The Philadelphia, PA-based “Chick-A-Boom” restaurant announced on their social media pages on Friday that they will be opening a new location in downtown Huntington, WV at the southeast corner of 3rd Avenue and 8th Street.
The restaurant came to the attention of Marshall fans recently when Thundering Herd Hall of Famer Randy Moss announced that he would be partnering with Chick-A-Boom founder Brittany Tolliferreo to become “half the face of the company.” At that time, Moss hinted at bringing a franchise back home to West Virginia with no further details.
On Friday, Chick-A-Boom posted the specific location in The Market space most recently occupied by The Corner Hoagies & Hops (801 3rd Avenue). In the same post, they announced that they are now taking employment applications. Inquiries for employment should be sent via direct message to the Chick-A-Boom Facebook page.
The Grand Opening of the Philadelphia Restaurant was July 31, 2022 and saw Randy Moss himself working a shift on opening day. There is no word yet on an opening day for the Huntington restaurant, but fans are hopeful to see “The Freak” back home and behind the counter at Chick-A-Boom very soon.
