Food Hall: A New Place to Enjoy and Relax
At the heart of the Riverwalk store is a first-of-its-kind food hall, The Kitchen. The food-forward space offers high-quality Mexican cuisine, soup and salads, premium sushi, plus made-to-order sandwiches, flatbread pizzas, hot foods, and gelato, bringing together multiple cuisines and vendor brands underneath one umbrella. Working with GIANT, we refined the operational process of ordering and payment and developed a signage and menu board system to navigate shoppers through the queuing and ordering process.
Rich in natural light, thanks to its floor-to-ceiling windows, the food hall offers a spacious area to safely enjoy a meal overlooking the Schuylkill River, 30th Street Station, and the riverside bike path. A self-serve tap wall in the Gather area offers more than 40 craft beers, wines, hard seltzer, cider, and kombucha and serves as a backdrop to the beer hall lounge and dining area to accommodate both the lunch crowd and after-hours socializing. In addition, customers can also enjoy food and drink from the food hall and store on a picturesque terrace, complete with lounge-style furniture and fire pits.
“Working with The GIANT Company, we set out to create a one-stop destination for all things food. Customers have the freedom to shop how they want, whether that’s a leisurely shopping trip, quick grab and go, or pick up from an online order. The flagship symbolizes a commitment to be a community partner and serve customers in the best way possible.”
