The spot at 615 E. Martintown Road in North Augusta was selected because it is a busy thoroughfare, said Ali Kassam, a representative of the marketing and advertising agency that represents BullChicks.
“There’s a lot of other businesses in the area,” Kassam said. “Plus, they really liked the location. They thought it was a beautiful location. They thought it was a great opportunity to take it over and be able to offer another stand-alone location that has a drive-through for customers’ convenience.”
The building has housed Pork Chops, Carl’s Best BBQ and Chef’s Bistro & Grill restaurants.
BullChicks will have 15 to 20 employees, and the franchisee is hiring, Kassam said.
The Texas-based restaurant chain also has a BullChicks at 503 Highland Ave. in Augusta, which opened in January, closed briefly and reopened in June under new management.
