In less than 20 years, JJ Fish had expanded into more than 130 restaurants.

On March 8, 1982, James J. Green went in search of the American dream and founded JJ Fish on Martin Luther King Drive in Chicago, Illinois. At this small restaurant, Green sold fresh fish to his customers and charged $1 to fry each fish in his “secret” batter. Not only was his fish fresh, but his batter was irresistible! Through his love and dedication of fresh and delicious food, he turned his small store into the very successful restaurant business it is today.
