Westfield Topanga, more commonly known to locals as the Topanga Mall
or Topanga Plaza, is a two-story shopping mall that consists of 279
tenants spread across three sections. It is located on Topanga Canyon
Boulevard in Woodland Hills in the Western part of Los Angeles' San
Fernando Valley. The mall, owned by The Westfield Group, is anchored
by Macy's, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, Target, and Sears.
A $330 million renovation was completed
in 2008, which included the
addition of over 100 new stores including new anchors, Target and
Neiman Marcus, a substantial renovation to the existing anchor
stores, a new food court, a two-story carousel and three parking
In July 2007, Westfield revealed partial plans to link Westfield
Topanga with their other local indoor mall, the Westfield Promenade,
which is less than two blocks away. In addition to the two major
malls, Westfield owns a small, outdoor shopping center located on the
same major boulevard. The company's plans involve renovating the
outdoor mall and making it a hub for people traveling between the
three shopping locations.
Once completed, the three mall complex will be the largest in
California with 3.8 million square-feet.
Joey Parsi founded Giggles N' Hugs in 2007 after what he describes as
a "void in the marketplace" for restaurants that encourage children
to be themselves and play while parents can enjoy a quality meal in a
casual setting without being made to feel uncomfortable as is often
the case when you dine out with young children.
In addition to its family-friendly vibe, Giggles N' Hugs is also
known for their own creation called "Mom's Tricky Treat Sauce," which
hides pureed vegetables in kids' favorite meals such as pizza, pastas
and macaroni and cheese.
"We plan to extend the quality experience of our differentiated
concept into on-brand products that can be sold within our physical
locations and through outside retail partners," said Joey Parsi,
Giggles N' Hugs founder, president and CEO. "These items will include
branded children's clothing, frozen foods with our Mom's Tricky Treat
Sauce, coloring books, toys and other children related products."
Giggles N' Hugs has become a hot spot for all parents including
Hollywood celebrities such as Adam Sandler, Mark Wahlberg, Halle
Berry, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, among others. Giggles N' Hugs
has also been featured in many news and entertainment publications
such as Bloomberg Businessweek, Forbes, People Magazine, US Magazine
and the New York Post.
"We anticipate that the newest location in the Topanga Mall will
perform as strong as, if not better than Giggles N' Hugs Century
City, thereby increasing the total revenues and cash flow of the
company substantially in comparison to where we are today," said Joey
Parsi, Chairman and CEO of Giggles N' Hugs.
