New hot chicken spot opening in Herndon next month

 

Hot chicken fans have another option to satisfy cravings for a Nashville-style sandwich in Herndon.

Hangry Joe’s Hot Chicken plans to open up a 1,350-square-foot location in Worldgate Centre next to Qdoba Mexican Grill, a Mexican restaurant located at 13031 Worldgate Drive.

A company representative tells Reston Now that the Herndon location is expected to open in late November. A target grand opening date of November 24 has been set, but the representative cautioned that the date was an estimate.

The business already has locations in Ashland and Fairfax. The Herndon location would be the second in Northern Virginia.

Hangry Joe’s is rapidly expanding in Virginia. More locations are planned in Alexandria, Richmond, and Centreville. A Maryland location is planned in Annapolis.

The menu includes hot chicken sandwiches, chicken fingers, fries, chicken and waffles, tenders, fried okra and rice.

Derek Cha, the founder of Sweet Frog Frozen Yogurt, partnered with Mike Kim to launch the business.

The location would rival Wooboi Chicken, which opened a brick-and-mortar spot in 2019 at 139 Spring Street.
