Mad Greens, a Colorado-based restaurant specializing in premium made-to-order salads opened its two new locations in Scottsdale and Tempe by hosting a “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 percent 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, according to a press release.

“We are so thankful to MAD Greens and their patrons for donating to the Thunderbirds Branch of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale,” Paola Gale, branch director of the Thunderbirds Branch in Scottsdale, stated in the release.

These are Mad Greens first two locations in the Valley and Mad Greens Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Marley Hodgson stated 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,” Ms. Hodgson stated in the release.

Mad Greens is committed to serving locally sourced ingredients and they have partnered with local farmers and purveyors to provide fresh and local ingredients, according to the release.

The Scottsdale location is at 14418 N. Scottsdale Rd. Suite 185; the Tempe Marketplace location is at 2000 E. Rio Salado Pkwy. in Tempe.

In September two new Mad Greens locations set to open at the Hilton Village and 7th and McDowell, according to the release.
