A forgotten Subway store on South Street will soon breathe new life as Philadelphia's newest location of doughnuts-and-fried-chicken haven Federal Donuts.
The Philadelphia-based business has long secured a footprint throughout the city since first opening its doors in Northern Liberties in 2011. Since then, shops in Center City, University City, Citizens Bank Park, and elsewhere have cemented the shop as a Philly foodie essential. The South Street shop will be its seventh location.
The South Street space has been empty for a while, after housing a Subway and, most recently, a cellphone store. It's owned by Midwood Investment & Development, Eater reported.
"For generations, South Street has played a part in so many Philadelphia stories,” Cook said in a press release. “Immigrants, artists, activists, and students have all found a home along this unique stretch of the city. Federal Donuts is honored to become a part of this story for the next generation.”
