Price Chopper has a new idea: 16 separate in-store dining opportunities

By Food Forum staff
Friday, October 5, 2012

Price Chopper says it will add 10,000 square feet to its Latham Supercenter to create a new concept in supermarket shopping.

For foodies, here are the important parts of the chain’s announcement today:

The most notable new feature will be a multi-faceted, full-service culinary offer in the form of 16 themed, fast-casual/cooked-fresh-to-order dining experiences, accompanied by in-store seating for 140 guests and seasonal outdoor seating. Among the moderately priced dining areas will be a Ben & Bill’s NYC-Style deli; a Chef’s Grill where a variety of specialty dishes — from steak to mussels to seafood to antipasto — will be prepared fresh for each guest; a Mexican themed restaurant featuring international flavors; a classic pizzeria, a meat rotisserie offering succulent pork and beef, in addition to poultry; an old-fashioned sub shop; a New England style fish fry restaurant, and a full-service salad and vegetarian/vegan bar, just to name a few. Other specialty restaurant concepts still being finalized will be unveiled in the coming months.

Also planned are a complete cooking school in which local/regional and national chefs and specialty instructors will teach recipes, techniques, trends and meal solutions for classes, parties and special events, the growing and harvesting of some fresh produce right in the store, and the building of a drive-through pharmacy.

A full story will appear in Saturday's print editions.
