Chef Ashley Christensen, who has gained national acclaim as the chef of Poole’s Diner, is bringing her signature fried chicken to new parts of the Triangle in 2020. The renowned chef has entered a partnership with MDO Holdings to create a new fast-casual chicken sandwich restaurant. Christensen has been working to craft the menu which currently features five unique iterations of chicken sandwiches, three flavorful sides, two salads, handspun milkshakes and delicious fried pies. The restaurants will also serve beer and wine on tap and by the bottle.
MDO Holdings announced today that one of its portfolio companies, Midtown Yoga, will open its second Triangle-area yoga studio in early 2020. The new studio will be in Durham’s new University Hill development. The nearly 3,000 square foot space will feature two heated studios and offer a variety of yoga classes, meditation, workshops, teacher trainings, retreats, event space opportunities and more.
