Whole Foods will be coming to New Jersey. Cory Booker, Mayor of Newark, N.J., received approval from Whole Foods executives to plant their market into Newark town this week, according to The Wall Street Journal reports on Oct. 9.
The politician’s love for all foods was his catalyst to bringing food industries into the city.
Since Booker’s mayoral term began in 2007, he has expressed his interest for Whole Foods to set down their roots into the city however, been unsuccessful for years; his persistence has paid off now.
In 2011, as a result of Mayor Booker’s efforts, the Manischewitz Company planted their headquarters, into the 200,000-square foot facility located on 80 Avenue K in the east side; the site where the 7th Annual Man-O-Manischewitz Cook Off contest was held, bringing in Jamie Geller, author of “Quick & Kosher” as head judge in 2012.
Mayor Booker – who is currently campaigning for the U.S. Senate against Republican Steve Lonegan – is a devout vegetarian.
