Late Monday evening a series of social media posts revealed big changes for Chik’n & Mi and Hearth on Mellwood Eatery. With Friday’s restaurant reopening date fast approaching, owners Jason and Aenith Sananikone McCollum are consolidating their businesses, with Hearth ceasing operations but Chik’n & Mi moving from Brownsboro Road into the 1765 Mellwood space and relaunching on May 22.

The McCollums wrote:

It is with a heavy heart we announce that we are closing Hearth on Mellwood Eatery. Though this has been a difficult time for local businesses, we are happy to share that we are relocating our sister restaurant, Chik’ n & Mi, to the Hearth location, just a short distance from the current Chik’ n & mi location. This is a neighborhood we have come to love and which many of us call home. We consider our customers to be friends and family to us and we thank you for your unwavering support through the years.
We wil honor previously purchased gift cards from Hearth at Chik’ n & Mi.The new address is 1765 Mellwood Ave.
