Coming to 9323 Garland Rd, the restaurant will open in a busy neighborhood alongside Chipotle, Chick-fil-A, and Starbucks. Renovation work on an existing space of 2,500 square feet will cost an estimated $500,000. It is expected to start in May and wrap up in August, per a recent permit filing.

Growth-wise, CAVA has been on the upswing lately thanks in part to another Mediterranean brand, Zoës Kitchen. The restaurant group behind CAVA acquired Zoës in 2018 for $300 million. Since then, the group has been transitioning many Zoës Kitchen restaurants into CAVA restaurants. With the infrastructure and Mediterranean concept already in place, this has allowed CAVA to expand rapidly and introduce its “adventurous” personality to a new audience without much difficulty.

Founded by Dimitri Moshovitis, Ted Xenohristos and Ike Grigoropoulos – three first-generation Greek Americans – the first CAVA opened in 2011 in Rockville, Maryland. Today, the brand has almost 80 locations on the East Coast, in Southern California, and Texas.

With a heavy focus on fresh, guests can build their own salad, pita, or green and/or grain bowl. There’s also an option to build a bowl made with RightRice – a high protein and high fiber grain made from 90% vegetables such as lentils and chickpeas.

After choosing a base, you add your protein. There’s falafel, spicy lamb meatballs, grilled chicken, and roasted white sweet potato. Toppings include pickled onions, cabbage slaw, avocado, Kalamata olives, corn and pita crisps. A variety of dressings, dips and spreads – many of which are also sold in Whole Foods Market locations and specialty grocery stores across the U.S. – are also available.

CAVA currently has four other Dallas locations: Lakewood – 2009 Abrams Pkwy; Park Lane – 8018 Park Ln, suite 100; Turtle Creek – 3878 Oak Lawn Ave, suite 314; and Uptown – 1919 McKinney Ave.

Other North Texas locations include Addison, Coppell, Flower Mound, Frisco, Irving, Plano, Richardson, Southlake, and Fort Worth.
