Up Inspired Kitchen​

Location:  Shops of Starwood, 5285 North Dallas Parkway Suite 400, Frisco 75034

UP Inspired Kitchen was founded by a Local Momma, so no wonder Plano Moms LOVE this sunny spot at the corner of Lebanon and the Tollway.

Owned by Rachel Phillips-Luther and her husband, Mike. Rachel (who goes by Rae) was previously the CMO of Zoë’s Kitchen. She took her love of Zoë’s clean approach and added sunny vibes, a stellar patio, a playhouse, toy cabinet, and breakfast! (the mimosa sampler can’t be missed!)

UP Inspired Kitchen is open from 7 AM to 3 PM daily and offers a great selection of salads, wraps, breakfast faves, sandwiches, and smoothies served in a fast-casual setting. We also have a FULL espresso bar.

No more waiting in line at Starbucks- just order online from UP! Paleo, keto, gluten free and Whole 30 fans will fall in love too because they offer so many items to meet your needs.

You’ll certainly feel UP every time you visit because you can enjoy a delicious meal, with no added sugar or processed ingredients AND kids LOVE UP TOO! They play, while you chill.

Kid Tip: Their UP Cakes are a favorite, and they’ll even add a sparkler if you tell them it’s your birthday!
