Owners Gregory and Amy Vagelatos already run a successful House of Jerky shop in Jim Thorpe, PA, but decided to add a New Hope location because of “the foot traffic on the weekends,” according to Gregory. He says that his wife will come and join him in New Hope for a few days each week this summer.
New Hope can always use another fresh face in its retail landscape, and House of Jerky is certainly working a more original retail angle.
