This privately owned, local business has over 50 locations across Phoenix to fulfill its mission to bring healthy and affordable meals to all, or “fast food convenience without the health compromise,” as stated on its website. Items on the menu are made with fresh ingredients and no added preservatives, available by drive-thru or pick up only. By keeping their prices low throughout their multiple locations, Salad & Go stays accessible to its community, extending this ideal to the multiple ways that customers can order for pick-up; there is an app for either the iPhone or Android, easy ways to order directly from the menu on their site, and even on their Facebook Page.

Founders Tony and Roushan Christofellis sold their stake in Salad & Go in 2020 and are now putting their efforts toward making affordable lobster meals, using nearly the same streamlined service model as Salad & Go, according to Phoenix Business Journal. Meanwhile, What Now Dallas reported in November that Salad & Go’s dreams to make fresh, healthy food affordable for everyone continues to grow in Texas and Oklahoma, with even wider expansions in the works. 

Executive Chef Daniel Patino, often referred to as the “Culinary Ninja,” curated the menu to include salads of all kinds, wraps with unique dressing, seasonal low-calorie soups, breakfast burritos, and bowls with homemade salsa. Chef Patino has worked around the world to develop his own fusion style, earning accolades in the Michelin Guide from 2007-2010 while at Arcadia Modern American Steakhouse in San Jose, California. 

“The one common thing that brings people together is food,” Chef Patino writes on their website. You have to get out of your comfort zone and explore the different culture flavors to appreciate yours.” His dedication to whole foods and integrating tastes from around the world is on display at Salad & Go, even extending beyond their doors. 

For instance, every week their chefs partner with non profits to bring their international dishes to members of the community experiencing hunger and homelessness. They’ve partnered with nonprofits such as Child Crisis Arizona, Feed Our Babies, Phoenix Rescue Mission, St. Peter Indian School, Tempe Elementary School District, and Waste Not, among others, serving upwards of 4,000 healthy, whole food salads with chicken per week.
