Attention, Vegans! HipCityVeg Closing Rittenhouse Location for Renovations

Don't worry: It's only temporary.

If you break out in hives at just the idea of surviving a workweek without at least one of HipCityVeg’s Curry Tofu Wraps to comfort you (so. Freakin’. Delicious.), you’ll want to pay attention and adjust your lunch schedule accordingly: The vegan fast-food spot’s Rittenhouse location, the OG outpost, will be closing temporarily for renovations starting October 30th. Don’t worry, though: Their other two locations, at 121 South Broad Street in Midtown Village and 214 South 40th Street in University City, will remain open.

As owner Nicole Marquis said in a press release, “When I was opening HipCityVeg five years ago, I painted the walls myself, put in the tile myself, bought appliances on sale. I didn’t have the means to make it as nice as I wanted. Because of our amazing, loyal community, I am now able to transform the place to what it should be — a much fresher look for customers and easier operation for the employees.” 

They’re hoping the sprucing up of the Rittenhouse location will be wrapped up, with doors opening back up, by mid-November. So we repeat: Until then, adjust your lunch plans accordingly.
