Say it ain’t so! Chicken and waffle fans across the country may go into withdrawal. It is reported that yesterday, the Georgia Department of Revenue raided Gladys Knight’s Chicken and Waffles. Gladys Knight’s son, who runs the operation, is at the center of an investigation involving diversion of $1 million in funds. Gladys Knight is reportedly not involved in the investigation.
This is bad news for fans of the popular Atlanta area restaurant. All three Gladys Knight’s Chicken and Waffles locations in metro Atlanta have been closed. Officials say the restaurants may reopen as soon as Thursday, but under state control.
