OUR OWNERS


Mike & Meagan

Early in 2018, after spending time trying to find the perfect fit, we found it in FMT and acquired the restaurant. For Mike, originally from Buffalo, New York, and Meagan, born and raised in Pittsburgh, this would not only be a tremendous life move, but a career move all in one. For the past several years, both of us worked in a family franchise business in Pittsburgh where Mike ran the Operations of the company and Meagan focused on Marketing. With the sale of that business, we were ready for our next adventure. Having a love for food and people and over 30 years of restaurant experience between us, we knew we wanted to stay in the business that felt most comfortable to us. Our core belief is to have a hometown, homemade, quality restaurant with smiles and warm greetings. We want to provide the best possible experience for every customer, new or regular.

We feel so fortunate to have found this business and the people here. We have been welcomed with open arms by our employees and the community. It could not have been a more perfect fit. We are proud of our strong culture where not only does everyone love being at work, but our customers love choosing FMT to dine at.

We are also strong believers in investing back in the Community. For us, this is so much more than a restaurant; so much more than good food, drinks, shopping, and conversation. This is a starting platform for many more endeavors in our future.
When not working, we enjoy spending our time outdoors with our Mini Goldendoodle fur baby, Ella.

Josh is a central Georgia resident born and raised. He began his restaurant career at a young age and instantly fell in love with the business. His passion for the industry, eagerness to learn, and strive for success quickly had him moving through the ranks. He truly embodies Southern hospitality and treats every guest as a friend, always eager to talk about the food, cocktails, retail shop, event space, or the history of our beloved building. The only thing he prides himself on as much as the restaurant is being a loving husband and father of three.

Cody is a Central Georgia native and a 2008 graduate from Pike County High School.
