If you’re not familiar with Meghan Baroody’s delicious ‘meggrolls’, you take an egg roll, add creative fillings like Buffalo chicken or mac n’ cheese, fry until crisp-and-gooey.
On Thursday, the food truck operator-turned-caterer announced more about her brick-and-mortar concept. The 25-seat shop will open in Old Town, Alexandria in April 2017 in the former home of Five Guys.
In an email to customers, Meghan wrote:
So many amazing things have happened since Meggrolls reached its Kickstarter campaign goal last Valentine’s Day, just one year ago.
After an exciting, action-packed 2016, my business partner Alex and I are pumped to make this year even more memorable.
On February 1st, we received the keys to our new home at 107 N. Fayette St. in Old Town, Alexandria (the old Five Guys), and the transformation has already commenced!
We could not be more thrilled with how the shop is coming together– Lookin’ sharp!
And if things continue to move along smoothly, we’ll be ready to open the doors in April– so exciting!
The city and the small business community of Old Town have shown us so much support– we already feel like we are a part of the family.
We simply can’t wait to bring something unique and special to the city of Alexandria, and I’m so excited and proud to be raising my business here in my hometown.
Thanks for all of your support!
