The newest opening is particularly meaningful to the honeygrow team. For years, they were part of the vibrant Fishtown community with their corporate offices located at 1601 N Front Street which also included a Test Kitchen.
When the company announced they were moving headquarters to Center City this summer, hundreds of Fishtown neighbors wrote in asking them to stay. When the opportunity to open at Fishtown Crossings arose, founder Justin Rosenberg and his team didn’t hesitate to jump on it.
Fishtown has long been a part of honeygrow not only for the company, but for its founder as well. From interning for Judge William Lederer 17 years ago to training in jiu jitsu at Balance Studios in the mornings, Justin is excited to continue to grow roots within the community.
“We were really blessed to be well received within the community when we had our location on Front Street, so we knew we had to figure out a way to make it back. This new spot allows us to have additional parking, more dine-in space, and operationally is better designed for our team. For me personally, it was important to remain a part of the community – from rolling with my crew at Balance Studios to grabbing my slice at Shackamaxon – Fishtown is now part of my / our DNA and history, and I’m proud to still be a part of the neighborhood.” — Justin Rosenberg, Founder & CEO at honeygrow
