Katz’s Delicatessen has been serving the New York City food scene for 129 years, but now has its sights set on going global. The deli announced that it’s launching a worldwide shipping facility that will allow consumers around the globe a chance to try its famous pastramis.[related]
Katz’s began shipping its products in the United States in the ‘90s, with the number of mail orders increasing up to 12,000 every year, Jake Dell, owner of the deli, told The Wall Street Journal, but with the brand expansion, the deli can expect even more.
The 30,000-square-foot shipping center will be located in Hackensack, New Jersey, and is set to open within the next few months, WSJ reported. The company also previously announced that its Brooklyn location will reside in the DeKalb Market Hall and is slated to open early June.
The deli is also considering expanding to other locations outside of New York, with Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and Boston being a few cities on its radar; however, Dell told WSJ that a mail-order business might be a better way to grow the brand.
