What was once a 40,000-square-foot warehouse location of the Restaurant Depot chain on Ridge Avenue in Manayunk will soon be a 73,000-square-foot stand-alone location right next to Bakers Centre, aka the old Tastykake site. Though the Restaurant Depot isn’t officially part of Bakers Centre (now under construction), it will benefit from the proximity, so it’s being cross-marketed.
Until now, the Depot has been hard to access, says its owners, but this new siting will be at street level. The move is another marker of growth for Bakers Centre, which will be anchored by a Brown’s Shop Rite. Manayunk was one of Restaurant Depot’s first site’s in the country.
