Founded by longtime mom friends Michelle Walrath and Fran Paniccia, Organic Krush is a healthy alternative causal eatery with several locations extending from New York to Virginia.

Their newest location in Charlottesville is at The Shops at Stonefield - 2050 Bond Street Suite 140. This location makes their third location in Virginia after two locations in Richmond at Short Pump and the University of Richmond.

“This Charlottesville store has been in the works for over two years, so we are excited for it to be finally open,” Walrath said. “With our locations in Richmond, we felt Charlottesville was the right next step.”

Fran and Michelle are moms to 4 children each and created Organic Krush after being unable to find healthy, fresh food alternatives. Their first eatery launched in under seven months, with a menu of Signature Krush Classics that are a staple in each location, including items like their Mexi Steaks and Spicy Korean BBQ. The Charlottesville location will also feature Daily Chef Specials that vary from GF pancakes on the weekend to burritos and stir-frys during the week.

Organic Krush believes in the concept of Straight Out of Nature, crafting meals using organic food free of pesticides, GMOs, and antibiotics, as nature intended. Each item is prepared fresh in their open-concept kitchen, where guests can watch the food preparation process. In-house items include their smoothies, baked goods, salad dressings, and even their own line of cold-pressed bottled juices, which can be used as a cleanse or an immunity boost.

The space is chic, tastefully decorated, clean, and most importantly, has large windows, which allows for natural light. Organic Krush encourages guests to use their space as a meeting space or a place for moms to lounge while the kids enjoy a variety of games such as Jenga or Connect Four. Walrath anticipates their community building Speaker Series to start in the fall. Follow Organic Krush for more details here.
