About Us

We've got more heart than lettuce. More juice than any tapioca. Sometimes a little spicy, but always cool. Sprout is all about fresh ideas mixed with the best ingredients that will leave any taste bud wanting more. It's about the idea that gourmet doesn't mean top dollar. It's the healthier, cost-conscious part of you that is just waiting to get out - all in a friendly environment.

Our goal: to break the stereotype that fast and affordable food is neither healthy nor tasty. We push ourselves to bring great ideas and good food to you.

Stop by, have a bite and say hello.
