“Pittsburgh has been a wonderful home for First Watch for the past decade, and we are so pleased to be able to give back to the families in our community in such a meaningful way,” said Chris Tomasso, president of First Watch. “The idea of supporting such a fantastic pediatric medical facility like Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh really resonated with our managers and staff at all five of our restaurants, and we’re honored to have the opportunity to be a part of the foundation’s commitment to building healthy families in the Pittsburgh community and across the country.”
First Watch’s curated menu takes an elevated approach to traditional and innovative offerings made to order using farm fresh ingredients.
