MAD Greens is finally here in Arizona and the success and delicious flavors of MAD Greens is keeping customers coming back for more. The popular Colorado-based restaurant specializing in premium made-to-order salads opened its two new locations in Scottsdale and Tempe on Thursday, June 25 by hosting “Free Salad Day.”
The grand opening giveaway doubled as a fundraiser for the local chapters of the Boys & Girls Clubs. During “Free Salad Day,” 100% of the $2,260 raised as donated directly to the BGC of the East Valley’s Ladmo Branch, and the BGC of Greater Scottsdale Thunderbirds Branch.
John Davis, the Special Events Director of the Ladmo Branch of the BGC, said “We are elated to have had the opportunity to partner with MAD Greens on their Grand Opening event, which raised more than $1,000 that will go towards providing scholarships and services for out Ladmo Branch-Tempe Club kids.”
Free Salad Day at MAD Greens’ Scottsdale location helped raise funds for the BGC Thunderbird Branch. Paola Gale, Branch Director of the Thunderbirds Branch in Scottsdale, said, “We are so thankful to MAD Greens, and their patrons for donating to the Thunderbirds Branch of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale.”
These are MAD Greens first two locations in the Valley and MAD Greens Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Marley Hodgson said that opening in Arizona was a longtime dream. “Introducing MAD Greens to Arizona was a herculean effort, and our Grand Opening events, especially our dual Free Salad Day celebrations, would not have been possible without the incredible support from the Arizona community, our local grower partners and especially the hard work of our Arizona team members,” Hodgson said.
MAD Greens is committed to serving locally sourced ingredients and they have partnered with local farmers and purveyors to provide fresh and local ingredients. Currently the Arizona locations of MAD Greens are at Tempe Marketplace (2000 E. Rio Salad Pkwy. #1215) and at Scottsdale & Acoma (14418 N. Scottsdale Rd. #185). In September of this year, there are two new MAD Greens locations set to open at the Hilton Village and 7th & McDowell.
