Do you have $165,000 laying around? Want to eat unlimited amounts of buffalo drumsticks? Foodswings is for sale, again! Back in 2008 Foodswings sold to a group of four individuals, including partners Melody and Jeff, who many also know as the owners of vegan-friendly Park Slope heavy metal bar Lucky 13. Since 2008, Foodswings has gone through many makeovers, and now it’s time for the beloved Williamsburg vegan fast food restaurant to change hands once again.
If you haven’t been to Foodswings recently, it just went through another remodeling and kind of looks like a cross between a diner and a biker gang’s clubhouse (in the best way possible, of course). They also got a new A/C system (Remember when Foodswings didn’t have A/C and you still ate there anyway?). But, if you’re not diggin’ the new look you can buy it and change it! The sale comes with copyright and their coveted recipes and the current asking price, as mentioned above, is 165k.
The current owners are requesting that the next buyer be vegan, as they’d like to see Foodswings continue to be vegan-owned and operated. I spoke with Melody, who informed me that local “gourmet” burger chain Bareburger was interested, but Foodswings’ owners declined the offer because Bareburger can go to hell (my words, not hers).
According to Melody, “The neighborhood is only continuing to grow so I think it would be a great opportunity for someone, especially if they kept it vegan.” She also informed me that post-Foodswings, her and Jeff plan on moving Lucky 13 to a bigger, better location (that will still be in the same general Park Slope area).
So please, someone buy Foodswings and keep it awesome, or perhaps make it more awesome. And for the love of all (cruelty-free) things deep fried and smothered in buffalo sauce, keep it vegan. Interested? Email Melody!
