Colorado-based Mad Greens begins its move into the Austin market with the opening of its location at Rock Rose at the Domain (3100 Esperanza Crossing). To celebrate the first of their five upcoming Austin-area locations, Mad Greens will host a Free Salad Day on Thursday, giving away one free regular size salad, with choice of protein, and a free drink from 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Since the food is free, Mad Greens is encouraging guests to donate money on site to Austin’s Sustainable Food Center (SFC).

Future locations of the shop that also serves fresh juice, soups and paninis include Lakeway, downtown at Second and San Antonio streets, Round Rock and Lakeline. View the Mad Greens menu online at
