A new-to-market breakfast chain has racked up another restaurant space in the Richmond area.
Maple Street Biscuit Co. plans to open an outpost at 2061-A Huguenot Road in the Huguenot Village Shopping Center.
The Midlothian location is slated to open in early spring, company spokeswoman Zoe Rall said in an email this week. It will join Maple Street’s first location in the region and in the state at the Promenade Shops in Short Pump, which is expected to open in February.
Rall said the two Richmond-area spots will round out the Tennessee-based company’s current plans for expansion in Virginia and will be among 15 new locations planned nationwide in 2022.
The Huguenot Village location will fill a 2,600-square-foot space in the Publix-anchored shopping center, which also is home to The Hot Yoga Barre and Fusion Bowl. Maple Street’s space was formerly home to Zoes Kitchen.
Other recent arrivals to Huguenot Village include Chicano Boy Taco and Crumbl Cookies.
Connie Jordan Nielsen of Thalhimer represented the landlord in lease negotiations in the Maple Street deal.
Maple Street was founded in 2012 and acquired by Cracker Barrel in 2019. It has more than 40 locations in North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Texas, according to its website.

This is such a tried-and-true formula for chains. Put something in Short Pump. And if it does well, maybe us lesser folk south of the river can have one too… (grin)
It took years, but we finally got a Trader Joe’s as a recent example.
