Organic To Go Premiers in Nation's Capital

Encore Construction, Inc. Partners With Organic To Go

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - August 12, 2008) - Organic To Go, America's first fast casual café to be USDA certified as an organic retailer, has agreed to a multi-café contract with Encore Construction, Inc., the Mid-Atlantic region's premier general contractor specializing in restaurant construction. The multi-café deal will result in 3 Organic To Go locations in the DC area and an additional location in Arlington, VA.

"We are proud of our expansion into the Mid-Atlantic and believe there are a number of café opportunities and markets for our company to expand into," said Jason Brown, CEO of Organic To Go. "John and his team at Encore provided us with the ability to expand quickly and worked to deliver our café on time and on budget."

Organic To Go offers breakfasts, lunches, and snacks free of antibiotics, growth hormones, pesticides, preservatives, and artificial sweeteners. Entrees include organic chicken, meat, pasta, seafood dishes, and Mexican cuisines. The cafés also offer a variety of coffees and a bakery. Customers can dine at the cafés, or have Organic To Go catering services provide lunch at their office or event.

Because Organic To Go shares similar values and standards with local suppliers, its ingredients are obtained from neighboring farmers, ranchers and manufacturers. Organic To Go products are currently available in multiple venues including cafés, wholesale, airports, universities and others.

"Partnering with a major player in the emerging organic market is a great opportunity for Encore Construction," said John Klakamp, President of Encore. "Healthy, has become a strong focus in the restaurant industry. Organic To Go will be well received in the DC market."

In addition to being a leader in the organic market, Organic To Go promotes going green by using hybrid and energy efficient vehicles, such as the Prius, Scion and diesel Sprinter van for catering deliveries.
