According to a recent ABJ article, Mad Greens is looking to expand in central Texas.
“During the pandemic, Mad Greens shuttered three of its seven Austin stores and paused its growth plans as the business recovered. Volatile market conditions — think heightened construction costs, labor shortages and supply chain challenges — also prolonged the company’s expansion hiatus” said Darden Coors, CEO of Mad Greens’ parent company, Salad Collective LLC to ABJ.
The report adds that the “plan is to add six locations in the Austin area in the next three years”, though no potential addresses were reported.
“People might think it’s salad; it’s easy. But we make all of our own dressings, we cook all of our proteins — it’s a real restaurant. There’s lots of cooking and chopping and preparing, so we want somebody who knows restaurants,” Coors added.
“Since our inception in 2004, we’ve been intent on disrupting the status quo: healthy, fast and fresh food should be mainstream, not the alternative. We’ve created chef-inspired salads that will actually fill you up (without putting you in a food coma), warm grain bowls with craveable flavor combos, and satisfying wraps that are as on-the-go as you are,” the official website states.
