RVA residents to get new bars, rugs and decorative furniture at new restaurants
A new breed of bar has arrived in Richmond.
The RVA Restaurant Supply Co. is opening its first Richmond location and has hired an architect to design the interior of the space, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
The restaurant is expected to open in early 2019.
The company will be selling its signature bar to restaurants, hotels and other food outlets.
The company’s CEO, Daniel Shurin, said the company hopes to open more locations nationwide.
“This is a really big deal,” he said.
“It’s a brand new brand that has a really cool aesthetic to it, which is going to make it very appealing for our restaurant partners and the public.”
Shurinn said the new restaurant is a departure from RVA’s restaurant culture.
“We’re going to bring that to the people,” he told ABC News.
“And I think that’s going to help us build this brand and this brand will be a part of our community.”
Shorin, a former marketing executive for the company, said he wanted to create a place that people would love to go to and that would be very different from RVs that they would walk through and see people sitting at tables with a few other people.RVA Restaurant Supplies Co. opened its first location in Richmond in June.
The Virginia Beach, Va., company employs about 60 people.
The RVA location will serve as a second restaurant, and it will be called the RVA Bistro, according the Richmond Business Journal.
The new bar is expected for opening in late 2019, with Shurins plans to hire an architect.
