Exciting things are happening in the Chicago, Illinois, retail landscape as Dom’s Kitchen & Market receives a major funding investment. Recently, the next-generation omnichannel local food emporium announced it received an additional $15 million Series Seed growth investment, bringing the total raised to $25 million to date.
With the additional $15 million investment, Dom’s Kitchen & Market gains new investors in Wasson Enterprises and Beliade. They join existing investors Cleveland Avenue, Valor Siren Ventures, and Molto Capital. The company expects to accelerate future store openings as well as further develop the e-commerce platform for mobile ordering, loyalty programs, and curbside pick-up.
“Cleveland Avenue is excited to invest in Dom’s Kitchen & Market to expand and enable the concept to connect with more customers. We are impressed with Dom’s management team and look forward to working together to accelerate their progress,” said Cleveland Avenue’s Chief Financial Officer and Chief Investment Officer Keith Kravcik in a release.
The concept was first introduced last year by Bob Mariano, who founded Mariano’s after serving as the CEO of Roundy’s and Dominick’s; Jay Owen of Dom Capital Group, a great-grandson of Dominick’s founder Dominick DiMatteo; and Don Fitzgerald, a former senior executive at Dominick’s, Roundy’s, and Mariano’s.
Dom’s Kitchen & Market will open its first location in June 2021, at 2730 N Halsted Street, Chicago. Customers will have the option to pick up or dine in with an expansive breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu, as well as a highly curated selection of wines, pantry items, and a European-inspired bread and dessert baker. Dom’s will also offer locally sourced, globally inspired, and seasonally driven items.
