Philadelphia, PA - CAVA, the Washington, DC-based Mediterranean fast-casual restaurant, as well as culinary brand, today announced it would open two restaurants in the Philadelphia area in 2019. The first, slated to open early winter 2019, will be located at 1713 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103, and the second location will open summer 2019 in Suburban Square at 40 Coulter Ave, Ardmore, PA 19003.
The day before doors officially open, CAVA will invite the neighborhood to come in for community lunch - a tradition that started with the very first restaurant opening back in 2011, but is rooted in the heritage of the founders. “Sharing a meal was part of our culture and how we welcomed our new neighbors growing up,” said Co-Founder Ted Xenohristos. The community will be able to join CAVA for free lunch from 11 AM to 1 PM and free dinner from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM before opening day.
