With twelve locations in Colorado, the salad shop plans an additional four by the end of the summer in Tempe, Scottsdale, and Phoenix.

Ten year old salad sweetheart MAD Greens is spreading its roots to Arizona. The first out-of-state outpost will open at Tempe Marketplace in May. A second one will quickly follow in June at the corner of Scottsdale and Acoma in Scottsdale (inside the East Thunderbird Square shopping center). Two more Phoenix-area restaurants will open in July and subsequent locations will be announced later in 2015 and 2016.

"We wanted to do our first out-of-state expansion right," says MAD Greens co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer Marley Hodgson. "This meant carefully researching who had the healthiest appetite for a made-to-order salad restaurant offering locally sourced, hand crafted options as well as a heavy dose of fun. We feel that Arizonans are trendsetters when it comes to craving fresh, better for you restaurant options and that's why Arizona is such a great fit as we move beyond Colorado for the first time."

MAD Greens has 12 locations across Colorado. All of them are open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.
