EVESHAM TOWNSHIP, NJ—(SBN)—Chickie’s & Pete’s Crab House and Sports Bar, a Philadelphia original, will be bringing its signature CrabFries and other seafood entrees to a former Champps with prominent frontage on Route 73, a main north-south highway for travelers from Philadelphia to southern New Jersey shore resorts.
Township Mayor Randy Brown, a coach for the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens, made the announcement inside the defunct Champps restaurant, surrounded by developer and restaurant representatives, and several former Philadelphia Eagles players who live in the township and had been urging the mayor to bring Chickie’s & Pete’s to this Burlington County community.
