Our Story

Our Mission

At Baba’s Chicken, our goal is simple — we want to deliver high-quality Nashville Hot Chicken and the best customer service anyone can have. Since the day we started our Pop-Up, we maintained a high level of transparency with our customers. We built the Baba's brand as a community and have gained some very loyal, incredible customers in the process.

Who's the Baba?

The co-founder of Baba’s Chicken was a student who studied Financial Accounting at the University of Riverside. This young man’s love for food was no random discovery, it was normal for him to spend countless hours scrolling through food pages for dinner inspiration. He never had any formal culinary training from some fancy chef, he simply cooks from the heart and for happy bellies.

When the co-founder was a child, he spent a lot of time hovering over his dad while he was preparing Sunday’s BBQ. He was impressed with his dad’s ability to never measure anything, while always knowing exactly how much of each spice he needed. He stated that “My parents had a significant impact on my interest in food, and that's the primary reason I named my brand Baba's. I wanted it to reflect the "Dad-on-the-Grill" tradition that we all grew up on.”

Why Hot Chicken?

The moment we discovered Nashville Hot Chicken, it completely took over our lives. We immediately fell in love with the spices and the level of hospitality at Nashvillian Restaurants and the amazing flavors of their iconic fried chicken. We firmly believe that food is fuel for the soul, so we aimed to make our own high-quality recipe while delivering the greatest level of hospitality, paying homage to where it all started. We want customers to walk into Baba's and leave with a full belly and a huge smile on their face.
