Philly-based fast casual salad and stir-fry chain Honeygrow will host its grand opening in Tysons Corner at 8399 Leesburg Pike, per Northern Virginia magazine. Honeygrow outposts keep popping up in the area: one opened in Reston in May and the company has big plans for D.C. in general.
CEO and founder Justin Rosenberg will be there on Friday to help the Tysons staff cut the ceremonial ribbon and the restaurant is partnering on opening day with Back on My Feet, a nonprofit that helps the homeless get back into society with a running-based program. The first 100 guests who donate running gear will get a free salad or stir fry, and $5 from every meal sold on Friday will go to Back on My Feet.
