The owners of Founding Farmers eatery are expanding from the nation’s capital for the first time by opening a King of Prussia location this fall, writes Kenneth Hilario for Philadelphia Business Journal.
Founding Farmers has moved into a 14,046-square-feet space on two floors in King of Prussia Town Center opposite Paladar Latin Kitchen & Rum Bar. The new restaurant will employ around 200 people and will be a pilot model for the company’s future business growth.
The Montgomery County location is unique among the Farmers Restaurant Group’s portfolio of restaurants. The first floor will house the brand’s First Bake Café & Creamery. This will serve bagels, doughnuts, coffee, milkshakes, ice cream and other treats. The second level will house the Founding Farmers restaurant.
King of Prussia’s Founding Farmers will also be the first to have a retail bakery, creamery, and a full floor dedicated to the First Bake Café & Creamery concept.
“This level of commitment to a retail bakery is my largest, and it’s the first big step toward a retail bakery, and being that neighborhood bakery in addition to being a neighborhood restaurant,” said Dan Simons, cofounder of Farmers Restaurant Group.
