Tocaya Modern Mexican started in Venice, Calif., and its menu and mission pick up that vibe. The food is authentically Mexican but emphasizes fresh, health-forward ingredients and lots of vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free choices. The concept's belief in positively impacting the communities it serves and the future of the planet is key to its marketing. All 19 locations are in California and Arizona, and their laid-back, summery design reflects their locale. Tocaya's year-over-year sales growth of more than 65% bests many on this list.
