AUSTIN, Texas — A North Austin classic for your dose of healthy greens is closing its doors on Friday.
Baby Greens, located at 10611 Research Blvd., has decided to close its doors for good on Oct. 7. The green-fueled restaurant has been in business since 2004, but moved to its North Austin location in 2016.
Business owner Sharon Mays stated in a Facebook video on Oct. 3 that the main reason they are closing their doors is because they do not have enough employees to run the restaurant.
"Of all of the reasons that I thought we might have to close, that was definitely not on the list," Mays stated. "Last week, one of my guys told me he was moving out of Austin because it's just too expensive to live here, which is heartbreaking. In the last two and a half years, I have lost more employees to the lack of affordable housing and living in our fair city than any other reason."
Mays later described and thanked the customers that have supported her and her business throughout the last few years during the pandemic, stating that Baby Greens will be going out on a high note.
"Come by this week and get your fill of Baby Greens. We have a week, let's make it great," Mays said.
Baby Greens will continue to fulfill catering orders through the end of the year but, moving forward, no other orders can be placed. Baby Greens will be taking orders through Friday for businesses that are looking for catering for the rest of the year.
