Popular healthy alternative restaurant to close temporarily in downtown OKC
OKLAHOMA CITY – A healthy alternative to casual dining restaurant offering fresh salads, wraps, flatbread pizzas and homemade soups, today announced the temporary closing of its downtown City Place location at 204 N. Robinson beginning Saturday, March 1.
The Coolgreens downtown store is slated to reopen in January 2015 with new morning hours and menu options, including breakfast items and a juice bar.
“After much deliberation, we’ve decided to temporarily close our City Place location due to downtown construction and street improvements that have impacted our visibility and accessibility,” said Allan McMurrain, Coolgreens founder and managing partner. “However, we’re excited to announce that once the dust settles on downtown construction, we will have additional fresh, healthy options for our downtown fans to enjoy. We look forward to the improvements that are taking place downtown, which will make our restaurant experience even more enjoyable for our customers.”
Catering options will still be available to downtown customers, and the Nichols Hills, North May, Edmond and Norman Coolgreens locations will remain open. All 15 downtown employees will be given the option to transfer to any of the existing Coolgreens restaurants.
The first Coolgreens location opened in Nichols Hills Plaza in October 2009, followed by a location in north Oklahoma City in May 2010. The Norman location opened in September 2011 and the Edmond location in January 2012.
