Repping MAD Greens Down in Austin

On a recent trip to Austin, we snagged some time with Amy Gonzales, the general manager of our Downtown location at 2nd Ave & San Antonio. This restaurant has been open about a year and we've been lucky enough to have Amy at the helm since Day One. She brings a great energy, diverse background and hospitality focus to the location that right in the heart of one of America's fastest growing cities. Be sure to swing by if you're in the neighborhood!

What would you say to someone who's never tried MAD Greens before?

We are a healthy eating restaurant with salads, grain bowls, fresh juices and hummus. It's fast and easy and really, really delicious. Being in downtown Austin, people just want to come in to grab something fast and healthy, and we are definitely the place to go for that.


Tell us about your experience this past year with MAD Greens.

MAD Greens in general is becoming really popular throughout Austin. People are really into the healthy and fresh food options that we have. I love going to places where I can tell them I work at MAD Greens and they respond with, "Oh, I love MAD Greens! It's my favorite lunch spot!" It's really great to have more people know about our brand and excited to have our food. 

Can you define "Hospitality"?

Hospitality means to me that we treat everyone who comes through the door like a family member. We want to make sure that we get to know everybody's name, their favorite salad, and just make sure that we're giving them more than just a smile but honestly a solid conversation because we love and appreciate everything they do for us. 


What's your approach to managing this restaurant?

My management philosophy is very hands-on. I genuinely love and care for my team, they do so much for me so I try to do that in return. We both love our guests and want to serve them the best that we can.
