When we opened the first Marathon in 1984, our goal was simple: to provide the neighborhood with the highest quality fresh food at an excellent value. The seeds we planted in our 10-seat burger joint in Northeast Philadelphia have grown into what Marathon is today. Today, our talented team of chefs share the same core principles of consistency, a focus on freshness, and sourcing the best seasonal products available.
We continue to be a locally owned and operated restaurant group and pour ourselves into the daily operations of three busy restaurants. We still have the same drive and passion we did when it all began. We believe in adopting new trends as well as creating our own. More then ever, we believe in building neighborhoods and creating community through great food, sincere service, and a love of warm and interesting spaces. We take great pride in being part of Philadelphia’s landscape and feel deeply rooted in our community
We personally believe in the buy local movement and do our best to participate in it. For us, it is all about creating relationships and building strong partnerships through our metal-smiths to the mural artists we work with to make our spaces feel better to the farmers we buy from, and urban-farms we hope to build.
We very much appreciate your business and hope you appreciate what we set out to do each day. We are a company that takes pride in growing, learning, and evolving. If you ever have comments, complaints or suggestions please reach out to us. We’d love to hear from you.
