The fast-casual Mediterranean restaurant announced the exciting news today in response to consumer demands for more protein-rich plant-based options. RightRice is a lentil, chickpea, and green pea-based rice that’s low in carbs and high in protein, fiber, and flavor.
"Our guests are seeking more plant-forward options," said CAVA CEO Brett Schulman. "True to our Mediterranean roots, we saw RightRice as the perfect solution. After looking at a variety of rice alternatives, RightRice was the only one that delivers on the taste and nutritional profile we were looking for and uses Mediterranean ingredients and flavors we love. We are honored to be the first national restaurant partner for RightRice, and we intend to continue expanding our plant-based menu to meet our guests' needs."
Beginning today, RightRice is available at all CAVA locations across the country, which marks the national restaurant debut of the better-for-you rice brand. You can add the new plant-powered grain to any build-your-own bowl or pita and add your favorite greens, dips, proteins, and toppings. A few of our favorite vegan items at CAVA include falafel, roasted vegetables, hummus, pita bread, and the tahini caesar dressing.
"As one of the most popular fast-casual concepts in the country, CAVA is the ideal partner for RightRice to launch our foodservice business," said Keith Belling, RightRice founder and CEO. "With a shared mission of making delicious, healthier food options more accessible, our brands align so well, and we are excited to introduce RightRice to CAVA's passionate and loyal guests."
