Muscle Maker Grill, the rapidly expanding fast-casual restaurant brand promoting a healthy lifestyle by offering nutritious alternatives to traditional dishes, will officially open its first two corporately-owned and operated West Coast locations: Santa Ana, California, on Tuesday, June 28, and Irvine, California, on Thursday, June 30. To celebrate the occasion, the health-conscious brand known for serving lean, protein-based dishes including fresh greens, wraps, flatbreads, fruit smoothies, protein shakes, and more, will give away free meals for one year to the first 50 guests in line on opening day.
Located in the City Place Shopping Center at 2775 North Main Street in Santa Ana, and in Jamboree Promenade Shopping Center at 2646 DuPont Drive in Irvine, the stores will provide the first 50 guests one free meal per week from its health-focused menu. Some of Muscle Maker Grill’s most popular entrees include the Arizona, which includes all-natural grilled chicken breast and turkey bacon with brown rice, tomatoes, and scallions and served with its zero-carb signature sauce (also available as a wrap); the Godfather, with all-natural grilled chicken breast, portabella mushrooms, roasted red peppers, and reduced-fat Mozzarella and served with gluten and fat-free balsamic vinaigrette; and El Mexicana, which features fajita grilled chicken breast, sizzling onions and peppers, reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, and salsa over brown rice and beans with tomatoes and scallions.

Morgan, president and CEO of Muscle Maker Grill. “This is an exciting time at Muscle Maker Grill, and opening these two locations is an important step in the strategic growth of our brand. The new restaurants are beautiful—they are bright and welcoming destinations for guests to enjoy our fresh and health-centric menu options.
