Hardware House celebrates opening with ribbon cutting Submitted photo

On Tuesday, July 18, 2023, the Douglas-Coffee County Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the grand opening of Downtown Douglas’s newest restaurant, Hardware House. Hardware House is locally owned and operated by Garrett and Kacey Spivey, and was formerly known as Spivey’s Catfish House. Hardware House is located at 310 S. Peterson Ave. in Douglas.



A little history on the new restaurant — Hardware House is located in what used to be Lott’s True Value Hardware, Inc.; and prior to Lott's, it was known as Power’s Hardware. When local developer David Varnedore purchased the building a few years ago, he made plans to house a sit-down restaurant on the first floor. Meanwhile, the Spiveys owned and operated Spivey’s Catfish House, a Douglas staple, that they purchased from the Peterson family in 2016.



Fast-forward seven years, and Varnedore’s vision was perfect for what Garrett and Kacey had brewing in their minds for their latest restaurant concept. Combining both tradition and history, the Spiveys are proud to introduce Hardware House to the community.



“I was born and raised in Coffee County. My family has been serving up good food here for over 50 years. Kacey moved here in middle school with her mother, and we now live on our farm in Ware County. Our boys still attend school here, and Douglas will always be home,” says Garrett.

When asked about their vision for opening Hardware House, Garrett stated, “We are thrilled to introduce everyone to the Hardware House. I have always felt that Douglas didn't have enough nice, sit-down restaurants, especially on Sundays. The Hardware House is sure to have something for everyone, whether it's a Friday night steak-dinner, drinks with friends on Saturday,  or a big southern style lunch buffet with my Papa Holt's famous fried chicken.”



With a large crowd in attendance, Garrett and Kacey, along with their two boys, Landon and Grayson, proudly cut the ribbon in front of their new hometown restaurant.
