“Dear Wrapstar Customers,” reads a sign posted on the storefront of Wrapstar West Hollywood. “We regret to inform you that we are closing this location due to low traffic and higher operating cost in this area. We are so appreciative of everyone’s support and the amazing reviews we have received from you. We invite you to visit us online @ wrapstarla.com…With Gratitude, The Wrapstar Family”
The fast-casual restaurant opened at the Ramada Plaza, located at 8593 Santa Monica Blvd. They opened in the city of West Hollywood at former Cousins Maine Lobster space (that business closed back in August, 2022, after being open at that location for seven years).
A note posted on the website currently states that “Wrapstar West Hollywood will be closed Thursday 8/10-Sunday 8/13. Please visit our Beverly Hills location or order online with Ubereats, Doordash or Grubhub. We appreciate you ❤.”—However, they are currently closed as of the posting of this piece on Monday, 8/14.
The announcement of their closure comes days after Yogurt Stop, located at 8803 Santa Monica Blvd, announced they were closing on October 2, 2023, after being open in West Hollywood for the past 15 years.
Known for offering a variety of signature and build-your-own wraps in the cities of Beverly Hills and Culver City, the wraps restaurant had a soft opening on April 1, 2023, with an official opening a week later. According to their Instagram account posts, the WeHo location was well received by the community. They had a strong opening with returning customers by the second day. Unfortunately they were not able to keep that momentum going.
Wrapstar specializes in wraps and salads. For salads, you can either choose from one of their signature salads or build your own. You can also put together our own vegan salad with Beyond Meat, tortilla chips (corn and flour), carrots, cilantro, garbanzo beans, green onion, pepperoncini, red onion, corn, olives, sesame seeds, and a cilantro lime dressing. The combination of flavors and textures was spot on, with the Beyond Meat providing a meat-like texture and smoky flavor, while the cilantro, onion, and pepperoncini added a tangy kick. There are also tofu options instead of chicken, giving a wider option for vegetarians.
