Fast-Casual Salad Shop Opens its First Stores Outside of Downtown Portland
PORTLAND, Ore. (May 31, 2018) – Garden Bar, Portland’s first fast-casual salad restaurant, is announcing the opening of two new locations in popular Portland suburbs, Progress Ridge and Lake Oswego. The store openings bring the total number of Garden Bar locations to nine, with a 10th location expected to open later this summer.
Garden Bar’s Progress Ridge location opens June 4 at 15035 SW Barrows Road within Progress Ridge Townsquare, a popular shopping and dining destination in Beaverton also home to downtown staples Blue Star Donuts and Little Big Burger. The Lake Oswego location, slated to open June 18, is located at 345 1st Street #109 in the bustling Lake View Village shopping center, home to restaurants and retailers including Glassybaby, Manzana Grill, Salt + Straw and Sur la Table.
“When selecting real estate for our new locations, I wanted to place Garden Bar in the center of where people are already relaxing and enjoying shopping and dining, as well as be in close proximity to businesses in the area,” said founder and CEO Ana Chaud. “I am incredibly excited to provide Garden Bar as a fast-casual salad option to Lake Oswego and Beaverton residents and look forward to getting to know those communities better.”
Garden Bar currently serves Portland’s major neighborhoods, with five locations downtown, one in the Lloyd District and one in the Division neighborhood, each tossing big, fresh, delicious salads made-to-order for people who need to eat healthy on the go. Garden Bar patrons can choose from over 50 fresh, high-quality ingredients and 18 housemade dressings or select one of Garden Bar’s classic salads such as the Chicken Kale Caesar or Northwest Bowl.
Garden Bar also offers catering services for meetings or large groups, a weekly subscription delivery service and a reusable container option. The company also cares about the communities it serves and donates $1 from each Classic salad sold on Give Back Fridays to a local nonprofit organization.
