Southern California-based vegan restaurant chain Native Foods Café, VegNews' 2011 Restaurant of the Year, will be initiating 15 new locations after seeing significant growth in 2011. Sales at the chain increased 16 percent in the last year, allowing management to plan an expansion that will include restaurants in Boulder, Newport Beach, San Diego, Santa Monica, and one more city that has not been announced, all within the first quarter of 2012. The chain, was founded in 1994 by Tanya Petrovna, opened three locations in Chicago, IL, last year, the company's first foray outside of California.
