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.
