Many businesses can claim a long history, but not many can claim a history as prominent as the Old Original Bookbinder’s Restaurant.
From 1865 when it was established until 2009 — when it packed up shop and moved its original location to Richmond, Virginia — Bookbinder’s has been a staple of the signature flavor of Philadelphia seafood cuisine.
The original restaurant, located dockside on the Delaware River in Philadelphia, was established by entrepreneur Samuel Bookbinder. After the business was sold to John Taxin during the Great Depression, it ventured into other endeavors, and in the 1970s, a foods division was created. This division packed and sold the famous flavors of the restaurant through convenient take home products to be sold in grocery stores nationwide. Thus, Bookbinder Specialties was born.
Bookbinder Specialties sells a wide range of famous Old Original Bookbinder’s seafood delicacies, such as chowders, soups, sauces, breadcrumbs, seasonings, and more!
There’s nothing quite like a steaming hot bowl of soup on a cold day, especially when you’re stuck inside from the bitter cold, or dreary rain. If you have customers that are soup lovers, then you’re in luck. Bookbinder sells an impressive variety of original soup flavors.
