Miss Dots is named for Leola Rogers, whose nickname has been “Dot” since she was a child. She has also been cooking Southern style since she was eight-years-old when she first cooked on a wood burning stove. Rogers is famous for her fried chicken, collard greens, rice and gravy, cornbread, banana pudding, and pecan pies.
John Cassimus was so impressed that he and Tyre Stuckey engaged Rogers as their partner for use of her nickname, Dot” and her recipes to start a fast casual Southern restaurant, which also include a few of Cassimus’ own recipes.
Rogers first cooked for John Cassimus at the Sawtooth Plantation, a luxury hunting plantation in Russell County, her home county, and still does. She has worked for Cassimus since 2009 cooking hundreds of meals.
Prior to opening Miss Dots, Cassimus grew his mother, Zoes original Homewood eatery to a regional concept. Zoe and her husband, Marcus, opened the original Zoes Kitchen in Birmingham in 1995. Cassimus later sold his majority interest in 2007. He also founded, owns, and operates five Maki Fresh fast casual Asian restaurants and two Jinsei Sushi Bar and Lounge restaurants.
