Cava plans new restaurants in Potomac, Gaithersburg

The Mediterranean fast-casual chain Cava is continuing its area expansion. The restaurant already has locations on Bethesda Row, in Westfield Montgomery mall and in downtown Silver Spring. Its owner is planning to open new Cavas in the Cabin John Shopping Center in Potomac and at Shady Grove Road near Interstate 270, according to local retail blog The Store Reporter.

Cava earlier announced it will be one of several restaurants coming to Montrose Crossing, in part of the former Timpano Italian Chophouse space. That restaurant is expected to open in the winter.

After its humble start in Rockville in 2006, Cava has since expanded to more than 30 restaurants across the country, with many centered around Washington, D.C., as well as outposts in New Jersey and California.

Cava won for Favorite Fast Bites and Restaurateur of the Year at the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington awards this year.
