Cava Company Overview

Founded by three first-generation Greek Americans, Ike Grigoropoulos, Dimitri Moshovitis, and Ted Xenohristos, CAVA has redefined the fast-casual dining experience with its focus on Mediterranean cuisine. The concept began as a single restaurant in Rockville, Maryland, but quickly expanded due to its popularity, encompassing multiple locations across the United States. CAVA distinguishes itself by offering a customizable menu where customers can craft their meals according to their dietary needs and flavor preferences. The menu features a variety of bases such as salads, grains, and pitas, topped with an array of proteins including grass-fed lamb, grilled chicken, and falafel. What sets CAVA apart is their range of dips and spreads, famously including their Crazy Feta and Harissa, which add unique and spicy flavors to their dishes. Further enhancing their market presence, CAVA has developed a line of retail products available in grocery stores, allowing customers to enjoy their favorite dips and spreads at home. This move towards retail supports CAVA's mission to make Mediterranean cuisine accessible and enjoyable outside their restaurants. In addition to their food offerings, CAVA emphasizes customer engagement and loyalty through a robust rewards program. This program rewards customers for frequent visits and allows them to earn points that can be redeemed for free meals and exclusive offers. CAVA is also committed to sustainability, integrating eco-friendly practices in their operations and focusing on community involvement. Their approach includes using locally sourced ingredients and supporting local communities, which aligns with their overall brand ethos of health, flavor, and cultural heritage. As CAVA continues to grow, they remain focused on innovation in the fast-casual food sector, consistently introducing new and exciting flavors to their menu and expanding their reach both in restaurants and in retail settings.
