Happy Birthday, Snap Kitchen Philly! Wow – it’s been a year already.
Kicking off 2016, while you were watching the fireworks at Penn’s Landing, we were gearing up to introduce Snap to our amazing city.
As with everything in our world, it all started with the food – the Central Commissary. We built a gorgeous custom kitchen in North Kensington’s Maken Studios South building, where we created over 70 local jobs and over 400,000 meals in 2016.
When it came to the storefronts, we hit the ground running. Between February 5th and May 7th, we opened 6 shops in Center City and the ‘burbs, participated in over 100 community events, and made countless connections with partner organizations.
But of course, we didn’t stop there. We decided to help the City of Philadelphia & local tech startup Vea Fitness combat our city’s health crisis by sponsoring the inaugural Philly Free Streets, which opened 10 city miles to over 30,000 walkers, runners, cyclists and other active residents on an amazing September morning. Weeks later, we opened the Fishtown store right next to the Flagship location for our partners at La Colombe.
2017 is sure to bring more excitement in Snap Kitchen world, with two fresh new shops – Bella Vista & Wayne, we see you – and incredible new menu additions coming your way.
Philly, we love you like a Grilled Kale Hoppin’ Jawn.
