Everytable, a mission-driven food company that fights for food justice by making fresh, delicious food accessible and affordable for all, will open the first of three storefronts in Long Beach on Monday, May 3, at Aero Long Beach, a 50-acre, master-planned business park near the Long Beach Airport and managed by Kilroy Realty. Everytable has also signed leases in Long Beach at 421 West Broadway and 1001 E. Pacific Coast Highway.
The new grab-and-go storefront, located at 3750 Kilroy Airport Way, Suite 100 Long Beach, CA 90806 will offer an ever-expanding variety of chef-made, nutritious and affordable meals including bowls, salads, wraps, snacks and beverages including cold-pressed juices, with prices starting at $5.00. This storefront will also offer Everytable’s new full-service coffee program featuring Crenshaw Coffee in partnership with Los Angeles, Black-owned establishment Hot & Cool Cafe. Guests will also be able to order from Everytable’s convenient and flexible meal subscription program and either pick up their meals at the Aero Long Beach location, or have their meals delivered to their home each week.
“This first storefront in Long Beach is an important milestone for Everytable and one that represents the beginning of our expansion throughout Southern California in 2021,” says Sam Polk, CEO, Everytable. “Now more than ever, as food insecurity and food deserts persist throughout the country, fresh and nutritious food must be made affordable for everyone. America’s farms have the capacity to produce more than enough food, but we must reinvent our country’s food system so anybody has access to the food they need to survive and thrive.”
This year, Everytable is on a path to open 20 locations and expand beyond its current footprint in Los Angeles County into the Inland Empire and Orange County. This growth will allow Everytable to offer its popular and affordable subscription and delivery program in those regions in addition to its burgeoning institutional services offerings including SmartFridge installations and medically tailored meals.
Everyable also recently launched a pioneering Social Equity Franchise program to foster economic empowerment among entrepreneurs from marginalized communities. Serving as a model approach to franchising, a system largely devoid of diversity and representation by people of color, the new program will provide critical access to capital for qualifying graduates plus in-depth, hands-on training to empower and prepare disenfranchised entrepreneurs to open Everytable restaurants in their own communities.
The new Long Beach storefront will eventually be awarded to a franchisee candidate who has successfully progressed through Everytable University, a no-cost, 6- to 12-month management training program that provides candidates with the education they need to successfully own and operate their own Everytable.
