Chompie’s returns to its roots

Chompie’s opened its first restaurant in the Phoenix area more than 40 years ago, near 32nd St. and Shea Blvd., to serve high-quality New York-style bakery and deli items to guests.  Over the decades, they’ve expanded to five full-service delis and restaurants to feed the people of the Phoenix metro area with a New York State of hunger. JRI Hospitality and Chompie’s are developing a one-of-a-kind dining experience that customers will enjoy.

To match the delicious food and excellent service, they are introducing the new Chompie’s Deli, Bakery, and Restaurant, which will take guests back to the East Coast and the heart of New York. The 27,000 square-foot location at 32nd St. and Cactus Road will offer a one-of-a-kind dining experience.

The customer journey starts at the market filled with delicious bagels, breads, pastries and various merchandise set on beautiful bread carts and crates, surrounded by weathered brick, rich woods and metals reminiscing old New York markets.

The journey will continue to the coffee, deli and bakery counters, which will be backdropped by iconic subway tile and traditional brick. As guests walk through the market, they will be greeted with the magnificent lights and glamor of New York with lighting that will transport guests to the Big Apple. While it will have large dining rooms, guests will not want to miss out on the patio area where it will be filled with trees, greenery, and sparkling lights to capture the unique feeling of eating in Central Park.

From kitchen to table, guests will be able to enjoy a new Chompie’s dining experience. As customers are seated in an unforgettable New York-style atmosphere, they can watch their food be prepared by the seasoned deli and bakery staff. Not to mention, look around and take in a bit of New York charm without leaving Phoenix. Once the new location is open, guests will enjoy the same food they have always loved, but with a new one-of-a-kind experience that will make them fall in love with Chompie’s all over again.

The Borenstein Family opened the first Chompie’s restaurant in 1979 near 32nd St. and Shea Blvd. in Phoenix. The new location will be open in July 2021 and the current Paradise Valley Mall location will be closing on May 16. Beginning on March 31st the only access to the mall will be through Chompie’s front door.
