Micro food hall Local Kitchens is planning to expand throughout the Bay Area and Northern California. According to a recent press release, the food hall will add two new locations in the Bay Area: in Novato at 880 De Long Avenue and in San Bruno at 851 Cherry Avenue, Suite 2.
For readers unfamiliar with Local Kitchens’ “Micro Food Hall” model, it differs from traditional food halls by offering “convenient takeout, delivery, and dine-in from a variety of restaurant brands, available online, in the app, or at a kiosk in-store.”
The press release shares that there will be “a unique mix of 5-10 popular restaurants made fresh to order within a single store.” It’s unclear which eateries Local Kitchens will partner with for Novato and San Bruno, but existing locations in the Bay Area, the Sacramento Metropolitan Area, and Orange County feature restaurants like Curry Up Now, Homeroom, Sushirrito, and The Melt.
“It’s a great privilege to join these five new cities in the coming months,” says Jon Goldsmith, CEO and co-founder of Local Kitchens.
The upcoming outposts are slated to open throughout winter and spring 2023. For additional updates, follow Local Kitchens on Instagram and Facebook.
How is Local Kitchens still in business, let alone expanding? I went to the one in Palo Alto once and the food from The Chairman was so different (in a bad way) from what I frequently get at the food truck that I actually threw one of the buns away. After that experience I have never gone back.
