The expansion of upstart Minnesota fast-casual chain Crisp & Green continues at a breakneck pace, heading into the east metro for the first time.

It was announced on Wednesday that the salad chain will be moving into the Grand Avenue space vacated by Italian chain D'Amico in late February.

It will become the sixth Crisp & Green location in the Twin Cities, with the healthy food chain having originally opened in Wayzata in 2016.

The Grand Avenue location will be operated by the chain's second franchisee, Blake Graves.

The first franchisee, recently-retired NBA and Gophers star Kris Humphries, opened his first location in Dinkytown last year and is signed on to open a further five across the metro.

Crisp & Green also has locations at 50th and France in Edina and North Washington Avenue in the North Loop.

Humphries' next restaurant is the soon-to-open location at Arbor Lakes in Maple Grove, with the Grand Avenue the first of four restaurants planned by Graves.

Crisp & Green has a further 8 "coming soon" locations slated for the Twin Cities in total.

Work on the Grand Avenue location will begin in the next couple of weeks, while the Maple Grove eatery is expected to open this summer.
