Philly Is Getting a Robeks

Our friends over at Foobooz shared this morning that Philly is finally (finally!) getting a Robeks. The smoothie chain has over 100 locations across the country, but none of them are in Philly, if you can believe it. In fact, the closest one with in a 100-mile radius, according to, is in Anapolis. As in, Maryland! This is utter craziness, considering how much we Philadelphians love our smoothies.

In any case, Robeks is at long last putting roots down right here in Center City. The exactly location is yet to be disclosed, but they’re pegging March as the open date. And after that, expect them to crop up like weeds: There are 37 Robeks locations planned for Philly and the surrounding ‘burbs in the coming months and years.

Sporting Club at the Bellevue Adds a Juice Bar

fueling-stationJuice bars are definitely having a moment. We’ve personally been impressed by the flavorful juices at South Street’s Sip N Glo Juicery and the friendly service at Sansom Street’s Yellow Juice Bar. Next up is the Fueling Station in the Sporting Club at the Bellevue. The juice and smoothie bar is open to members and non-members alike. The Fueling Station also offers breakfast bites, La Colombe coffee and sandwiches and wraps.

The juice bar opens on Tuesday, September 3rd and Restaurant Impossible’s Robert Irvine will also be on hand, promoting his new protein bars.
