Green District, a Louisville-based chopped salad and wrap eatery, plans to open its first Indiana location in Fishers by the end of August. A second restaurant is planned in Carmel.
James Plenty, the Fishers franchisee, took possession of about 1,440 square feet of commercial space at 8350 E. 96th St. this month and has started build out. The space formerly housed a Which Wich Superior Sandwich shop.
Green District is a quick-service restaurant that offers build-your-own and specialty salads, such as The Forbidden Fruit with chicken, strawberries, apples, bacon, feta cheese and craisins, and the Tequila Mockingbird with shrimp, feta cheese, corn, black beans, red and green peppers and tortilla strips. All salads can also be made as wraps.
Customers can eat in the store, which will seat about 30, or take their meals to go. The company also offers catering.
Green District opened its first restaurant in Louisville in June 2017 and opened a second location there six months later. Earlier this year, the company began franchising.
The company now has plans to open in Indiana, Florida and Ohio.
Chris Furlow, Green District’s franchisor, told IBJ he believes the Indianapolis area has room for five to 10 Green Districts.
Furlow said the company has signed a second franchisee for the Carmel store who is looking for a store front.
Furlow said he thinks the popularity of the concept in Louisville will transfer well to Indianapolis, which he said is similar to Louisville.
“James picked a great location, so we’re excited to start offering the Green District concept in Indianapolis,” he said.
