According to the Chicago-based company's website, Protein Bar's focus is "on serving healthy, flavorful food in a hip, trendy environment quickly and efficiently so you can get back to your day." To do that, the outposts offer healthier options of on-the-go favorites. The Bar-rito, for example, replaces rice with quinoa and a tortilla with a wheat wrap. The bowls are a mix of veggies, quinoa and protein; Protein Bar also offers blended drinks, salads and breakfast options.
The first Protein Bar in Colorado opened last week in Boulder's 29th Street project; this spring, one will open in One Union Station, the big new building just southwest of the renovated station; a second location will open soon at 1390 South Colorado Boulevard. The company hasjob openings listed for all three locations.
Protein Bar already has numerous stores in the Chicago area and in and around Washington, D.C.
