The SwitchUp

The Switch Food Hall is under new management after a partnership between Bartholomew Restaurant Holdings and Green Slate Team. The new approach will lean hard on the Food Hall’s existing green initiative, while also embracing a more cooperative existence between vendors. Operational Director Nick Bartholomew will  incorporate many of the aspects of his other successful venture, Dandelion Pop-Up, saying “We plan to utilize the strength of the collective, shifting the business model to a cooperative effort between all of our vendors and neighbors.”

The Food Hall at 3618 Farnam will also be debuting more meal-kits, pantry items, and will be welcoming interest from new vendors. To inquire contact NBKBVentures@Gmail.Com
