We couldn't be more excited to announce the official opening of our fifth location in Wilmington, Delaware! Located on Concord Pike (aka Route 202) in the Market Square Shopping Center next to Trader Joe's. This is our first location in 'The First State.'
To celebrate today's Grand Opening, local District 2 Councilman, Bob Weiner kicked things off at our ribbon cutting ceremony.
hgWilmington is now open seven days a week, 11am-10pm.
Like our previous four locations, the Market Square location features local + sustainable materials. For the first of two Delaware locations opening this fall, hgWilmington features commissioned photography by Delaware resident Carlos Alejandro. We asked Carlos to capture lesser known angles and views of well-known northern Delaware landmarks and architectural elements. Presented in abstract croppings, the artwork graces our walls both as prints by Stockbridge Fine Art Print and as an entire mural near the entrance. The dining area features reclaimed wood stool tops by Fab Dubrunfaut and custom-made tables by Philadelphia Woodcraft. Like previous locations, the Wilmington store does not house a freezer as all product is procured and sold fresh. From housemade sauces + dressings to zero additives and the vegan, gluten-free Kale’atta smoothie, we accommodate even the most discerning palates and diets.
Following the Wilmington opening, three more locations are set to open before the end of the year. In addition to the already slated (and greatly anticipated) Hoboken location in North Jersey which will open later this month, we can't wait to open locations in Newark in the heart of the University of Delaware campus (58 E. Main St., Newark, DE 19711) and on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania, on Walnut Street across from the Wharton graduate school (3731 Walnut St., Philadelphia, PA 19104).
By the end of the year, we'll have a total of eight restaurants! It's been an amazing journey so far, and we know it's only just begun! If you don't already, follow us on Twitter, Instagram + Facebook for the latest updates!
