Local Kitchens, a micro food hall chain offering a diverse mix of award-winning restaurants under one roof, has opened the doors to its newest location in Los Gatos, Calif. This opening marks Local Kitchens’ sixth store within the greater Bay Area and seventh overall.
Local Kitchens licenses recipes from restaurant brands to offer guests a wide variety of cuisines under one roof in what it dubs “a micro food hall for the digital age.”
The Los Gatos Local Kitchens, will feature seven restaurant partners – The Melt, Senor Sisig, Sushirrito, The Plant, Proposition Chicken, SAJJ Mediterranean and Rooster and Rice – and plans on adding additional concepts soon.
“Our goal for 2022 is all about expansion and bringing Local Kitchens to even more local neighborhoods around the Bay Area as an immediate focus,” says Jon Goldsmith, CEO and co-founder of Local Kitchens. “We chose Los Gatos because of its wonderful family-friendly community atmosphere and are thrilled to bring them these popular and beloved brands from across the Bay Area. We cannot wait to start getting to know the community and to celebrate with all of our new neighbors at the community celebration on June 18th!”
Goldsmith founded Local Kitchens with COO Andrew Munday (his former DoorDash colleague) and CTO Jordan Bramble. Goldsmith and Munday saw the impact that the pandemic had on local restaurants firsthand at DoorDash and wanted to use their experience to help restaurants survive and thrive during an unprecedented time and into the future. The entrepreneurs set out to transform the food hall experience into a convenient and compact store, allowing guests to mix and match cuisines from different restaurant concepts in a single order for dine-in, takeout and delivery. Each new location will feature 5 to 10 local concepts and offer convenient online and mobile ordering. With the Los Gatos opening, Local Kitchens currently operates six locations in the Bay Area, in Palo Alto, Mountain View, Cupertino, Lafayette, San Jose and Los Gatos as well as one location in the Sacramento area, in Roseville. They have plans to open in Davis, Calif., and Campbell, Calif., in July.
