ROCKVILLE, Md. (September 26, 2016) – Whole Foods Market is pleased to announce partnerships with four Philadelphia chef restaurateurs who will be bringing their culinary talents to the new Rodin Square store, set to open on Friday, Oct.14, 2016. These in-store venues, inside Philadelphia’s largest and most innovative Whole Foods Market, will offer customers an expansive “must-taste” dining destination with globally and locally inspired flavors.

“The Philadelphia food scene is among the most robust and vibrant in the country,” said Jesse Morgans, prepared foods coordinator for the mid-Atlantic region. “To make this store reflect the local community’s passion, we knew we had to bring some of the city’s exceptional culinary talent inside Whole Foods Market. These partners allow us to offer an amazing range of diverse, forward-thinking menus, all under one roof.”

Along with these venues, the store will feature theatre-style kitchens preparing extensive Whole Foods Market offerings ranging from sushi and smoked meats to organic salads and Neapolitan pizzas. The store will have two full pubs, a mobile cocktail cart, a gourmet coffee bar and a juice bar.  All can be enjoyed in the 140-seat food hall.
