The self-described healthier-fast-causal chain is bringing its first shop to the Philadelphia area. B.good is looking to open five locations in the Philadelphia area, starting with Marlton, NJ tomorrow, June 26th.

B.good offers fresh products – house-ground burgers and sandwiches, kale and quinoa bowls, vegetable burgers, smoothies and more – using healthy ingredients from local producers. Deb Lutz, a Philadelphia native and the woman behind the local expansion said “b.good serves food you can feel good about eating, even though it’s served fast.”

The shop is teaming up with Sunday Suppers, a non-profit, for its charity event on Sunday, July 13th from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. B.good will donate proceeds from $5 meals to the non-profit. Sunday Suppers works to “strengthen the health and well-being of families through the transformative power of family meals.”

B.good will be located at The Promenade at Sagemore, 500 Route 73 South in Marlton, NJ. No other locations have been finalized as of yet.

Retail Roundup: Uniqlo Will Open a Second Location

The boutique's new location at Liberty Place.

Interior of Joan Shepp’s pop-up at Liberty Place. She’s now chosen a new permanent location for her store.

New: Joan Shepp
Longstanding boutique Joan Shepp opted for a pop-up store after her departure from her original Walnut Street location – and it seems the change may have done some good. Her newfound home is just a few blocks away at 1811 Chestnut Street. Once a mattress store, the simple exterior conceals an inner space with some potential, including a supposedly great staircase.
