Lauren Conrad Teams Up With Kellogg's For Opening Of New Cereal Cafe In NYC
BATTLE CREEK, Mich: Tony the Tiger is taking NYC once again with an exciting new food destination - this time with the help of Lauren Conrad. Ahead of its anticipated opening, Kellogg's is partnering with the famous author, foodie/entertainer, lifestyle expert and designer to open its new cereal cafe in NYC.
"I love spending time in the kitchen thinking of flavorful new ideas so people can enjoy food in new ways," Conrad said. "Cereal is something we've all grown up with and still enjoy. It's been exciting to explore the unexpected fun it brings to the table - or in this case, the bowl."
In addition to creating hundreds of innovative, tasty recipes for her lifestyle website, last year Conrad released a how-to lifestyle and entertaining book titled Celebrate, which became her seventh New York Times bestseller. Born and raised in California, the 31-year-old wife and mom is also a fashion designer and philanthropist.
"Lauren Conrad is a natural when it comes to entertaining done easy and thinking of fun ways people can enjoy their food," said Aleta Chase, marketing director for Kellogg's. "In thinking through the evolution of our new menu and fully customizable experience, we were excited about Lauren's fresh ideas and ways to inspire people with the endless possibilities cereal can bring."
Kellogg's NYC Cafe will open the doors of its new permanent brick-and-mortar location in NYC's Union Square neighborhood on December 14.
The second iteration of the cereal cafe, located at 31 E 17th St., will be a place for foodies and people to chill, create and explore the endless possibilities of cereal. Conceptualized by Anthony Rudolf and Sandra Di Capua of Co.create NYC, the Kellogg's NYC Cafe experience will be five times the size of its former location, which gained worldwide attention with its debut.
In advance of the opening, we are offering exclusive preview opportunities to media on December 12-13.
