what is honeygrow?
we are the original “create-your-own” stir-fry, salad, honeybar + juice specialists. Everything is made from scratch and fully customizable (excluding our juices), thanks to our proprietary touchscreen ordering technology. We feature local + seasonal produce whenever we can. We visit nearby farms to ensure the highest quality products. We are transparent about what we’re serving and where it’s sourced. From antibiotic and hormone-free proteins to our sauces + dressings prepared from scratch daily, our Culinary Director 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 22 total locations.
 
where does the name “honeygrow” come from?

what is “nourishing creativity”?
“nourishing creativity” grew out of the realization that honeygrow continuously fosters a space for innovation. From our employees to our guests, anyone who is a part of the honeygrow community has the opportunity to construct their own happy + healthy lifestyle. It starts with our employees nourishing creativity in their own roles. By perfecting the art of wok-ing, or developing new and creative ways to interact with our guests (hello split-flaps!), or showcasing local artists in each of our restaurants, we cultivate a culture of ingenuity in all that we do. But most importantly, we fuel creativity in our guests. We provide the right, wholesome ingredients, and they provide their own creativity. They fuel their mind and body with their custom honeygrow creation, and go out in the world ready to create their own happiness.
