RICHMOND, Va. — An empty storefront at a prominent downtown office complex is swapping square burger patties for big bowls of salad. Chopt Creative Salad Co. is opening its second metro Richmond outpost in the former Wendy’s location on the ground floor of the One James Center building at 901 E. Cary St.
