Michigan-based grocer Plum Market is bringing a new retail store and cafe to the Detroit Pistons’ training facility, which is currently under construction in New Center.
The 5,000-square-foot store will be open to the public and feature a Zingerman’s coffee shop, a grab-and-go snack bar, and a “casual dining experience” serving a “healthy menu” with wine and beer, according to a release. Designed by Rossetti architects, the space will have both indoor and outdoor seating.
In addition to the store, Plum Market has also struck a deal to become the food provider for Detroit Pistons. The company’s culinary team will be charged with serving the team’s breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, as well as working with the athletes’ trainers and nutritionists to make sure meals adhere to each player’s specific diet.
This will be the first location for Plum Market within Detroit city limits. The store and cafe are expected to debut at the same time as the training facility — dubbed the Henry Ford Detroit Pistons Performance Center — in June 2019.
