Homegrown hero of the health-conscious fast-casual space, Salad and Go, is set to join Scottsdale’s Pavilions at Talking Stick shopping center early next year, according to chief development officer Matthew Copenhaver.
Meanwhile, last Wednesday, May 24, Salad and Go also submitted a site plan review for an 800-square-foot location at Peoria’s forthcoming Shops at Lake Pleasant development, helmed by retail real estate firm, Vestar. However, Copenhaver told What Now Phoenix that that project is still in its nascent stages, and that a deal has yet to be closed.
At a time when $15-plus salads are the norm, Salad and Go has established itself as a cheaper alternative that doesn’t skimp on quality, with a menu of wraps, soups, and of course salads, including classics such as Caesar, Greek, and Cobb, as well as signature items like the Jalapeño Ranch, Thai, and Buffalo Chicken.
In an interview with QSR Magazine published last September, Salad and Go’s CEO, Charlie Morrison, said, “We are excited to continue bringing new Salad and Go stores to Arizona as we set our sights on new locations across the United States. Every new opening reinforces our mission to provide fresh, nutritious food that is convenient and affordable for all and is a reminder that we are the change the industry needs.
“At Salad and Go, we believe that everyone should have access to delicious, healthy food without costs, tastes or accessibility being a barrier, and we’re proud to be the industry disruptor that prioritizes democratizing fresh food for the communities we serve.”
