Marvelous Market Moves Into Arlington

Thursday, March 15, 2007

Marvelous Market, a local favorite known for its chef-crafted, all natural food and gourmet convenience store atmosphere, is expanding via franchising in Arlington, VA. Alex and Traci Topchy a husband, wife duo that have been residents of Ballston for ten years, will develop three stores in the Clarendon, Ballston and Virginia Square area. The couple expects to open their first Marvelous Market store by the fall. "I've been a frequent customer of Marvelous Market's for years," says Alex. "I love the concept and thought it would be perfect for the Ballston area." Often referred to as a "mini Whole Foods," Marvelous Market combines quality and convenience. Offering bottled wine, fresh baked breads, pastries, desserts, sandwiches and salads, every entrée is made fresh over night using only the finest ingredients. For expediency, Marvelous Market products are self-service items—customers do not have to wait for food to be cooked, assembled and packaged. Virtually all of the products are pre-wrapped and specifically designed for easy accessibility. "Marvelous Market has been a Washington DC favorite since its opening in 1990," said Marvelous Market CEO, Michael Meyer. "Our fresh look at on-the-go quality food has won over many Washingtonians and we are excited to bring more stores to the area." Marvelous Market currently has eight stores in the metro area and expects to grow to 50 plus units by 2008. This will be the second franchised location in the metro Washington DC area. The first opened on Capitol Hill in October 2006. About Marvelous Market: Established in 1990, Marvelous Market began as a neighborhood bread boutique producing and selling traditional European style specialty breads in Chevy Chase, Maryland. Today, Marvelous Market has expanded to eight stores throughout the Washington DC metropolitan area and has grown its product line to include specialty breads, pastries, freshly prepared entrees, sandwiches, salads, soups, spreads, and dips, and gourmet grocery items such as hand made cheeses and extra virgin olive oil.
