Laughing Planet’s Expansion Plans Makes the News

A Growing Restaurant Garners Headlines

laughing planet cafe expandsYesterday’s interview of Laughing Planet’s CEO Franz Spielvogel has led to a flurry of coverage for the restaurant, which plans a major expansion effort starting in December of this year with the new SW Jefferson “Satellite” location. The newest addition to the family of ten restaurants has been described as “the greatest hits of Laughing Planet,” combined with a faster, easier model that allows customers to take what they need from freshly made burritos, salads and more.

Next year, the company plans to expand deeper into Oregon, including surrounding neighborhoods of Portland like Lake Oswego. Beyond that, lovers of Laughing Planet can expect to find new locations popping up in Reno, Salt Lake City, and even Boise at some point in the near future.
