Huddle House, a Southern-style family restaurant chain, is celebrating its first location in Virginia Beach.
The 51-year-old chain will hold a ribbon-cutting at 8 a.m. today at 1908 Landstown Centre Way, near the intersection of Princess Anne and Dam Neck roads, according to a press release. U.S. Rep. Scott Rigell will be on hand, it said.
The location will be run by franchisee David Worthley with his daughter and her husband. The announcement described Worthley as “formerly an FBI special agent and president of a telecommunications surveillance company” who sees his new restaurant as a place where the community can gather for events.
“From hosting fundraisers for the high schools, to BINGO morning events for our seniors, to special events for other local groups, our Huddle House is really going to be a fun place to be,” he said in the release.
The restaurant seats 92 diners and is open from 6 a.m. to midnight Monday through Thursday, and 24 hours from Friday to Sunday. There are more than 400 Huddle Houses open or under development nationwide, and more than 100 more are scheduled to open in the next three years, according to the announcement.
