Snap Kitchen Closes Two Center City Locations

The fast-casual and diet-friendly hub is leaving Washington Square West and Fairmount.

Snap Kitchen Washington Square West

Since first landing here in February 2016, the Texas-based Snap Kitchen chain has opened nine outposts across the city, including two storefronts in the ’burbs — making it an accessible (and healthy!) grab-and-go staple for many Philadelphians. Unfortunately, this weekend brought news of two of Snap’s nine outposts closing their doors.

The Philadelphia Business Journal reports that the Washington Square West store (1109 Walnut Street) and the Fairmount store (1901 Callowhill Street — one of the first to open in Philly) are being consolidated with stores in Rittenhouse (1901 Chestnut Street) and Bella Vista (601 South 10th Street). The reason? Company officials point to the success of online ordering through Snap Kitchen’s app, which made them realize that some of their service areas overlapped.

For regulars of the now-closed locations, this may prove to be an inconvenience, as the merged locations are each a ten-minute-plus walk away. Might we suggest that if you can’t beat them, join them?
