Mediterranean brand CAVA will soon have three locations open in Fort Worth.
A new restaurant is set for 2736 W 7th St in the city’s Cultural District. A second location is coming to Alliance Town Center. And the first location, which opened in 2021, is at 5917 Convair Dr, suite 309, in the Waterside shopping center along the Trinity River.
The growing fast-casual brand puts a heavy focus on fresh, as well as culinary creativity and customer choice. 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.
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 has built up a loyal fanbase, and even tapped celebrities to promote the brand. Most recently, they teamed up with American internet personality, Emma Chamberlain, for a limited time Fire Bowl and Spicy Snack collaboration.
