First Watch will open Monday
PLANTATION, Florida – February 20, 2018 – First Watch, the popular Florida-based breakfast, brunch and lunch restaurant with a dozen locations in southeast Florida, today announced that it will open a new restaurant in Plantation on Monday, February 26. The new 3,500-square-foot eatery will open at 7 a.m. at 7620 Peters Road and will employ about 25 people.
In conjunction with the opening, First Watch will donate all money raised from a pre-opening event to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign in an effort to help the organization eradicate childhood hunger in the U.S.
“First Watch has called the Sunshine State our home for more than 30 years, and Share Our Strength has been an incredible partner of ours for the past decade,” said Chris Tomasso, president of First Watch. “We had to jump at the opportunity to bring our fresh breakfast, brunch and lunch to Plantation and, as part of the opening, to work with our new neighbors here to help some of the children in our community who need it most.”
First Watch’s curated menu takes an elevated approach to traditional and innovative offerings made to order using farm fresh ingredients. It includes crave-able items such as Avocado Toast, Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict, Farm Stand Breakfast Tacos and Lemon Ricotta Pancakes. The new restaurant offers healthy, flavorful favorites like house-made granola and pico de gallo, organic greens, house-roasted vegetables and cage-free eggs as well as more indulgent, traditional breakfast, brunch and lunch offerings. First Watch in Plantation will also offer options from the restaurant’s Fresh Juice Bar – including the best-selling Kale Tonic – juiced in-house daily using only the highest quality fruits and vegetables.
The new restaurant will open with First Watch’s latest interior design, which combines farm fresh elements with a high-energy, urban vibe.
First Watch serves its entire menu seven days a week from 7 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. The restaurant also offers customers complimentary newspapers and free Wi-Fi Internet access.
