Resa Bates and Allan Bloodworth know a thing or two about running restaurants.
Bates started as a 12-year-old helping out on the farm and in her family’s famed restaurant, Bates House of Turkey, in Greenville. She continued gaining skills as a hostess, waiting tables and tending bar in Birmingham, Montgomery, Charleston, South Carolina, Wyoming and New Orleans.
