Designed for planners, aspiring entrepreneurs, foodies, and culture seekers, Young Involved Philadelphia is excited to announce a new 3-part series exploring commercial corridors at various stages of their development with a different corridor featured on a bi-monthly basis.
Tours will include stops along the corridor where business owners — well-established or just beginning — will share their personal stories of why they chose their current location, and how they set up shop. For our first tour, we will be working with NKCDC to feature businesses along Lower Frankford Ave, one of the fastest growing commercial corridors in Philadelphia over the last 10 years.
Additional information will be provided by members of the Philadelphia Department of Commerce to also help participants understand the resources available to get started in business themselves.
The tour will end at a bar on Frankford Ave where participants can discuss their own ideas for the neighborhood or the business they’d one day like to build. The first drink is on us.
