A new place to grab healthy meals is coming to the Clifton area.
Green District, a popular Louisville-based chain known for its salads, cereal bowls and wraps, announced the opening of a third location in Cincinnati near the main campus of the University of Cincinnati.
The fast-casual restaurant will be located at 257 Calhoun Street in Plaza U, a mixed-use development directly across from campus. It should open on Saturday, November 19.
A Grand Opening Ceremony will take place on the same day. Green District says the first 100 people in line from 10:30 a.m. will get a free salad and t-shirt, and one person will win free salads for a year.
“Finding a meal that’s both healthy and convenient can be difficult, so we’re looking forward to offering both at our new location next to campus,” Green District CEO and co-founder Jordan Doepke said in A press release.
Green District has two other Queen City locations in Blue Ash and Fountain Square in downtown Cincinnati. The chain also plans to open two more locations by mid-2023, according to the statement.
As part of the new restaurant opening, Green District says it is partnering with local nonprofits that also share its “people first” mission. It will donate 20% of its proceeds from the U Square location to Bearcat Buddies, a program where UC students mentor Cincinnati public school students.
