RESTAURANT FAQs

What is honeygrow?

We are the original “create-your-own” stir-fry, salad, + honeybar specialists. Everything is fully customizable, thanks to our proprietary touchscreen technology. We feature local + seasonal produce whenever we can. From sustainably raised meats to our sauces + dressings, our Culinary Team ensures every ingredient shines. Though we got our start in Philadelphia in 2012, we are committed to connecting with every community we serve in meaningful + sustainable ways. 


How was honeygrow started?

Our founder, Justin Rosenberg, came up with the idea in 2009 while working full-time and getting his MBA at Temple. He left his day job with the dream of creating a place with colorful, dynamic, customizable options that would fill a gap he discovered by going vegan at the time. He took his business plan to 93 investors before the 94th one gave him a chance.  On June 8, 2012, our 16th Street location opened and we currently have 26 total locations from Boston to DC.

 

Where does the name “honeygrow” come from?

honeygrow is a play on the phrase “honest eating + growing local” — the phrase succinctly illustrates our commitment to providing the freshest food possible, while working with local purveyors + partners whenever possible. The "growing local" aspect extends into our community activations + partnerships, where we work alongside like-minded businesses to improve each community we call home.

 

What does "honest eating + growing local" mean?

This is our primary tagline.  The name honeygrow is derived from a play on these words. It means we are committed to sourcing as locally and as seasonally as possible. It means we are committed to giving back to the local communities that we are a part of as much as possible. This ‘honest’ approach extends into how we present the brand—with as much transparency as possible. We ‘tell it like it is’ because everyone deserves the truth.


Does honeygrow franchise?

No, we are not a franchise as we own and operate all of our own locations. We prefer to ensure the highest quality possible across all of our locations and strive to truly connect and engage with every community we enter.

 

What are the hours of operation?

Hours vary from store to store and can be found on the locations section of our website.

 

Does honeygrow deliver?

Yes, we offer delivery! Order delivery on our app or online ordering page and earn honeygrow rewards! If you are out of delivery radius on our app, we are also on DoorDash, Uber Eats, GrubHub, Postmates, and Caviar (where available) if you are out of our delivery radius to bring delicious stir fry and salads right to your door.

Where can I find honeygrow nutritional information?

Our nutrition information can be found on the “Menu” or "Contact" pages of our website.

 

Do honeygrow products contain peanuts?

Our restaurants do not carry peanuts or peanut products at any time. Our founder’s family member is highly allergic, so honeygrow recipes were built to exclude all peanut products.

 

What gluten-free options are on the menu?

Our rice noodles and brown rice are all gluten-free bases for our stir-fry. A number of our delicious salads are also gluten-free. All gluten-free options are labeled with a “(GF)” on our menu.

 

What vegan options are on the menu?

Our rice noodles, brown rice, and whole wheat noodles are all vegan bases for our stir-fry. All vegan options are labeled with a “(V)” on our menu.

 

Star Wars or Star Trek?

Star Wars (sorry, Trekkies). May the Force be with you...and for god's sake, LET THE WOOKIE WIN!

 

Where do you source your ingredients?

This varies by each location and changes due to seasonality. We showcase a “local list” in each of our restaurants that outlines where all of our local produce comes from that season.

 

Where can I buy gift cards?

You can conveniently buy gift cards in any restaurant, on our app, or on our website. Visit our “Giftcard” page of our website for more information.

 

Do you have online ordering?

What types of fundraisers and donations does honeygrow support?

We aim to support organizations with a commitment to a similar mission of nourishing health, creativity and activity in our communities. We cannot support organizations that discriminate against a person or group on the basis of age, political affiliation, race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation or religious belief. We are unable to host fundraisers for organizations that fall into the following categories:

  • Individuals or individual study, travel and research grants
  • For-profit ventures
  • Religious groups for religious purposes
  • Capital campaigns, endowment funds or memorials
  • Lobbying or political activities 

*If your organization falls within our guidelines, you can apply to host a fundraiser with us via the “Contact Us” section of our website.

*Due to the number of requests received on a daily basis, we cannot fulfill all requests, but try our best to do so when possible. We do not provide monetary or unsolicited sponsorship donations at any time.


What is your animal welfare policy?

At honeygrow, we care about animals and believe that strong animal welfare policies are the cornerstone of any responsible restaurant. We are committed to holding our suppliers to the highest standards possible and ensuring that the food we’re serving comes from trusted sources. 

We are also committed to continuing to evaluate and improve our animal welfare standards. Thus, by 2024, we will source only chicken certified by Global Animal Partnership (GAP) and require all chickens to be processed in a manner that avoids live-dumping and live-shackling, and instead utilizes a pre-shackle, multi-step controlled-atmosphere processing system that is widely hailed as more humane.

We have prohibited the use of both gestation and farrowing crates by all of our pork suppliers.

In recognizing the importance of animal welfare, by 2025 we have committed to all the eggs in our supply chain coming from hens raised in cage-free environments.
