Crisp & Green (Minneapolis) said it will open 11 new restaurants across the greater Chicagoland market beginning next year. The new locations – slated to break ground starting this fall – will cover the Milwaukee suburbs of Waukesha and New Berlin, as well as the Chicago suburbs of Wheaton and Bolingbrook. They will join the brand’s existing 200 locations already open or under development elsewhere.

“I started Crisp & Green because I wanted to make healthy living more delicious, more convenient, and honestly just more fun,” said Steele Smiley, founder and owner of Steele Brands, the chain’s parent company. “Our guests have made it loud and clear that’s what they want too, so being able to further expand into the Chicagoland area is just an absolute dream come true for me.”

As part of the brand’s effort to expand and meet the demand for fresh and healthy dining options across the Midwest, the soon-to-open Wisconsin and Illinois locations will be operated by franchise partner Vishal Vaghani of VN Development LLC. The brand’s menu includes grain bowls, salads and smoothies.
