Laughing Planet will soon add another Portland location to its growing empire. The Hollywood Star neighborhood newspaper reports that health-oriented burrito-and-bowl chain is opening a new cafe in the Hollywood neighborhood this fall. It will be the locally owned company's 10th Portland location out of 15 total cafes.
The new outpost will take the place of I Heart Retro antiques store, which will move to the Foster-Powell neighborhood. The 3,000-square-foot spot is on NE 42nd Avenue, across the plaza from the iconic Hollywood Burger Bar, and just a few blocks from the Hollywood Theater. Laughing Planet owner and CEO Franz Spielvogel says the target opening date is October 2015.
