The Vineyards Shopping Center Welcomes Mendocino Farms to the Porter Ranch Community

The Porter Ranch community is thrilled about Mendocino Farms' new location at The Vineyards.

PORTER RANCH, CA – Mendocino Farms, a beloved California-based restaurant group, is set to open a new location at The Vineyards at Porter Ranch in 2024. The announcement comes on the heels of the grand opening of three other brands, Mayweather Boxing + Fitness, Motivate Cycle Club and YogaSix, expanding the health and wellness offerings for the community.

“Welcoming Mendocino Farms to The Vineyards reflects our commitment to sustainability, community and wellness,” said Michael Pynn, Director of Property Management at Shapell Properties.

Mendocino Farms has more than 55 locations across the U.S., 20 of which are throughout Los Angeles County. The restaurant serves innovative spins on sandwiches, salads and catering featuring fresh, bold flavors from around the world. They pride themselves on being a restaurant that has something for everyone from vegetarians to vegans to kids to anyone who enjoys fresh, whole foods.

The addition of Mendocino Farms is set to enhance the center, which is already home to Whole Foods Market, The Joint Chiropractic, Trek Bikes and Motivate Studios, a fitness studio rooted in the Lagree Fitness Method, as a wellness destination.

“Porter Ranch is a community of culinary adventurers who are eager for new, fearless flavors,” said Kevin Miles, CEO of Mendocino Farms. “This has been one of our most requested locations in recent years, so we’re proud to open our doors here.”

When the restaurant opens next to Lure Fish House in 2024, it will offer indoor and outdoor seating, catering services, and an online ordering platform for easy access and convenience.
