The Austin-based Tex-Mex restaurant Chuy’s plans to open its first Virginia location in West Broad Village at 11229 West Broad Street on Tuesday, April 9. To prepare for the local launch, the restaurant is now hiring approximately 175 team members.
Longtime Richmond resident Benjamin Scarborough will serve as local owner and operator.
“The first time I tried Chuy’s, I knew I had to bring it home to Richmond,” said Scarborough. “The community is going to feel right at home in the restaurant. We can’t wait to open our doors next month.”
Keeping with tradition, the 8,000-square-foot West Broad Village location is designed using the company’s motto of, “If you’ve seen one Chuy’s, you’ve seen one Chuy’s.”
It will incorporate local Richmond elements, such as a Dog Wall featuring pictures of local canines, along with some décor staples, including metal palm trees, an Elvis shrine and the Fully-Loaded Nacho Car: an unlimited build-your-own nacho station with chips, salsa, queso, taco meat and more available during happy hour.
Chuy’s will be hiring a variety of positions, including front-of-the-house hosts, servers, bussers and bartenders. In addition, the restaurant is looking for kitchen staff to help prepare its made-from-scratch dishes and signature sauces. Full-time and part-time positions are available.

“From our tortillas that are hand-rolled throughout the day to our Salsa Fresca that’s made fresh every hour, Chuy’s is known for our dedication to fresh Tex-Mex dishes at affordable prices,” added Scarborough. “We’re looking for employees passionate about cooking delicious food, with positive attitudes and a commitment to excellent customer service.”
Interested applicants can visit the hiring office Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 2436 Old Brick Road, Glen Allen, VA 23060, around the corner from the Chuy’s restaurant.
