run a works in your town

We opened our first store in Manchester, Vermont in 1988. From the beginning, we have been an industry innovator, working to remain at the forefront of fast casual dining, the fastest growing market segment in the restaurant industry.

A lot of excitement has been generated over our healthy menu and our unique restaurant concept. The Works has been featured on The Today Show and National Public Television, and in Inc. Magazine and The Green Business Quarterly.

All of our cafés incorporate a warm, inviting store design utilizing sustainable or salvaged building materials and create a relaxing, Earth-friendly environment in which to enjoy a meal or kick back with coffee and friends.
