The Short Pump location is Chang’s third restaurant in the Richmond-area and the ninth overall.

In a recent interview with Mark Holmberg, Chang said he decided to put his restaurants in Richmond because “it is a very important city in the South” and he felt he could be successful here.

“I love it here in Virginia,” Chang told Holmberg in a June interview. “Also, Virginia has given me a lot of opportunities.”

His other restaurant locations include Arlington, Charlottesville, Fredericksburg, Virginia Beach, and Williamsburg.
