Native Highlight: Philly Grub
We had the pleasure of talking with Marilyn Johnson, the legend behind the top Philly Food blog - Philly Grub. Marilyn has her finger on the pulse of the Philly food scene and has for the last decade. This year, Philly Grub will celebrate their 10th anniversary! 👏👏👏
Check out a behind the scenes look at one of the most influential food bloggers in the Philly area!
The Inspiration Behind The Account
Marilyn went on to explain how she started Philly Grub with her close friend, Kate, as their creative outlet. After Kate left, Marilyn decided to keep the blog alive and had her mind set on becoming a place people could lean on for trusted information about the Philadelphia restaurant scene.
Happy days for all of us foodies that she decided to move back to Philly in 2008 - What would we do without her here?! Her love of the game is what keeps her going and why she has over 2,600 IG posts!
