Look Out Costco, Walmart's Shiny New Food Courts Are On Their Way
By Betsy Parks
If you're the kind of shopper who can't resist a stop at the Costco food court, Walmart has just unveiled a pilot partnership that may take a bite out of your hot dog budget.
Walmart's store in Quakertown, Pennsylvania, will be the first to open a Wonder food hall — a "fast-fine" concept from entrepreneur Marc Lore featuring multiple menus in one place.
Similar to the 10 existing Wonder locations in New York and New Jersey, there will be a wide selection of vendors to satisfy your hunger and cravings while shopping.
You can get a chicken souvlaki and avocado sandwich from Michael Symon's Yasas or Texas barbecue at Tejas. There is plenty of seating to enjoy your food before returning to shop.
The Wonder in the Bucks County-area Walmart also offers burritos and other Mexican food, burgers, American diner fare, chicken wings, and slices of pizza.
If things go as intended, Wonder food halls will also open at Walmart locations in Teterboro and Ledgewood, New Jersey, and about two dozen other locations in 2024.
