Gettysburg’s first-ever food hall, Savorhood, opened its doors to the public April 28.
Located at 985 Baltimore Pike, SavorHood is home to 11 Eateries and a brewery. The food hall offers an array of options including barbecue, pizza, Mexican, wings, and seafood.
“We are so excited to bring this new dining concept to Gettysburg,” owner Steve Burton said. “With multiple cuisines under one roof, we are creating a community environment where our employees all work together to make sure every patron has a memorable experience.”
SavorHood is made up of eleven food and beverage eateries called SavorStations, including:
- Liquid Art Brewery
- Tex’s Lone Star BBQ
- Tilford’s Wood Fired Pizza
- Easy Briez Grilled Cheese
- Sunshine Fries
- CJ’S Seafood
- CJ’S American Grille – Burgers & Hot Dogs
- Mr. G’s Ice Cream
- Gettysburg Cookie Company
- Mexican Street Tacos
- Salads & Wraps
- C3 Cheesesteaks & Wings
- Que Rico Tacos and Bowls
Customers order food at their vendor of choice, take a seat and receive a text message when their order is ready. Customers can also order directly from Savorhood’s website. Burton said all orders will take about ten minutes so groups ordering from different vendors can eat together.
“The idea for the look and the food is to be community-based,” co-owner Judy Morley said. “We shy away from the words ‘food court’ because when you think of food court you think of national chains. All of the concepts need to be chef-driven, really good food with fresh ingredients.”
All owners will attend SavorHood Academy so the customer experience is similar throughout the building. The class will be conducted by Morley, who earned a master’s degree in consciousness studies/leadership from Holmes Institute.
Burton and Morley purchased the property last summer and gutted the interior of the building, added garage-style doors so it can be used for indoor and outdoor seating, and divided the banquet room so it can serve as one large or two smaller rooms. The common seating area consists of large and small tables and about 200 seats to accommodate any size group.
Burton and Morley relocated to Mount Joy Township four years ago from Colorado, where they operate Tilford’s Wood Fired Pizza, which has locations in three food halls similar to SavorHood Gettysburg. This will be Burton and Morley’s first venture into food hall operation, but they hope to expand the brand in future years.
