It’s still up in the air, but Honey’s Kettle Founder and Owner Vincent Williams tells What Now Los Angeles that his fast-growing restaurant is in talks for a location at the Canoga Park shopping mall, Westfield Topanga & The Village, with a potential opening by 2022. This Culver City-based restaurant specializes in scratch-made, farm-fresh fried chicken, buttermilk biscuit breakfast sandwiches, hotcakes, and sides like kettle fries, coleslaw, and macaroni salad.
It’s likely that more and more restaurants will be uncovered for the mall in the near future as plans materialize for an in-progress overhaul of the shopping center, including the addition of a food hall. edo Little Bites, for instance, is also in negotiations for the Canoga Park mall redo.
Currently, Honey’s Kettle is located in Culver City with satellite locations in DTLA and Hollywood. The Hollywood location opened up earlier this month, while the Downtown location debuted in July. The satellite locations are solely available online and through apps, a move meant to appeal to consumers during a time when in-person dining isn’t as prevalent. Just ask Rapper Wiz Khalifa about his delivery-only restaurant HotBox or the folks over at sbe as they look to dominate the ghost kitchen space globally.
Williams said that there are hopes to open more satellite locations over time. “As soon as we get our feet underneath us, we’ll probably start to look to put a third one together, a fourth, a fifth,” he said.
Williams was recently featured in Pharrell Williams’ and JAY-Z’s music video, “Entrepreneur.” Williams and his wife, Arlene, founded Honey’s Kettle in 2000 and opened in downtown Culver City in 2005.
