Grand Opening On Wed Jan 7th, 2009

Green Tango Announces Grand Opening of Newest Location
--Salads and Wraps Just $5 to Celebrate--

Green Tango, the area's premiere fresh chopped salad restaurant, has opened its newest location at 2608 Erwin Road in the Lakeview at Pavilion East complex. Just steps from Duke University Medical Center and Duke's west campus, Green Tango's newest location is open from 11am-9pm Monday through Saturday and 12-9pm on Sundays.

To mark to occasion, all salads and wraps will be just $5 on Wednesday, January 7 from 12-2pm. The celebration will extend to the flagship restaurant at Shannon Rd. as well.

Green Tango serves fresh chopped salads that are quick, healthy, and customer-designed. Salads and wraps are prepared to order from more than seventy quality ingredients, including five lettuces, twelve dressings, and a wide variety of fresh vegetables, grilled meats, and cheeses. Our approach is deceptively simple – start with the freshest ingredients, provide nearly limitless choice, and chop and toss each salad to order to create the ultimate salad experience.

Permisiion is granted to operate a...

Restaurant! We passed and received our permit from the health department. We came in just under the wire. We were putting the finishing touches on everything as the inspector was walking across the parking lot.

GC summed everything up (as only he can) "Now the real work begins." Soft opening is scheduled for monday.

Pre Opening Visit - 9 More Things

Glass for the sneeze guard was installed this morning. Health Inspector came by for a pre-opening visit this afternoon. Left with 9 things that needed to be addressed before we can get our permit and open. Inspector will be back late on friday afternoon. We have less than 24 hours to handle all 9 things or we most likely will not be permited till January. Going huddle with the GC and see if we can make it.

Friday, December 12, 2008 losing my mind

Sneeze guard is in, but alas no glass. Same company who made the mistakes with the sink that I wrote about previously decided to cut the wrong glass as well. First time I have ever asked anyone to leave a job, but felt that given their track record we were better off going with another company. We had hoped to be open already but can't without the glass. Local company is going to rush it but even with that still about a week a way.
