ShopRite getting into the restaurant game

0 comments

Wegmans and Whole Foods have been carving out space in their supermarkets for small beer- and wine-focused restaurants.

Now a smaller grocer is catching on. The Brown family - which owns 10 ShopRite stores in the Philly region - is in the beginning stages of a plan to open a restaurant in its store in Norriton Square, on Germantown Pike at Route 202 in East Norriton Township, Montgomery County. The company recently applied for a liquor license.

Don't prepare to bend an elbow quite yet. Sandy Brown says the restaurant, which will serve craft beer, needs to be designed. It will be part of a large renovation at the store and won't open for at least a year.

More immediately, the Browns are prepping their 11th market, due to open in June at the former Tasty Baking plant on Fox Street.
