Retail hardships are nothing new. But now, retailers in the food industry have a different story and are thriving amid the pandemic. We're sharing three businesses within the food industry expanding this year in New Hampshire.
Starting in 2019, Salem, New Hampshire, began building a 2.8 million square foot area for a mixed-use project.
Michael Powers, senior vice president of leasing for Tuscan Brands, said following "Tuscan Village will be a large-scale project, designed to create a hub for the surrounding community. Medical office and retail use play heavily into that role."
One of those areas that will be present is food retailers. This year alone, big-name retailers like Chipotle, Starbucks, and Dunkin' Donuts have already announced that they're adding a location to the village. Along with Tuscan Market, Tuscan Kitchen, Pressed Cafe, and The Beach Plum, there are plenty of opportunities to grow the Retail Industry here.
Whole Foods started as a small shop in the 1980s in Austin, Texas.
Now there are currently 476 store locations in the United States, and 41 additional stores in development, one of those in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
With a focus on selling natural and organic foods, they are committed to the quality of their food.
As a family-owned business, the New Hampshire Donut Company is a made-to-order doughnut and specialty coffee bar.
Whether you're looking to try something new or to customize your donut creation, you can find it here.
They're currently adding their second location at Capital Plaza in downtown Concord, New Hampshire, later this year.
As this year continues to fill with unknowns, let's remember to help and support small businesses where we can. No matter how big or small, it can make a positive change for the better- allowing them to survive this pandemic too.
