Rooster Soup Co. is opening Jan. 23

"We can't wait to feed you, and share your incredible hospitality with some of the folks least likely to receive it."

Rooster Soup Co. made its first squawks in the summer of 2014 and has been tantalizing the mission-minded in Philadelphia ever since.

The social enterprise, a casual dining spot that will make its namesake soups from leftover Federal Donuts chicken bones and donate all profits to Broad Street Ministry, raised almost $180,000 in crowdfunding to start operations. In Sept. 2015 it announced its Center City location — 1526 Sansom St. — and could be seen making progress on the physical space, but otherwise, updates on the business’s progress have been slow-coming.

This morning, Rooster finally announced an open date: Monday, Jan. 23.

An email to the restaurant’s Kickstarter funders called this date a “moving target” but had clear enthusiasm for sticking to it: “We can’t wait to feed you, and share your incredible hospitality with some of the folks least likely to receive it.”
