What’s the news?
Mendocino Farms, the popular upscale fast-casual sandwich and salad spot, is expanding its presence in the Los Angeles market with the opening of a Culver City location at The Culver Steps mixed-use development on Wednesday, Dec. 9.
Why is this important?Its 16th Los Angeles location (and 36th overall), the Culver City opening highlights the brand’s popularity and expansion in this growing market. Given the current COVID-19 climate changing eating out habits, this location offers a unique opportunity for guests to pick up a meal and enjoy in the greenspace available at The Culver Steps in addition to offering contactless curbside pick-up and delivery. The restaurant is celebrating its Culver City Grand Opening by:
- Providing a free entrée with any menu purchase when locals sign up online for a My Mendo account (must select “Los Angeles-Culver City” as their favorite store) before opening day, Dec. 9.
- Inviting local schools to host a Digital Give Back Day in which Mendocino Farms will donate 50% of proceeds back to the school (must host fundraiser before March 9, 2021 with Culver City location).
“Mendocino Farms has always felt right at home in Los Angeles, and we’re excited to be opening our 16th location in the area. We look forward to tapping into the many amenities available at The Culver Steps, such as outdoor dining and convenient parking, to better serve our craveable sandwiches and salads to the L.A. community. Our team hopes to create and make this sense of gathering easily accessible whether dining in with us – as local mandates allow – or eating at home and the office.”
– Kevin Miles, Chief Executive Officer, Mendocino Farms
