Woodland’s Vegan Bistro Changes Name to NuVegan Café; 2nd Location Coming to College Park

2928 Georgia Ave, NW – Originally Everlasting Life before becoming Woodland’s

Flying high off their visit from Kanye and Kim – Woodland’s Vegan tweets us:

“@PoPville Woodlands Vegan Bistro Changes Name to NuVegan Café, Franchises and Open Second Location!”

Their press release says:

“Yes, it is true. One might ask; “Why another name change?” Change often equals progress and elevation for a much bigger and greater cause. Woodland’s Vegan Bistro will immediately introduce their new, second location as NuVegan Café while their Washington, D.C., location will gradually make the new name transition over the next few months. The change is the result of their exciting and historical venture of becoming one of the very first vegan restaurants of its caliber to franchise. Franchising will be finalized by the end of this second quarter. With respect to animals, the environment and good health, NuVegan Café uses the freshest plant derived foods to carefully create and invent vegan cuisine full of comfort and satisfaction.

While they have a new name, slogan and logo the great aspects about the restaurant that many have grown to love will remain unchanged. They are still committed to providing exceptional and nutritious meal options for everyone. This is still your home away from home where you can come and enjoy exceptional service and a delicious meal with family, friends and co-workers. The food truck still travels throughout the DMV area conveniently catering to the needs of local residents. The menu still includes their award-winning macaroni and cheese, collard greens, cornbread, crab cake sandwich with desserts like sweet potato cheesecake and specialty drinks including their famous Tropical Delight Smoothie.

Holding raved reviews with “likes” of up to 96% and 5.0 star ratings on; Yelp!, Happy Cow-The Healthy Eating Guide, Urban Spoon, Yahoo! Local, and The Washington Post. As NuVegan Café, they will not cease to maintain their track record of being Washington D.C.’s highly acclaimed Vegan Hot Spot since 2009!

NuVegan Café is excited to share the Grande Opening of their NEW and second location in College Park, Maryland near the campus of the University of Maryland!
