Similar to Snooze’s local take-over, Mendocino Farms is another out-of-state chain that might just saturate the Houston market with its delicious, healthy fare.

The California fast casual eatery for delectable salads and sandwiches already has plans to open a third Houston outpost in Uptown. In July, Eater reported that Mendocino Farms will debut in Rice Village next year; in September, we learned that it will open at The Star in Downtown; and new information suggests that the sandwich shop will open an additional outpost in Uptown Park next fall, according to its website.

The forthcoming Houston locations mark the first out-of-state expansion for the California brand. In Cali, the eatery is known for bright, casual fare using local, responsibly raised meats, plus vegan and gluten-free options. The Cali menu features Peruvian steak sandwiches, pork belly banh mi, and salads and sandwiches topped with prosciutto or free-range chicken. An especially delectable sandwich is the “El Cadillac en Fuego” with chicken, Yucatan habanero sauce, spicy grilled pineapple escabeche, Oaxacan cheese, chili aioli, and black bean crema on a panini-pressed soft roll.

Stay tuned for all of Mendocino Farms’ Houston debuts.
