On Thursday, Travel Channel film crews headed to Big Shake’s Hot Chicken and Fish in Franklin to film an episode for the network show “Food Paradise.”

Shawn “Big Shake” Davis, the chef, and his wife, Robin, own the location at 1203 Murfreesboro Road. They opened it in 2015, and their restaurant was previously featured on the network’s show, “Man v. Food.”

Davis debuted his shrimp burgers on the show “Shark Tank” in 2011. He was ultimately rejected, but later opened two restaurants in Franklin. Their first location on West Main Street shuttered, though there is one other location in Huntsville.

The Davises invited their customers to come into the store Thursday to order food and be featured on the show between the hours of 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

“Food Paradise” has been running on Travel Channel for a decade. Robin said her father is a huge fan, though she wasn’t particularly familiar with the show when they contacted Big Shake’s.

Though she couldn’t reveal what menu item the show would feature, a film crew director said the episode would air in the spring of 2019.
