Nashville’s “Chappy” Goes National with Exclusive Product-Line


John (Chappy) Chapman will be featured on QVC during the Gourmet Holiday 16th Anniversary Show Live on November 1, 2010 at 2 p.m. CST.  Chappy will debut his Original Classic Shrimp Creole which he created exclusively for QVC. 

Chappy has been a chef for 26 years and has been featured on Tennessee CrossRoads on NPT, Talk of the Town, Fox-Tennessee Mornings, as well as numerous television appearances in New Orleans, PBS, and the Gulf Coast.  He has won multiple awards and has been featured in many magazines and newspaper articles;  and now, he is going to QVC  to market his products to home viewers.  It will be shipped to the viewer’s door frozen; just heat and serve, leaving hours of prep time to Chappy.  Chappy and his wife, Starr, moved to Nashville, Tennessee after Hurricane Katrina demolished their restaurant and home on the Mississippi Gulf Coast in 2005.  Chappy re-opened his restaurant as Chappy’s on Church in midtown Nashville. His restaurant has been voted by the Nashville Scene as Best Cajun/Creole Restaurant in Nashville for 4 years in a row.   

Mark Locher & Associates, INC., a QVC Brokerage firm, is very proud to be part of this project. Chappy has developed eight gourmet food products from his homemade original recipes of which Classic Shrimp Creole will be the first. 

“Chappy has struck gold with the taste and flavors in his amazing dish.  We are very excited to bring Chappy to the QVC customer and share his Cajun, Creole food products with 92 million viewers”, says Locher.  

Chappy says, “Although I love the people and the lifestyle of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast, I am very proud to promote Tennessee products and services.  I use them in my businesses and products nationwide”.  Visit Chappy at his website which has hours of operation, menus, private dining, cooking classes, spices, pepper sauce, and Chappy Things.
