Restaurants to Create 600 Jobs in Manhattan
ATLANTA (May 21, 2018) —Since opening our first locally owned restaurant in Midtown Manhattan nearly three years ago, we’ve employed more than 1,000 New Yorkers, donated nearly 20,000 pounds of food to New York’s homeless population, given thousands in college scholarships to New York students, and served the millions of customers who have walked through our doors. We are always looking for new locations to continue serving New York City customers, and we’re excited to share three new Manhattan locations at 918 8th Avenue (Midtown), 700 6th Avenue (Flatiron District) and 711 Lexington Avenue (Midtown East).
We look forward to serving our future guests when these restaurants open in late 2018 and early 2019.
