Call Your Mother, the popular "Jew-ish" bagel and deli chain partially owned by the Biden administration's Covid-19 coordinator, is expanding into Northern Virginia. The business has signed a lease for space at 128 N. Pitt St. in Alexandria, according to a source familiar with the situation. It is seeking electrical contractors to build out the space formerly occupied by Helen Olivia Floral Design, per a bid list from Shepherd Electric. According to bizjournals.com, "The location would be the chain's sixth in the D.C. region, counting its latest at Pike & Rose in North Bethesda, but its first in the commonwealth. That puts it in line with growth projections the company mapped out in 2019, when it hoped to expand its portfolio to five or six locations in the next two to three years. Call Your Mother, which started out at farmers markets before expanding into its first bricks-and-mortar store in D.C.'s Park View neighborhood, is owned by chef Daniela Moreira and Andrew Dana, along with partner Jeff Zients. Dana declined to comment." As per bizjournals.com, "The roughly 4,469-square-foot building, at the corner of Cameron and North Pitt streets, is assessed at $1.2 million, per Alexandria land records. It is owned by Martin Kamm and Eva Martorell Gil. Kamm, who is also co-founder and managing director of District-based Ceres Capital Partners, declined to comment citing confidentiality matters, as did representatives for Rappaport, which has been retained to market the vacant retail space to prospective tenants."
