SPOT Burger is raising money for a brick-and-mortar location of the popular food truck near or on Drexel’s campus. This weekend, owner Joshua Kim teased what the non-wheeled version of SPOT might look like.
Kim’s GoFundMe campaign continues and for every dollar you donate, you can redeem it in free food once the new SPOT opens.

The highly praised Spot Burger cart by Josh Kim has launched a $75,000 GoFundMe campaign in order to raise money for a brick-and-mortar location for the cart that normally hangs out around Drexel’s campus.
According to Kim, Spot Burger has “caught the attention of a retail developer, and we have been given the opportunity of a full restaurant in the Drexel Campus/Mantua area.”
Since coming on the scene in early 2012, Kim has received lots of praise including a 2014 Best of Philly award for Best Cheesesteak.
GoFundMe is a bit different than the better known Kickstarter, all GoFundMe campaigns have no deadlines or goal requirements and no penalties for missing your goal. So all donations are received by the person offering the fundraising campaign.

Chef Georgeann Leaming of Northern Liberties’ Suppa will be on Chopped this evening. Tune into the Food Network at 10 p.m. to see the Philadelphia chef.
Check out the Food Network’s description of the show.
In the first basket, the fryer gets pretty crowded as the chefs race to make crispy chicken wings, and the chefs are challenged to make African peri peri rub work in their dishes. Then in the entree round, a difficult cut of meat and a salty sandwich spread are among the mandatory ingredients. And will either finalist decide to bake a pie from the pie dough in the dessert basket?
