Visitors to the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation in Dearborn will have a new health-conscious dining option starting this winter – The Plum Market Kitchen.
Plum Market Kitchen @ The Henry Ford will be fully integrated into the institution’s food services operations and will provide the museum’s nearly 1.8 million annual visitors with health-conscious, all natural, organic, and locally sourced culinary options. The menu is being developed to meet the unique needs of guests who visit The Henry Ford.
It also will feature artisan baked goods from local bakehouses, outdoor seating during warmer seasons as well as a separate entrance from the museum to provide the local community with a casual dining destination.
“Plum Market is known for their variety of healthier and innovative food choices,” says Patricia Mooradian, president and CEO of The Henry Ford. “We are thrilled to partner with the Plum team on this unique opportunity at The Henry Ford and offer another stellar dining destination to our visitors and the community.”
The collaboration marks the first time Plum Market, an independently owned Michigan-based company, has partnered with a cultural destination.
The company operates six full-service grocery stores with an emphasis on natural, organic, and locally crafted items, and also operates more than 15 quick-service fast casual dining-focused operations in the Chicago and Detroit metropolitan areas.
“Being part of such a landmark in this community reflects our profound commitment to the community and supporting local organizations,” says Matt Jonna, co-founder and CEO of Plum Market CEO. “Partnering with The Henry Ford, truly is special and we believe our concept will bring fresh and healthy offerings many visitors will appreciate.”
