Message from the owner (October 13, 2014)

To my incredibly valued customers:

Over the past four and a half years as the proud owner of the Chubby Chickpea, I have enjoyed the support and energy of a generous and kind customer base. This support has been even stronger over the past year since we made the transition to a Kosher kitchen.

Everyone seems to know how much work goes into the restaurant business. I hope people also understand that seeing the faces of people who have supported my dream for so long as they walk through the door makes all the hard work worth it. It is no secret that we have grown (and there have been bumps in the road). The launch of our food truck three years ago radically changed our business and the growth of our catering division this past year has done the same; at the same time the growth of my family has radically changed my life!

At this time, the decision that I believe is best for my company, as well as my loyal customers, is to remove our regular schedule in the Canton restaurant in order to focus on our food truck and catering businesses. What will replace our retail hours? We have added another talented chef to our team in Shelton Perkins (Tastings, Stephanie's on Newbury), and we will continue to rent our dining room out for private events. Additionally, we will be open many times each month with special menus (and will give advance notice)! This information will be posted on our website and social media outlets.

If you are interested in having our food truck make a regular stop in your community, having our team cater a corporate or private event, or renting out our dining room, please contact us to schedule it at Otherwise, I hope to see you at one of our restaurant nights soon!

Warmest Regards,

Avi Shemtov
