Sixth District Councilman Dee Andrews is proud to be bringing new businesses to the Sixth District of Long Beach. This includes the Third Wave Market, with NBA champion Metta World Peace. Located in South Wrigley, this is a health-food marketplace and eatery concept comprising of various main elements including a coffee shop, juicery, eatery, and take out.
Councilman Andrews started working with Metta World Peace last year and they are ready to open this summer. “Good businesses are crucial for our economy. Business owners are now seeing the improvements that we have made in the Central area, as well as, the great benefits that our community offers. More and more businesses are coming to the Sixth District”, said Councilman Dee Andrews.
The South Wrigley business concept is scheduled to open this summer. It will be located on the ground level of the Mental Health America (MHA) building at 1955-1965 Long Beach Blvd. In the discussion to move MHA to this location in order for the Schroeder Hall to become the new East Division Police Department, Councilman Andrews championed the idea for the new business site to be added as a community benefit to activate store front amenities. It will include an upscale café, patio and bakery for the public’s enjoyment, as well as, free WiFi for the community. “We have been looking to open a restaurant in Long Beach for years and we couldn’t be happier that our first location will be in the 6th District with Councilman Andrews”, said Metta World Peace. “I look forward to working with him to bring in more jobs and a “Class A” business to the Sixth District”.
The Third Wave Market took the name from the third wave coffee movement that has produced high-quality coffee. As such, the marketplace and eatery will include an artisanal coffee element, a wellness smoothie bar, a modern superfood eatery, and a to-go retail element, aspires to the highest form of culinary appreciation.
