Everytable is an ambitious food vendor that is on a mission to transform America’s food system, providing everyone with fresh and nutritious cuisine no matter where they live. Founded in 2013 by entrepreneur Sam Polk, Everytable began as an opportunity to help South LA families in need of access to high-quality food options.

Sam had been working most of his life as a a hedge fund trader, and established a nonprofit called Feast to address food-related health problems in South LA, where the average income is $13,000 a year and the life expectancy is 10 years below the national average. Sam’s experience with Feast exposed him to the reality of food deserts in the neighborhood, and he realized that no amount of field training or nutrition education could compensate for the fact that many of the families he was working with simply did not have access to the stores that provided fresh and nutritious options. Needing to address a far larger issue in the community, Sam established Everytable as the first step in bringing nutritious meals to underserved communities.

Everytable’s business model drastically reduces the costs of the standard restaurant model in an effort to provide high quality food at a fair and equitable price point. Everytable’s chefs create delicious meals at their local kitchen, which are then sold through Everytable’s small, grab-and-go storefronts. Everytable even prices their meals according to the neighborhoods they serve, ensuring that everyone can afford their offerings. Providing restaurant-quality nutrition with the pricing and convenience of fast food, Everytable is transforming the landscape of food service in America.

Less than a month ago, Sam launched Everytable’s first expansion onto the East Coast with three new locations in Chelsea and the East Village. Offering grab-and-go meals prepared from their new kitchen in the former Pfizer Industrial building in South Williamsburg, the new locations are an important step in bringing equitable food service to New York. While Polk has mentioned his intentions to open up more outposts in Manhattan, more information has now been revealed about Everytable’s next move.

The newest Everytable to open up in Manhattan is scheduled to arrive in Harlem at 457 West 125th Street. According to recently released leasing information, Everytable has struck a five-year lease for the space with Meridian Retail Leasing and SCG Retail. The location offers a total of 550 square feet of space, but thanks to Everytable’s centralized kitchen business model, the entirety of the space can be dedicated to serving affordable grab-and-go options. There is no need for a kitchen, so the space can be utilized much more efficiently than a standard restaurant.

According to Sam, plans are also in place to open an additional Harlem location, as well as another near City Hall and in the Financial district, with another location planned for Flatbush. While the specific details of those spaces are still forthcoming, you can follow Everytable on Instagram for updates on all of their latest plans.
