Chicago-based Foxtrot will be opening this summer in Knox Street to serve coffees and sandwiches according to a Dallas Morning News article from March 25. They say,
“Foxtrot is expected to open in late summer 2022 in place of the Yeti store at 3130 Knox Street. That’s across the street from the new RH furniture gallery and its tony glass-walled restaurant, RH Rooftop.
Foxtrot’s role is as an all-day cafe. It’s a bodega, as the Chicago-based co-founders explained when Foxtrot made its entrance into Dallas in 2019: Foxtrot is a coffee shop, a place to grab a sandwich, and a corner market for flowers, wine or gifts.”
While Foxtrot will establish in Knox Street, it was originally an online retailer that expanded and expanded because of its strategic marketing and locations according to a Grocery Dive article from April 1 which reports,
“Foxtrot, which launched as an online retailer in 2013 ahead of opening its first brick-and-mortar location in Chicago, will offer 30-minute delivery to customers within range of the new Washington-area stores, as it does as all of its existing stores, the company noted in the announcement.
The expansion builds on Foxtrot’s strategy of placing locations in areas with a critical mass of local shoppers likely to gravitate to its curated assortment of foods, coffee and other goods. The company, which focuses heavily on working with local suppliers, said it plans to include design elements in each of the newly announced stores that reflect their location.
Foxtrot is looking to benefit from people returning to downtown offices. One of the new Washington stores, slated for a spot a few blocks from the White House, will be smaller than the other new location and offer a mix of products intended to appeal to time-pressed workers. Foxtrot did not specify the size of the location, but for comparison, the Georgetown store occupies about 2,500 square feet.”
Currently, there are already two Foxtrot shops in Dallas. One on McKinney Avenue and one on Hillcrest Avenue. Both locations are specially accommodated to serve college students as well as neighborhoods compared to the soon to open in Knox Street which will cater to shoppers and office workers.
