Nutella Dessert Pizza at Snap Custom Pizza

Since we rolled out our Fast Casual Tracker late last year to track the hot fast-casual concepts coming out of Philadelphia we’ve seen a whirlwind of activity. Of course there was the announcement that Urban Outfitters purchased Marc Vetri’s restaurants but also the ambitious plans of Snap Custom Pizza and Honeygrow’s continued growth.

We’ve recently updated the tracker and also made some changes, for one a concept has to have at least a second location announced before it is added (sorry Buena Onda and Scratch Biscuit).

Original Honeygrow to Close for Upgrades

Honeygrow's original location will close for 5-6 weeks.

Honeygrow’s original location will close for 5-6 weeks.

When you open seven fast casual stir-fry and salad spots in four years, you learn some things along the way. That has been the case for Honeygrow and now their original location at 110 South 16th Street is showing its age. So they will be closing the location for 5-6 weeks at the end of the month to upgrade the kitchens, update the kiosks and improve the flow of service which clearly was an issue when the popular lunch spot was crowded. The closure will also allow Honeygrow to prepare the space for additional technology updates that are coming later this year.

Fast-Casual Update: News from HipCityVeg and Honeygrow

Here's Honeygrow | Renderings/Video via JBGR Retail

We debuted our Fast Casual Tracker with the news that Urban Outfitters had purchased Marc Vetri’s restaurant empire. It was clear that the big piece of the deal was Pizzeria Vetri and the pizza concept debuted at number one. But we have a shakeup as it is impossible to ignore the traction Honeygrow is getting in the crowded fast-casual marketplace. November saw Honeygrow open in University City. Another college campus location is right around the corner as the company prepares to open on the University of Delaware’s campus in Newark, DE. Honeygrow will also be featured in King of Prussia’s Town Center project and it has been recently reported they are opening their first Virginia location. That’s ten open and announced locations since mid-2012.
