OGDEN — Blue Lemon, a popular Utah restaurant chain known for its fresh and relatively inexpensive food, recently announced plans for a sixth location in Ogden.
The lease for a 4,000 square-foot space located at 339 East 2250 South was signed by Aaron Day, Blue Lemon co-owner and CEO.
“We’re thrilled that the community has responded so favorably to our fast-casual gourmet restaurant concept and are excited to bring our brand to the Ogden area,” Day said in a press release. “The city has been most helpful in welcoming us to the community.”
Expected to open in the fall, the new location will be near the newly-renovated Ogden Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in The Junction area of downtown.

Day and his wife, Lychelle, opened their Salt Lake City restaurant in the City Creek mall as their second location, next to their very first one in Highland. They opened their first out-of-state location in Gilbert, Arizona in May 2014. They are thinking about franchising in the future, and now employ over 200 people.
Blue Lemon was ranked number 26 on Fast Casual’s 2014 Top 100 Movers and Shakers list, which highlights “the top brands, people, trends and technologies shaping the fast causal segment.”
“The food quality, fresh ingredients, unique flavor combinations and gourmet plating sets Blue Lemon apart from the rest,” Day said in Fast Casual’s 2014 Top 100 Movers and Shakers report. “Nobody does fast casual quite like us. Our refined, blended service style provides the table touches and quality of a full-service restaurant, yet allows for the speed that would rival some fast-food establishments.”
A Sandy location is also in the works, set to open in August.
