You may have heard about our new store concept, 365 by Whole Foods Market. Well, one of the things that'll make 365 unique is our Friends program. That's where you come in.
We're looking for innovative businesses like yours to set up shop inside our 365 stores (okay, in some cases, outside on the patio). By combining our strengths and yours — plus a whole horde of like-minded shoppers — we'll create that all-important synergy that grows businesses. We'll also have a super cool hang.
Last year, we set out to find some Friends. We asked applicants to submit a 2-3 minute video introducing their restaurant, retail or service concept. We opened it up for a public vote on our website in early November. Then, we narrowed things down to the concepts that best fit our vision for the Friends of 365 program. Finalists were selected and store specific pitches were submitted. Now, we're ready to begin announcing our Friends.
Let's work together.
Friends of 365 is an opportunity for creative entrepreneurs to operate within our stores and connect with our community. Whether you're into fast-casual food service, breakthrough retail (body care products, clothing, shoes, housewares, pet, etc.) or cool street services (barber shop, knife sharpening, bike shop, fitness) — if you've got a thriving business ready to go all the way live, we want to hear from you.
ESquared Hospitality is pleased to announce that by CHLOE. will join 365 by Whole Foods Market as our first partner in the Friends of 365 in-store program. by CHLOE. will be part of the inaugural 365 location to open in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles, marking the popular plant-based, fast-casual brand’s first location outside of New York City.
by CHLOE. will feature its own space within our store, offering a core menu of items reflective of the flagship by CHLOE. location in NYC, accented with seasonal LA-influenced Market Specials.
