Chow Foods, the company behind 15th Ave’s Coastal Kitchen, is splitting up and dividing its restaurants.
How Chow’s locations will be divided has not been announced and a review of business license information didn’t reveal any answers — each Chow restaurant appears to be its own separate company — but CHS has been told that Coastal Kitchen will continue to operate and to expect no major changes. Coastal Kitchen is a CHS sponsor.
A discussion about the future of a Wallingford cafe turned up this speculation about Chow:
According to a long-time Beeliner and Jitterbug staffer, the Chow Foods owners split up. They split their restaurant empire in “half” (half in quotes because one of them ended up with most of the locations leaving the rest of the staff to gossip endlessly about why).
The news will impact brunches across Seattle. Chow restaurants include The 5 Spot in Queen Anne, Atlas Foods in U Village, Mioposto in Mount Baker, Endolyne Joe’s in West Seattle, The High Life in Ballard, and Coastal.
