Eager to stay ahead of the dining-inside-the-grocery-store trend, Whole Foods Dublin is opening “The Local” today, an in-store gastropub concept where customers can enjoy a drink or a bar snack before, after or during their shopping.
“We’re always looking to provide an innovative and special experience for our customers,” said Tiffany Smith, Marketing Team Leader at Whole Foods Market Dublin. “In-store dining venues create a good energy and are the best way for us to celebrate food.”
The Local features twelve draft beers including regional drinks from The Columbus Brewing Company, The Rivertown Brewing Company in Cincinnati, The Elevator Brewing Company and others from Ohio, Michigan and Kentucky. The Local will also serve wine and Brother’s Drake mead on tap.
The menu at the new in-store restaurant will feature locally inspired upscale bar snacks, an all-organic coffee bar and other seasonal and speciality options.
