After HYPEFRESHMagazine had gotten followed by Wayne & Berkley's account on Instagram, our staff decided to stop in personally to visit one of Philadelphia's most talked about seafood spots in town. Located on the outskirts of Germantown Philly, this iconic seafood business has been serving hungry customers in the community for 30 plus years and going.
From the moment HYPEFRESH staff walked in the door, fresh citrus aromas, blended with notes of butter, garlic and assorted seasonings greeted our nostrils. The atmospheric setting welcomed us to the environment similar to that of a marketplace located on the harbors of Baltimore, interiorly decorated with baskets filled with bushels of crabs ready for preparation and of course - feasting. The staff was lovely too, being silly and playful by nature, but dedicated to their daily duties for the day's operation. As customers came walking in famished, they left completely satisfied and smiling.
"Our core mission is to satisfy the customer. We want them to bring more business back through our doors." Says Jerrice Davis, the store's active manager. "Honestly, it's whatever we need to do on our end to ensure that they are pleased."
Already playing a huge role in the community as the go-to spot for fresh seafood, the company also does much more than just work inside the confines of their establishment. "We give back to our people not only through just service, but with events. Not long ago, we held an annual Crab Fest with WDAS'sPatty Jackson for the community. And to be honest, they loved it. It was an amazing turn out for everyone involved, including W&B."
And going without saying, HYPEFRESH's CEO - Clark Kennedy had to get his hands on a seafood platter to see what the buzz is all about. From the likes of the picture below, we don't think he'd disagree with the company's honorable reputation.
If you happen to be native in Philadelphia, or just visiting for a few days, definitely swing past this seafood joint. We promise, your taste buds will praise you like a God. The location and info is just below this paragraph. And don't forget to follow their Instagram account by clicking here.
