Key Food Market
Amy and Joe Doleh, experienced operators of three successful supermarkets in New York City, plan to open a fourth store in the South Beach neighborhood of Staten Island. The store is located on the border between low- and moderate-income neighborhoods and will serve residents of both areas, who have limited access to fresh, healthy food retail nearby. A loan from the New York Healthy Food & Healthy Communities Fund is enabling the Dolehs to acquire a vacant building, renovate and equip the space and construct an addition to create 9,000 square feet of new food retail space. In addition, the project will receive tax incentives from the New York City Industrial Development Agency as part of New York City’s Food Retail Expansion to Support Health (FRESH) program. The project will create 33 new jobs over the next three years.
