In May, about a year after the first location opened at 40th Street and Camelback Road in Phoenix, Fox plans to open a second Flower Child restaurant in North Scottsdale.

The 4,695-square-foot restaurant will be located at Shea Boulevard and 90th Street, in the Scottsdale Fiesta shopping center. Flower Child, the first of which opened last April, has been called a "second cousin" to True Food, Fox's more upscale chain of health restaurants.
