Food Alley > Food Court
Salt Lake City will soon have what you seek. Sapa Investment Group is developing Food Alley, which will have space for 17 restaurants. In a recent press release, Mai Nguyen, CEO of Sapa Investment Group said,
“Not only is there a need, but a want for a place like Food Alley. People need diverse places to eat, a community where they can gather and interact, and Food Alley will be an ideal destination to gather, socialize and enjoy food and arts that people in Utah may not have access to elsewhere.”
According to KUTV, the Nguyen family is credited with bringing Food Alley to fruition. The family opened up the first Pho restaurant in Salt Lake City and now owns five different businesses throughout the Salt Lake Valley. The family says their successful restaurant background, international research, vision and an innovative business model make a recipe for success for Food Alley.
Food Alley will be a 48,000-square foot building that is scheduled to open in early 2019 at the corner of State Street and 800 South.
KSL confirms that several restaurants are already committed to spaces in the development, including an Italian restaurant, sushi bar, ramen shop and a beer bar. It also will have “pop-up” space for chefs who are traveling through Utah and want to showcase their work for a limited time. Also included will be 21 artist loft apartments on the second level of Food Alley.
Food Alley is a $10 million investment that officials say could bring 700 jobs to Salt Lake City, the statement said.
