ORIGINAL CHOPSHOP EXPANDS TO NORTH SCOTTSDALE
Original ChopShop, a neighborhood eatery crafting ‘Just Feel Good Food’ from whole ingredients, announces the opening of its sixth restaurant in The Promenade located at 16203 North Scottsdale Road on Mar. 8. The Phoenix favorite is also gearing up to take the concept national, starting with its entry into the Dallas market this April. Expansion in the Phoenix market will continue as well, with the concept’s seventh Phoenix-area location planned for Arcadia in June.
“The North Scottsdale Shop will be the first of six openings in 2018, more than doubling our current footprint,” said Jason Morgan, CEO of Original ChopShop. “Our growth and success are driven by our team’s commitment to our core values, as well as our guests’ excitement and appreciation for the authenticity and approachability of our brand. We are looking forward to sharing ‘Just Feel Good Food’ with more of our neighbors in North Scottsdale, as well as an entirely new group of guests in Dallas in April.”
The new restaurant at The Promenade will bring 50 new jobs to the area, with available positions in the culinary and hospitality teams. Interested candidates who have a passion for food and thrive in a fun, fast-paced environment should attend the restaurant’s job fairs on Feb. 2-3, 9-10 and 16-17 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on-site. Those interested may also apply at www.originalchopshop.com/careers.
Since the first restaurant opened in Old Town Scottsdale in 2013, Original ChopShop has provided a warm, welcoming place where people ‘fuel their well-being’ with wholesome, flavorful food. The menu offers protein bowls, acai and pitaya bowls, fresh-squeezed juices, protein shakes, salads and sandwiches that are made from scratch on-site with real, quality ingredients.
Original ChopShop’s 2,900 square-foot interior at The Promenade will feature the brand’s signature cozy atmosphere, including sunny accents, distressed wood, handwritten notes and vintage photography. A 600 square-foot patio will offer crafted tables and benches, yellow umbrellas, festoon lights and custom planters. The restaurant’s interior will accommodate 72 guests, while the outdoor patio will seat an additional 36.
To celebrate the new location, Original ChopShop will host a Feel Good, Share Good campaign from Mar. 1-15, where North Scottsdale area fans may sign-up on Facebook for a chance to receive a complimentary protein bowl for themselves and a friend. One lucky fan will win 30 Days of Feel Good Food. Those interested may visit www.facebook.com/originalchopshop.
As part of the Feel Good, Share Good campaign, Original ChopShop has established a local partnership with Phoenix Children’s Hospital. A VIP preview event will be held at the new restaurant on Feb. 28 to benefit the hospital. Those interested in attending may submit a message at www.originalchopshop.com/contact. The restaurant plans to contribute $10,000 in 2018 through various initiatives, including one with Neighborhood Initiatives Water — for every water bottle sold, a portion of proceeds will be donated.
Original ChopShop at The Promenade will open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Restaurant hours are 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Monday-Saturday, and 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Sunday. For additional information, please visit www.originalchopshop.com.
