Eataly Founder Teases US and Global Expansion Plans

Eataly is reportedly looking to expand to even more locations across the United States and around the world

Eataly's founder Oscar Farinetti has reportedly announced several more locations in the U.S. and across the globe.

The Eataly empire is rumored to be getting even bigger, with whispers of another location in New York City, and new Eataly locations headed to Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia.

Francine Segan, a New York-based food historian and cookbook author who frequently hosts events at Eataly, has reported on Twitter that Eataly founder Oscar Farinetti has announced plans for a location near the World Trade Center.

What’s more, Farinetti also foretold of Eataly locations for three other U.S. cities: Philadelphia, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C.

According to Segan, the superstore is also headed for international markets. 

According to Segan’s Twitter, Farinetti also noted that the expansion does not represent an Eataly chain and that “each store is unique.”

As of now, representatives for Eataly have yet to verify the additional locations and said of the World Trade Center location that “nothing has been confirmed yet.”
