The Minnesota-based Crisp & Green franchise will double down on its Denver footprint at the end of this summer. Franchise owner Pete Dwyer is pairing again with CFO Mark Bastiaens and operator Zack Dwyer to plant another fresh, locally-sourced fast casual restaurant in town, this one slated for the Belleview Station commercial complex at 6821 E Chenango Ave.
“We are always looking to expand into vibrant and energized community environments near similarly community-focused businesses,” Dwyer said in an email to What Now Denver. “We are looking forward to building relationships with our customers and engaging with residents and local businesses to become a trusted and active member of the community.”
This connective philosophy has meant success for Dwyer’s first store on Lowry Boulevard.
“We’ve built a large loyal following of customers which continues to grow as more and more people learn about our convenience and healthy menu,” Dwyer said. “Customer feedback on service and quality has been outstanding and is among the highest across the Crisp & Green brand.”
Dwyer notes the new friends that they’ve made living by the company motto — “Locally Owned Locally Loved.” The Denverites offer several satiating, nutritious meals in the form of customizable stuffed salad and grain bowls. For breakfast or a fruitier punch, there’s also eight different smoothies, six acai bowls, and five aguas frescas.
Dwyer said the new Belleview location will be approximately 2,750 square feet and with indoor seating for 40 along with “generous” outdoor patio seating. Franchise operators are working with building management to be ready to open by the end of August.
