If you’re in Germantown, you’ll be excited to learn about the new Newk’s Eatery location opening up Monday, Jan. 21, at 1730 S. Germantown Rd. The franchise group Danco will operate the Eatery, which will be their sixth Newk’s location in Memphis.
Newk’s is an upscale fast casual concept (i.e. ‘fine casual’) known for its scratch-made recipes, crafted with premium seasonal ingredients. Newk’s serves a robust menu, offering hearty sandwiches, entrée salads, kettle-batch soups and handcrafted pizzas for lunch and dinner, as well as house-made desserts such as its signature dozen-layer cakes.
The founder and CEO, Chris Newcomb, is a true foodie who has a passion for big flavors as he sources the finest, freshest ingredients available, cooking with imported cheeses and prime meats, seasonal veggies, house-roasted garlic and house-infused olive oils. Now at more than 120 restaurants across the country, the brand still takes a hands-on approach to every meal with hand prepared, high-quality ingredients and meats that are hand-sliced and flame-grilled. Also interesting to note, Chris Newcomb has a storied career as a restaurateur – he and his father founded McAlister’s Deli in 1989 before selling the company and starting Newk’s in 2004.
