Chompie’s and JRI Hospitality officially celebrate the opening of the much-anticipated new Chompie’s Deli, Bakery and Restaurant located at 3212 E. Cactus Road. The new location brings 27,000 square feet of vibrant New York experiences and delicacies to neighbors and businesses in North 32nd. In addition to the grand opening festivities, Chompie’s celebrates its 43rd anniversary in the Valley of the Sun on February 14.
“We couldn’t be prouder to open up this new location just a mile from where our original location opened in 1979 and in the very neighborhood where our founders Lou and Lovey still reside,” says Mark Borenstein, co-founder and owner. “We are so grateful to be welcoming back our local customers from the area and look forward to celebrating our official grand opening all month long.”
Four Days of Events and Deals
Festivities begin on Wednesday, Feb. 9, which happens to be National Bagel and Lox Day. Guests of all Chompie’s locations can enjoy a Lox Box (including six bagels, a half-pound of lox and a half pound of plain cream cheese) for just $19.99.
On Thursday, Feb. 10, at 7 p.m., A Lennon Legacy, a Beatles tribute band, will be performing at the new location as legendary mural artist Randall Hedden — whose incredible artwork graces the walls of each Chompie’s location — demonstrates his incredible speed painting talents.
