Each of the Spice House Restaurant locations features stylish décor reminiscent of relaxing Caribbean island getaways.

Restaurants are located in the culturally diverse and affluent communities of Midtown and Buckhead, as well as the predominantly African American and affluent communities of Cascade in Southwest Atlanta and Stonecrest (formerly known as Lithonia) in southeast Atlanta. According to Joseph, these locations were all strategically located due to resident demographics. For example, the Cascade restaurant in southwest Atlanta, which was the first to open in 2017, regularly sees customers including entrepreneurs, professionals, dignitaries and celebrities from film, television, sports and music.
“Everyday customers of our Cascade site can include community leaders like new Atlanta Mayor Andre Dickens, former Mayors Keisha Lance Bottoms and Andrew Young, Reverend Bernice King, as well as TV celebrities and music like Queen Latifah and KeKe Palmer, and some of the Atlanta Housewives actors,” Joseph explains, “and the same goes for all of our sites,” he shared.
