3 new food and beverage concepts open their doors at Atkins Cos.’ Washington Square Town Center

Atkins Cos. together with joint venture partner Woodmont Properties on Wednesday said three new food and beverage concepts opened at Washington Square Town Center, a mixed-use community located at 253 and 261 Hurffville-Cross Keys Road in Washington Township.

Santucci’s Original Square Pizza, What’s the Scoop and Bison Coffee Co. are all open, as the 35-acre Washington Square Town Center is redefining the traditional mixed-use concept. Developed in a joint venture partnership, the project has created a dynamic mix of retail, residential, medical and community spaces geared towards the needs of the crossgenerational populations that are increasingly making up mixed-use communities.

Anchored by the Rothman Medical Building, a 40,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art medical office building, the property also features 330 residential apartments, 100 townhomes, 30,000 square feet of retail space and an assisted living facility. Already boasting a diverse slate of traditional retail and medical tenants, the three new restaurants further bolster the exciting amenities offered at Washington Square Town Center.

“The success of any mixed-use project is defined by the development team’s creation of complementary spaces that work in synergy to provide a one-of-a-kind experience for residents and visitors alike,” Robert Atkins, managing partner of Atkins Cos., said. “We are excited to welcome each of these businesses to Washington Square Town Center and continue to realize our mixed-use vision for this one-of-a-kind property.”

Founded in 1959, Santucci’s Original Square Pizza currently has three locations in Philadelphia and two locations at the Jersey Shore. In addition to its original square pizza, the family-owned restaurant serves up the finest Italian food in the Philadelphia and southern New Jersey area with dine-in, takeout and delivery options at its restaurants. Santucci’s will provide Washington Square residents and visitors with an opportunity to experience its unique fare in both its 2,620 square-foot indoor space as well as its adjacent outdoor courtyard dining area.

Situated in a 1,980-square-foot space at the entrance to the community, What’s the Scoop is a brand-new ice cream parlor concept. Owned and operated by Stacy Valerio, What’s the Scoop boasts a diverse menu of completely homemade treats, featuring ice cream, water ice and novelties for the community to enjoy year-round. With a flair for the unconventional, What’s the Scoop also offers seasonal items and unique, limited-edition desserts with a continuously changing menu of specials.

Bison Coffee Co.’s 70-seat, 1,800-square-foot indoor and outdoor café’s design seeks to echo the beauty of the Midwest, incorporating wood furnishings and elements of nature. The café features a rotating selection of specialty coffees roasted by Philadelphia’s Elixr Coffee and grab-and-go menu items to create the ideal place for local residents to enjoy a fine cup of coffee, while also catering to customers on their morning commute.
