Fresh fast food is hot it Portland, Oregon and Green Zebra Grocery is proving to be both a hot concept selling grocerant niche Ready-2-Eat and Heat-N-Eat fresh prepared food that is ‘better-for-you’ and a hip food concept on the grounds of the campus of Portland State University.
Lisa Sedlar CEO of Green Zebra is pretty hip herself and is credited with helping drive New Seasons Market into a regional powerhouse while she was CEO of New Seasons. I call Green Zebra a Grocerant Go Getter and they call it a healthy convenience store, offering locally sourced and organic products to customers.
Lisa Sedlar the newest Green Zebra unit will open this “right in the middle of the Portland State University campus. The new 4,200-s.f. store will focus on fresh fast food that is has the halo of ‘better-to-you’. It will offer healthy, fresh, local food options to our 28,000 students, 6,400 employees and neighbors—a much needed addition to the growing south end of downtown.”
Green Zebra at Portland State will offer local produce, a full deli and salad bar with healthy lunch and grab-and-go options, beer and wine, everyday grocery items, a coffee and tea bar, fresh meat and seafood as well as beer Growlers on tap and to-go.
Green Zebra offers Indoor seating for customers to sit down for a quick bite or coffee, any time of day, and in any weather; beer growler fill up, a cooked-from-scratch kitchen so staff can prepare fresh, hot food offering three meals a day, delivery services so groceries can be delivered to more people throughout the city via Instacart; and catering for neighborhood business, offices and events.
Green Zebra is a hot and hip concept that currently works well in suburban yet urban locations but the team at Foodservice Solutions® believes that this new location will put Green Zebra on the top of the foodservice growth charts.
