Children’s-themed restaurant operator, Giggles N’ Hugs Inc. today announced plans to open a new location at the Westfield Topanga Shopping Center.

The company signed a 10-year lease for a 5,900 square foot space at the Canoga Park mall.

Currently, the company’s portfolio consists of one location in Century City.

Joey Parsi, chairman and CEO of Giggles N’ Hugs, said the firm was excited to expand to its new location.

“Many of our customers have expressed hopes for a new location in the San Fernando Valley, which we expect to be open for business this summer,” Parsi said. “We hope this will be one of many more locations to come throughout the country.”
