“The Spot” to Open Second Location in Downtown Pittsfield
Everyone's favorite bowl, juice, and smoothie spot is opening a second location in the heart of Pittsfield.
The Spot, currently located on Tyler Street, is working on opening a second location downtown at 48A North St, the space formally held by Brooklyn's Best. We talked about the expansion with owner Jon Vella who originally opened The Spot in 2018.
While the Tyler St. location is doing well, Vella said he was constantly getting feedback from people that "they never get to that side of town". I have to admit, that I'm guilty of that as well. Vella said he had actually been eyeing the former Brooklyn's Best location for years, even before the Tyler St location opened its doors. Vella hopes that offering a second location in the heart of the city will expand the eatery's customer base.
The plan is to continue to operate both locations with The Spot on North serving as a smaller subset of Tyler Street. Along with acai bowls, pressed juices, and smoothies, the Tyler St. location offers additional breakfast items like bagels, waffles, and bear paws, however, the North St. locations menu will be slightly smaller. Vella said they might do bagels, depending on the demand, but for now, waffles and bear paws will only be available on Tyler.
The Spot on North hours of operation will be 7 a.m. - 3 p.m. Monday through Friday to start. Vella said that menu options and hours will be a work in progress as they gauge what's best for customers at the new location. An official opening date has not been announced, but Vella says it will be "in the next few weeks".
