The vegan fast casual set its sights on growth in the last year, almost doubling in size and expanding into new markets. And it plans to continue at a fast clip: included in the announcement of a new CEO in February, Native Foods said it plans to have 200 stores within four years. But it’s not just focused on growing the unit count. The chef-driven concept expanded catering to all sites at the beginning of the year and launched a cookbook to get its name out in new markets.
