Expansion Is Underway for SEOULSPICE

From our friends at SEUOLSPICE...

Eric Shin, owner of SEOULSPICE, is pleased to announce the expansion of his healthy Korean comfort food concept with three new locations scheduled to open later this year. Founded in 2016, Shin opened his flagship location in the NoMa neighborhood of Washington, DC and expanded with additional locations in Tenleytown and College Park, Maryland, opening the following year. SEOULSPICE offers Korean-style rice bowls, kimbap burritos (Korritos), japchae noodle bowls, and salads showcasing original recipes from the Shin family, some of which have been passed down for generations.

The first of SEOULSPICE’s three new locations is scheduled to open in May 2021 at the Westfield Montgomery Mall Food Court (next to Chipotle.) Shin has also signed a lease for more than 2,000-square-feet of space at 439 7th Street, NW,  across the street from Jaleo, which is scheduled for completion in July 2021. The design of this location has been reimagined as a response to COVID. Guests can anticipate open stadium seating to give a feeling of freedom along with an updated design that showcases the vibrancy of Korean food and culture. A third 1,000-square-feet concept, which will serve primarily for carryout and delivery, is also scheduled for October 2021 at the International Place building, located at 1735 N Lynn Street in Arlington, Virginia. John Gogos of Papadopoulos Properties represented SEOULSPICE in the real estate transactions.

“We are thrilled to announce the addition of three new locations to better serve our community,” says Eric Shin, owner of SEOULSPICE. “Each location was selected to adapt our concept into a variety of retail settings: a mall food court, a small take-out hub, and a location that reimagines the fast-casual experience in response to COVID-19. We will continue selling at-home Korean BBQ kits so our customers can enjoy our quality ingredients and prepared sides, along with a Korean butane gas grill for preparing a traditional Korean BBQ meal at home as the pandemic continues.”
