Federal Donuts Considers Seventh and Fairmount


Thursday evening, Federal Donuts made a presentation to the West Poplar CDC regarding a Federal Donuts location at 701 Fairmount Avenue. Steve Cook tells us this is a long way from a done deal as there is still “some zoning and other hurdles to get through.” But if it comes together, the biggest Federal Donuts yet will land in the West Poplar, Liberties West area of the city. And though it may seem an odd spot to some, we can’t help but notice it is just a block off of the proposed Reading Viaduct park.

    I can’t imagine that an unfunded proposal is the basis for a new location of federal doughnuts. 701 fairmount has plentiful parking

    Hey FedNuts, how about Old City? We have one or five existing vacant food uses right about now.

    That crappy location will fold just as fast as that poorly planned location at 2nd and Federal.

    • Gus

      if by just as fast you mean still open after 2 years

    They should open in SNJ like vetri and Garces. Would be good at Moorestown.
