The Colorado-based restaurant, MAD Greens, is celebrating its two Arizona openings with a preview at Singh Farms on June 13, and a “Free Salad Day” on June 25 with proceeds going to the Boys and Girls Clubs.

MAD Greens is set to open two locations in Arizona, one at Tempe Marketplace, 2000 E. Rio Salado Pkwy. in Tempe, and the other at 14418 N. Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale.

MAD Greens is set to be a refreshing change to the Phoenix restaurant scene through providing customers with their mission to promote ‘eating better’. MAD Greens is well known for providing fresh ingredients that are made from-scratch daily and specializing in made-to-order salads, fresh blended juices, paninis, wraps and soups, according to a press release.

On Saturday, June 13, MAD Greens is hosting a pre-opening preview at Singh farms from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. where they will be offering salad samples, according to the release. The MAD Greens team wants to bring the same idea of providing fresh and local ingredients to their Arizona locations as they do for the stores based in Colorado.

MAD Greens has partnered with local Arizona farmers and purveyors such as Abby Lee Farms, Bella Fresh, Duncan Family Farms, Hickman Farms and Shamrock Farms to provide fresh ingredients daily to its customers, according to the release.

To kick-off their grand opening MAD Greens is hosting a “Free Salad Day” on June 25, at both Arizona locations from 10:30 a.m.  to 8 p.m. Guests will be offered their choice of a complimentary beverage and regular-sized salad, according to the release.

This grand opening giveaway will also act a fundraiser to the local chapters of the Boys and Girls Clubs, they will have representatives on-site collecting donations and informing guest about summer programs offered to Valley youths.
