Scramble, the popular fast casual breakfast and lunch experience in metropolitan Phoenix known for using local farmers and vendors, announces the official grand opening of its fourth location at the new Collective, a $15 million new restaurant, retail and entertainment development that is anchored by Alamo Drafthouse on the northeast corner of Baseline and Rural (1120 E. Baseline Road) in Tempe on Thursday, Feb. 7.
Guests who dine at any of the four Valleywide Scramble locations, from February 7 – 14, will have the opportunity to make a difference for children in the local community by rounding up at the register in celebration of Scramble’s grand opening during the restaurant’s Eat Local, Give Local campaign. This weeklong event will fund Valley of the Sun United Way (VSUW) WeekEnd Hunger Backpacks program, which provides meals to help those Valley children whose homes are food insecure. The food bags help students get through the weekend and ready to learn on Monday morning.
To kick off the fundraiser on February 7, the first 100 guests who “Round Up at the Register” (at the new Tempe location only) will receive a FREE Scramble Travel Mug, which features $.50 refills of Scramble’s signature drip coffee, Miscela d’Oro Grand Aroma anytime you dine at one of Scramble’s four Valley locations.
Additionally, Scramble Co-Owners Clay Moizo & Don Talbot have pledged to match funds raised that week, dollar-for-dollar, up to $2,500 in support of the campaign.
“Since launching Scramble in 2010, as local business owners, it’s always been one of our core principles to support our local community,” said Scramble Co-Owner Clay Moizo. “We can’t think of a better way to celebrate the grand opening of our fourth location here in the Valley than to support children in the Tempe community. We encourage everyone to stop by for breakfast or lunch and support this incredibly worthwhile cause.”
The funds raised will provide WeekEnd Hunger Backpacks for the students at Frank Elementary in Guadalupe and other surrounding elementary schools in Tempe explained VSUW Senior Director of Corporate Relations and Cause Marketing, Vicki Fiorelli.
“The support from Scramble and the surrounding community will help us to continue to provide the meals that allow growing children to focus on their education, and succeed,” said Fiorelli. “Valley of the Sun United Way appreciates the support from Scramble that shares the same mission of supporting and keeping the funds in the local community.
The new Scramble is about the same size as the other three, with 3,100 square feet inside and a 1,000-square-foot dog-friendly patio. It features the same fast casual breakfast and lunch experience featuring its classic, vegan and gluten friendly menu items with locally sourced ingredients and cocktails too. The contemporary look and fresh ingredients are the same in Phoenix as the other three locations. And, Scramble’s quick-casual approach affords guests the ability to dine and sit as long as they’d like.
“While at most breakfast restaurants you might encounter an hour wait just for a table, our quick casual style of service eliminates the long wait,” said Moizo. “On our busiest days, don’t let the long lines fool you, from the door you are only minutes away from placing your order. Your entire dining experience can take 45 minutes to an hour instead of waiting that long just to sit down elsewhere.”
Scramble’s much-loved menu still features customer favorites including its signature “brizza,” or breakfast pizza, eggs Benedict, French toast, breakfast burritos, steak and eggs, buttermilk biscuits and gravy, omelets, vegan and gluten-free friendly specialties and a variety of coffee drinks. Like Scramble in Scottsdale and at the Biltmore, this new location also offers beer, wine and specialty cocktails such as mimosas and Bloody Marys.
And, Scramble in Tempe also includes the restaurant’s Grab & Go concept featuring prepared salads, sandwiches, wraps, cold-pressed juices, kombucha, and local favorite Danzeisen’s chocolate, skim and whole milk for the business crowd and students on the go.
“We’re equally proud in our vegan breakfast and gluten-free friendly menu options as we are in our traditional fare and simply want to serve great locally sourced products with our Faster, Fresher, Friendlier motto.” Our diversity is part of what makes Scramble so special and separates it from other restaurants in town.”
“The energy and lifestyle surrounding our new location in Tempe are perfectly aligned with Scramble – A Breakfast and Lunch Joint’s brand,” said Scramble Co-Owner Clay Moizo. “Not only are we located in the new Collective, but the demographics in that area with all of the recent revitalization, and the proximity to ASU make it an ideal location for our quick casual concept.”
