EAT Restaurant Partners is opening a second location of its popular Shockoe Bottom fried chicken restaurant in Chesterfield County.

A Hot Chick: A Fried Chicken Joint is in the works for Winterfield Crossing, a mixed use development in the works at 14210 Midlothian Turnpike in Chesterfield from Blackwood Development Co.

The original location opened in January at 7 N. 17th St. and its signature hot chicken sandwiches tied for first place as the best chicken sandwich in town in an unofficial online poll by the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

Winterfield Crossing is expected to open in 2020. Other tenants include Gather Workspaces, Carytown Bicycle Co., Row House (a gym franchise), Aldi, Starbucks and a BurgerIM restaurant.

This will be the 14th restaurant for EAT Restaurant Partners.

EAT Restaurant Partners is the largest single restaurant operator in the Richmond area — with 11 restaurants in three localities and now three more on the way. Osaka Steak & Sushi, Fat Dragon, Hot Chick, Wild Ginger, Boulevard Burger & Brew, Pizza and Beer of Richmond (PBR), Wong Gonzalez and Red Salt are just a few of the group’s concepts around town in Short Pump, Shockoe Bottom, the West End, downtown, the Fan District, the cusp of Chesterfield and Powhatan County.

The group also has a Wong Gonzalez in the works in Short Pump and a Pizza and Beer of Richmond under construction in Hanover County. The Wong Gonzalez location is expected to open in early December in the GreenGate development in Henrico County.

The second location of Hot Chick will be the group’s first restaurant in Chesterfield.

Peter Vick and Harrison Hall with Colliers International represented Winterfield Crossing in the deal.
