“We’ve always wanted to be in Hollywood – and finally the opportunity presented itself. We’re really excited to be a part of the neighborhood and the community,” said Franz Spielvogel, Laughing Planet’s owner and CEO.
The space’s proximity to the Hollywood Theatre and the Velo Cult bike shop were a major attraction for the environmentally conscious, eco-friendly and community-driven chain, which is headquartered in Northeast Portland’s Kerns neighborhood. Design plans are still being finalized, but the healthy-menu cafe promises a high-end renovation, similar to the work that was done on their Lake Oswego location.
The 3,000-square-foot Hollywood space will be the restaurant’s tenth Portland location and brings their total number of restaurants to 15. I Heart Retro will offer a 25 percent discount for the remainder of its stay in the district. If you’ve have had your eye on something in the shop, now would be the time to buy. This sale excludes jewelry and already reduced items. Call (503) 287-3764 for details.
