Guardhouse is the newest addition to the Frankford Arsenal in the Bridesburg neighborhood in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Renowned chefs Khoran Horn, and Matthew Gansert, imagined a cafe space where they can exercise their culinary skills and provide the businesses in the Arsenal with a new hangout.

Khoran is a Philadelphia-based chef and restaurateur — earning his culinary and hospitality degrees from Virginia’s Johnson and Wales University. His passion for food and good times lies not only within the walls of Guardhouse but also within his other endeavors like Stripp’d Juice. He brings light into spaces and communities through his culinary excellence — something that is emulated with Guardhouse Cafe in the Frankford Arsenal.

Matt is an award-winning chef serving everyone from celebrities and athletes, to people like you and I. Matt started his professional career as an engineer but has since left the workshop and entered the kitchen full time at age 35. He quickly cooked his way through the ranks in Philadelphia kitchens until he became an Executive Chef — now he is bringing his expertise to Guardhouse Cafe.

Guardhouse is located just steps away from Oat Foundry’s headquarters. As a “welcome to the campus” gift, we partnered with Khoran and Matt to install a Split Flap right in the cafe. The Split Flap frequently displays quotes, train times to Center City, daily specials, and menu items — easily giving many newcomers a sight they have never seen before. The board is a stock display fitting perfectly into the minimalist and retro design throughout Guardhouse.
