Green Apple Supermarket, which opened at 92-25 Guy Brewer Blvd. in late August, is set to open their community party room and food court on Sept. 15. The party room will be located beneath the food court attached to the 28,000 square foot. The party room will hold up to 120 guests for a buffet style event.
“The use of the room will be free of charge but must be catered by our food court.” said Ricky Chung, the manager of the food court and party room at the Supermarket.
The space will double as additional seating to the food court unless reserved for a party. Chung hopes that the space can be used for all types of events for the people of the Jamaica community.
“There are many city employees in this neighborhood, the college is close by we hope that this space can double as retirement parties, baby showers, graduation parties or even just after work events for the people of this area”.
Party throwers who hope to reserve a spot for the space which will begin as weekend only have a variety of food choices for their event.
“Our food court and catering has so many choices for people, they have everything they need.” said Chung. The food court will house American breakfast style food, bubble tea, Mexican, Chinese, Halal, Jamaica, sushi, pizza and a fried food station.
“Our prices will be very affordable. If they want to throw a casual event with finger foods we can charge about $8 a person, if they would like a fancier meal we have options that are maybe $15 a person. There are a lot of options for people.” said Chung.
The space will be rented out for three to four hours at a time and will offer non-alcoholic beverages for an additional charge.
“We will not have a liquor license here but people are welcome to provide their own alcoholic beverages for their events.” said Chung
Green Apple Supermarket sells thousands of products and will be open Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. and on Sundays from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. The owners of the supermarket plan to open another location in Long Island City.
According to DNAInfo, the supermarket was built as part of a development plan which will build market rate housing adjacent to the supermarket and house several hundred apartments.
