Bryant’s Breakfast (Bryant’s), an award-winning* eatery that has been a culinary staple of the Mid-South for over 50 years, now has a new owner. Phil Bryant, the prior owner and son of founder Jimmy Bryant, has “passed the torch” to a local investor group. The Pickler Law Firm, located in Collierville, Tennessee, preserved the iconic brand by handling the sale and negotiations of the business.

Jimmy and Jane Bryant opened the restaurant in the Parkway Village area in 1968. Nine years later, the restaurant moved to its current location on Summer Avenue. Starting as a small BBQ joint, huge success was found when their now-famous breakfast menu was introduced.

“The Pickler Law Firm was very much aware of the significance of this iconic restaurant as a Memphis institution,” said David Pickler, President of The Pickler Law Firm. “We were challenged to balance our desire to deliver value to the Bryant family with the community demand that this incredible brand be preserved. We are ecstatic that we have been able to orchestrate an outstanding result for the family while ensuring that the legacy of Bryant’s can continue for generations to come. As a loyal Bryant’s customer, this is truly a delicious outcome.”

The buyer was one of several competitive bidders on Bryant’s earlier this year. After a period of careful due-diligence by The Pickler Law Firm, selected bids were presented to Mr. Bryant. On Monday, March 1st, 2021, the iconic Memphis landmark, Bryant’s, was officially sold. There is no date set for the reopening at this point, but Memphians can look forward to the famous, made-from-scratch biscuits in the very near future.
