Announcing our 2016 MADvocates

MAD Greens guests enjoying their food at a Texas sneak preview event.

A few months ago we announced the search for our 2016 MADvocates. What the heck is that, you ask? MAD Greens fans who wanted to be the first to hear about new culinary inventions from Chef Dan. Salad aficionados who craved behind-the-scenes access to new restaurant openings and private tasting events. Eat-better fiends who wanted to help shape the future of MAD Greens.

We're happy to announce we've selected our 2016 MADvocatoes - a small but mighty group of fans who will be helping us secret shop our restaurants, give us feedback on new menu items and generally help us spread the MAD Greens love of eating better far and wide. Read on to learn more about our newly-minted MADvocates.
