Chuy’s to open in Chesterfield
CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (RichmondBizSense.com) – An Austin, Texas-based Tex-mex chain is cooking up a new location in Chesterfield County.
Chuy’s is set to open its second Richmond-area restaurant this summer at 4731 Brad McNeer Parkway in the Village at Swift Creek shopping center. The publicly traded company signed a ten-year lease for the 7,660-square-foot space.
The Midlothian property had formerly been home to a Topeka’s Steakhouse. The restaurant closed after the group that owned it, Cornett Hospitality, filed for bankruptcy in late 2012.
Michael Hatcher, Chuy’s vice president of real estate and development, said the company plans to spend $1.2 million on remodeling and construction in Midlothian and about $500,000 on fixtures, furniture and equipment.
