Joe’s Gourmet Fish Fry

Joe and Maranda Dowell have been serving good food spiced with friendly hospitality to their friends, family and the general public for many years. Initially, the Dowells traveled extensively to fairs, conventions and sports events, serving seafood fried in a special batter Joe had created. Eventually, they decided to go into the restaurant business. In 1998, with financial backing by Joe’s parents, they opened four restaurants, two in Atlanta, and two in New Orleans. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans and they were forced to close two restaurants. Never ones to give in to difficulty or run from a challenge, Joe and Maranda decided to refocus their efforts into packaging and selling the special seasoning mixture that had won so many loyal fans over the years.

In 2007, Joe’s Gourmet, LLC was incorporated and the Dowells resumed their travels, holding numerous promotional events for Joe’s Gourmet Fish Fry—that delectable mixture of cornmeal and wheat flour enhanced with herbs, spices and flavorings.

Joe’s Gourmet is a family business and Joe and Maranda consider themselves blessed to be able to share good food and home cooking with others. One of the ways they share their good fortune is by volunteering once a month at Safe House, a local non-profit organization feeding people in need.
