Avocados have made a splash in recent years. Healthy, providing you with nutrients and healthy fats they’ve experienced a surge both in popularity and pricing.

And now, the first all-out US avocado restaurant in Brooklyn got a major boost thanks to Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban who, on yesterday’s episode of Shark Tank, dished out $400,000 into Avocaderia together with fellow investor Barbara Corcoran.

Located in Brooklyn, the restaurant serves up dishes such as toasts, salads, burgers, smoothies and bowls- all using avocado as their core ingredient.

Although the hot-shot business folks love to dump on millennials for blowing their savings on avocado toast which come at outrageous prices in any location due to the global hype it is experiencing, the extremely wealthy Mark Cuban had no problem at all throwing the money into ‘Avocaderia’.

Restaurant owners Francesco Brachetti, Alberto Gramini, and Alessandro Biggi opened just last week and now, with an investment that translates to a 20-percent stake in the restaurant, they are hoping to expand with new locations in Los Angeles, San Diego, Miami, and Texas.
