service catering company that has grown dramatically over the last year. Growth in The Marietta Local amounted to approximately 35% of gross revenue in 2016. However, with the rising success of its thriving catering business, the company’s gross revenue has increased by 60%. This sudden explosion of growth was a huge challenge for The Marietta Local. The Marietta Local then had to create a plan in which they had to expand to a temporary kitchen and hire seasonal staff who took 90% of the catering business out of the restaurant and eliminated unneeded stress. Owner Jim Tidwell said, “It worked beautifully.”

In the 2018 Taste of Marietta, The Marietta Local won the “Big Chicken” award for the fifth year in a row for the best fried chicken in Marietta. The Marietta Local was also recently named as the “Best Breakfast” in Cobb County by the Cobb Life Magazine. Owner Jim Tidwell makes a point to visit with every table and every guest to ensure that his customer’s needs are met and they leave happy. The Marietta Local looks upon its success as result of taking care of friends and neighbors in the community and treating them with the respect.
