Next 365 by Whole Foods Market Opening in Oregon
With the opening of its premier store still nearly a month away, 365 by Whole Foods Market, the broader-appeal incarnation of Austin, Texas-based Whole Foods Market, plans to open its second location, in Lake Oswego, Ore., on July 14.
Scheduled to launch in Los Angeles on May 25, 365 by Whole Foods Market stores are designed to complement the Whole Foods Market brand by bringing fresh, healthy foods to a broader audience with a streamlined, quality-meets-value shopping experience. A third location will open in Bellevue, Wash., later this fall and up to 10 additional 365 by Whole Foods Market stores are expected to open in 2017.
The Lake Oswego store will host two new Friends of 365 partners that both originate from Portland, Ore.: Next Level Burger, a plant-based take on the classic American burger joint, and Canteen, a fresh and healthy café and juice bar.
Both “friends” will establish shops within the new market and will feature specially curated menus that will further enhance the store experience. Next Level Burger will serve plant-based burgers, fries, shakes, hot dogs and organic salads alongside craft soda, local beer and kombucha. Canteen will feature design elements from its flagship store in Portland and will serve an innovative menu of organic juices and smoothies as well as a few other select items.
“Oregon is known throughout the country for an extremely creative and diverse food scene, and we wanted to find partners that would be reflective of those qualities,” said Jeff Turnas, president of 365 by Whole Foods Market.” We’ve made it a point to keep an open mind during the selection process, considering anything and everything. This time it was the team in the Pacific Northwest that helped us discover friends for this new store.
“They were huge fans of Next Level Burger and Canteen and suggested they would be a great fit. We’re really excited to welcome both and anticipate this 365 by Whole Foods Market location will become a Portland-area destination for healthy, fast casual eating as well as convenient grocery shopping.”
The Lake Oswego store will also offer shoppers the convenience of online ordering and delivery with Instacart, through its longstanding relationship with Whole Foods Market.
Fun, easy, affordable
Stores feature thoughtfully selected partners and products that adhere to Whole Foods Market’s industry-leading quality standards in an environment that’s fun and easy for shoppers. The Friends of 365 program is an opportunity for innovative businesses and entrepreneurs that align with the mission and quality standards of Whole Foods Market to transform the traditional grocery shopping experience and expand their reach by establishing independent retail spaces inside of 365 by Whole Foods Market stores.
365 by Whole Foods Market aims to provide simple, affordable and convenient everyday shopping without sacrificing the quality standards and dedication to food transparency that Whole Foods Market pioneered. The banner features a product selection curated for convenience, including the 365 Everyday Value brand.
