Construction for This Is It has resumed at the site of the former Folks restaurant on Douglas Boulevard. In September of 2020, construction was suspended due to a fire which gutted the structure. Douglas County residents were left wondering whether the franchise would still expand to Douglasville. 

According to their website, This Is It Southern Kitchen and Bar-B-Q has been in the metro Atlanta area since 1983. Their home-style southern cuisine of Bar-B-Q, Seafood, and Soul Food can now be found in 12 locations. The DC Flash has reached out to This is It’s corporate to find out information about their expected opening date, but have yet to get a response.
