    WaBa Grill, one of the nation’s leading healthy rice bowl chains, is excited to announce the reopening of its Hollywood restaurant, which recently underwent an expansive interior refresh that delivers an appealing new environment and an even more welcoming atmosphere. Located within the bustling cross streets of Santa Monica Boulevard and Vermont Avenue, the Hollywood restaurant is excited to welcome back guests to enjoy WaBa Grill’s better-for-you rice bowls, plates, and salads.  

    The restaurant now features updated wall art and window graphics, new furniture and lighting fixtures, and a fully repainted and refreshed interior. Complementing the new design, the location also has undergone a change of ownership, transitioning from being corporate-owned to ownership by franchisee Steven Shin, an existing WaBa Grill franchisee who also owns WaBa Grill’s West Hollywood restaurant on Sunset Boulevard.  

    “When the opportunity to purchase a corporate store in the area surfaced, we immediately knew it was an exciting chance to grow our WaBa Grill portfolio, something we’ve been eager to do since finding success at our West Hollywood location,” says Shin. “We are so grateful for the opportunity to reopen our doors to the Hollywood community and are proud to introduce new guests and existing fans of the brand to our newly revamped, state-of-the-art space. We’re confident the community will be just as excited as we are to welcome WaBa Grill back to the neighborhood.”
