CAVA, the Washington, DC-based Mediterranean fast casual restaurant and culinary brand, has opened two Boston area locations in 2018 and will continue to build on its brand with three additional locations announced for later this year. Their first restaurant opened in January in Boston’s Fenway neighborhood, followed by the March opening at Legacy Place in Dedham. Each opening has featured their signature “Community Day,” where CAVA provides free lunch and dinner and also takes donations to benefit local non-profit Future Chefs.
Atlantic Retail is the exclusive agent for CAVA handling their Boston expansion, led by Urban Director Ben Ravelson. Working in close cooperation with JP Kennedy and Brent Renner from the CAVA team, Atlantic has executed a plan to secure top-tier real estate in the ultra-competitive fast casual landscape. Building on the momentum of their two Boston openings, future 2018 locations include the Derby Street Shoppes in Hingham, Boston-Back Bay, and Cambridge-Kendall Square.
