Boston, a FOODWORKS city, is steeped in history and tradition. Charming colonial-era cobblestone streets lead you through historic neighborhoods and around landmarks such as Faneuil Hall. Harvard University and other iconic institutions stand proud. Fenway Park is as old-school Americana as its nickname, “America’s Most Beloved Ballpark,” suggests. But beyond the Federal-style façade of its landmark buildings and stately townhomes, the city boasts a food scene that surprises and delights around every corner, providing a wealth of inspiration for us at FOODWORKS.
Seafood is one of the first things that come to mind when you think “Boston,” but it definitely isn’t the last. “The restaurant scene in Boston has entered a new golden age,” a Boston Magazine headline declared—and that’s welcome news for FOODWORKS fans. There are ethnic enclaves to explore such as the North End, Boston’s Little Italy. There are historic public markets and food halls to tour. There are legends like No. 9 Park to check off your bucket list, and an ever-growing number of new-kid casual spots offering eclectic menus, such as Bueno Malo, a FOODWORKS partner. Craft beer is alive and well in Boston as are classic steakhouses. The city is host to one of the nation’s longest-running food and wine festivals. And let’s not forget Union Oyster House, America’s oldest restaurant dating to 1826, and the countless delicious renditions of lobster rolls and clam chowder you can find all around town. The best part? Our FOODWORKS restaurant partners offer a taste of this and more.
“FOODWORKS struck us as an interesting concept because we’ve been trying to grow for so many years now. People ask us all the time about opening up another location, but the timing hasn’t worked out. So when FOODWORKS presented this to us, I was like, ‘Wow, we can go into these different locations and serve our food without having to open an actual store.’”
“For FOODWORKS to reach out to us and offer us this opportunity as a small business, to come into their cafes and be a part of what’s going on with downtown Detroit, that's been a blessing.”
“FOODWORKS is great to work with. They make it very easy, from setting up to payment. It’s just a no-brainer, and Shannon [Kubina, general manager for FOODWORKS in Detroit] is amazing to work with.”
“Outside of the additional revenue, FOODWORKS has given us marketing exposure. We've gotten catering opportunities from just one week of doing a pop-up. That's exactly the exposure I was looking for in our second year of being open.”
“FOODWORKS has an expansive network, so we try to go to as many locations as possible. You’re able to reach a different base of people, which is always great for business.”
“FOODWORKS cares about my profitability. They ask me, ‘How much do you need to make to make this work for you?’ I know my break-even point and they’ve been so cognizant of that, putting us in locations where we’ve blown that number out of the water several times over. It feels like a true partnership.
I can’t emphasize enough how understanding they are. You have to be, otherwise small businesses are never going to gain visibility. FOODWORKS doesn’t compromise on the quality of restaurants they work with, but at the same time, they’re super flexible. That balance is hard to come by.
Our second brick-and-mortar location is due in no small part to our relationship with FOODWORKS.”
“With FOODWORKS, we saw an opportunity to work in a professional kitchen with professional chefs. It’s about learning every aspect of the food industry, and it’s helped us better serve our customers’ needs at our food truck.”
“You’ve gotta generate buzz. You’ve gotta get people genuinely excited about what you’re doing, and that’s what FOODWORKS does. They’re all about bringing local flavor to downtown Detroit.”
“FOODWORKS has been the perfect opportunity for us, especially in the summertime. Normally, restaurants in Arizona drop 10 to 15 percent in business due to the heat, but we haven’t had that this year at all… I sell out of my signature Crispy Garlic Chicken every time. It doesn’t matter how much I bring. And I can see sales of that dish increase at my restaurant.”
