Seattle-based salad concept Evergreens grew slowly at first, adding just one unit a year from 2013 to 2017. But it has doubled its units every year since, acquiring Garden Bar, another Pacific Northwest-based salad chain, last year. January and February brought the chain's best sales ever, co-CEO Tom Small said, before the 27-unit brand was forced to shut down because of the coronavirus. But the business plans to slowly reopen stores and continue its growth plans. The chain relies on a commissary system, so it's able to keep its stores' footprints compact.
