Seattle-based PCC Natural Markets, the largest community-owned food market in the U.S., has two new stores on the drawing board.

The first, in Burien, Washington, is expected to open in early 2018. The approximately 20,000-s.f. unit will be located in Five Corners Shopping Center at 15840 1st Avenue South and bring about 100 jobs to the surrounding communities. It will mark PCC’s 12th store. The company’s 13th store will be in Seattle’s Madison Valley neighborhood and debut in 2019; additional details about that store were unavailable.

“My inbox is filled with requests for more PCC locations, and our members in Burien, Normandy Park and Des Moines are among the most vocal,” said PCC Natural Markets CEO Cate Hardy. “This is such a vibrant region of diverse tastes and food traditions along with thriving farmers markets. We’re delighted to bring PCC to this growing community.”

Like PCC’s other 11 area locations, the Burien store will celebrate fresh, local, organic, seasonal and sustainable produce, meat and seafood; dishes made from scratch onsite every day in the PCC Kitchen; product standards that keep the store shelves honest; and store staff who are knowledgeable and attentive, according to the company. PCC says it also will expand its food bank initiative, hot food and grocery rescue programs, local donations and school fundraising.

In addition to its made-from-scratch deli dishes, hot food bar and salad bar, Burien PCC will feature the PCC Taqueria, where customers will find seasoned fillings like pork adobado, beef barbacoa, roasted squash and garbanzos, and chicken verde made with Non-GMO Project Verified chicken. Sides will include rice and beans, plus aguas frescas and freshly prepared salsas.

The PCC Café will serve hot coffee and tea beverages as well as baked goods made fresh from scratch daily. These treats will include seasonal galettes and the PCC “crownie”—a brownie/chocolate chip cookie hybrid drizzled with caramel. The store will serve Burien, Des Moines, Normandy Park, Sea-Tac, White Center and areas in-between.

The Burien PCC project will be the first designed for the grocer by Seattle-based Graham Baba Architects.

Since 2013, PCC has added new locations in Seattle’s Green Lake and Columbia City neighborhoods and, last year, in the city of Bothell. The company also has complemented store growth with the addition of online delivery in 2016 through partnerships with Instacart and Amazon.
