A small chain devoted to spicy Nashville-style chicken called Hangry Joe’s Chicken is making a big expansion, opening in the Alexandria Commons shopping center and other locations throughout the region in the next few months.

The restaurant management said in a message that the Alexandria location aims to open in the former Subway in Alexandria Commons early next year.

“It will be at 3227 Duke Street, Alexandria, formerly subway,” the restaurant said in the message. “Should open sometime early next year.”

The restaurant was founded by Derek Cha, the founder of Sweet Frog Frozen Yogurt, and Mike Kim. There are currently Hangry Joe’s locations in Ashland and Fairfax (10692 Fairfax Blvd).

As the name indicates, the restaurant specializes in chicken dishes, like a sandwich featuring chicken breast and ciderslaw on a brioche bun for $8.95. Other dishes include Korean chicken nuggets and the classic southern chicken and waffle dish.

The restaurant also announced plans to expand to Herndon, Annapolis, Short Pump, Alexandria, Kingstown, Centreville, Richmond.
