LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Joella's Hot Chicken is opening a second location in Louisville.

The restaurant will open June 1 in Middletown on Shelbyville Road.

The owners say they needed a larger location to handle the high volume of catering orders they receive.

It's the latest concept from Tony Palombino, the CEO of Boombozz Craft Pizza and Manny and Merle on Whiskey Row.

The restaurants specialize in Nashville-style hot chicken.

Joella's first location is on Frankfort Avenue near Cannons Lane.
