Brand History

The history of J. Alexander’s restaurant starts back in 1971 in Nashville, Tennessee when the three businessmen John Neff, Jr., Jack C.

Volunteer Capital Corporation changed its name to Winners Corps in 1982. Throughout the late ’80s, the Winner’s restaurant faced many difficulties and began to lose money. So, in 1989 the company was sold to RTM, Inc. and Lonnie J. Stout II became the chairman. The name of the company was changed again to Volunteer Capital and started to focus on the opening of a new line of restaurants with casual dining specific.

The first J. Alexander’s restaurant was opened in May 1991, in Nashville, Tennessee. It was located on a road that was known by the locals as “Death Row”. It had this name because many previous businesses on the road have failed throughout time. But this was not the case for J. Alexander’s restaurant as it was very successful almost immediately.

The company continued to open new restaurants and grew exponentially during the 90s. The name of the company was changed to J. Alexander’s Corporation in 1997 and in 2012 it was sold to Fidelity National Financial.
