Family values: The Lovett family legacy lives on in restaurant, 5 generations

The Lovett family, one of the largest families in Alton, has been slowly making a name for themselves in the neighborhoods of the area.

“It started out as a fundraiser to fund our familay reunions,” said Brandon “Newdi” Lovett. “In the future, we hope to have a franchise.” Starting from selling food from their own kitchens many years ago, the family recently opened their doors to their new location in the 2500 block of College Avenue in Uptown Alton, Lovett’s Snoot Fish Chicken & More.

Lovin’ Lovett’s

The Lovett family is synonymous with Alton. Alton resident Merry Lovett had 18 siblings, 15 who are still living, and when you throw in children, nieces and nephews, and grandchildren, that number balloons to nearly triple digits.

Imagine the work invested in a family dinner? That’s why Merry and her family decided to open Lovett’s Snoots, Fish, Chicken and More on Aug. 14 at 234 E. Elm St. The problem was the demand put a stranglehold on the small, carry-out location, so on Jan. 31 Lovett’s moved to 2512 College Ave. with booths and stools for patrons to have the option to dine in. It called for a menu expansion, too. Lovett’s specializes in soul food, which provides a niche for fans of the cuisine.

Small Business Revolution: Soul Food Legacy is Living Large

A whole new world opened for the Lovett family when Deluxe Corporation selected the family’s namesake restaurant as one of its chosen six businesses to receive expertise and funding for improvements and re-branding.

Owners Merry Ann Lovett, and her son, Brad Chavours, mentioned renovation and expansion as goals for Lovett’s Snoots, Fish, Chicken & More almost exactly one year ago to The Telegraph, when the Deluxe Corp.’s Small Business Revolution concept was yet unknown to #OurAlton. Now, Lovett and Chavours’ business is renamed Lovett’s Soul Food since the “Revolution” began.
