Energy Kitchen in Hoboken Closed for Repairs or for Good?
Energy Kitchen located at 96 Hudson Street in Hoboken appears to have been closed down for renovations or perhaps for good. A source that is a local businessman in the area thinks they closed that location for good. Their website http://energykitchen.com/order no longer displays the Hoboken location but there are still plenty of locations listed in NYC. Seems like they could have been a promising chain in a promising location in Hoboken. Perhaps the ratio of high rent to lack of foot traffic did them in (plus the PATH being closed) despite it being a very busy corner. I hope the source is incorrect and that they are just renovating but I have seen this play out on other closings in Hoboken before.
The hospitality industry can be a very tough business to survive in Hoboken and there are a lot factors that go into the success of any given food establishment. Perhaps healthy eating is not the best option for a viable food business without a liquor license but I am pretty sure we have enough pizza places. It will be interesting to see what goes in there next.
