Floyds founder, Otis Floyd Jr (deceased) opened the first Floyds Restaurant on Tuckaseegee Road in 1986 in honor of his mother Mrs. Clattie-Bell Floyd. Even while serving in the US Army and working as telecommunications technician, he always knew that his mothers cooking was something everyone would enjoy and needed to experience. Therefore; he reached out to his family and pulled together a brilliant plan to offer quality food at an exceptional price. Many have come from miles around just to try our fresh collard greens, amazing mac-n-cheese, tender stew-beef and home-made sweet potato pie that Grandma continues to make daily.
