Chopt Creative Salad Company, a farm-to-fast-casual restaurant chain based in New York City, is coming to Birmingham, Alabama, later this month. With roots in reinventing the classic salad in 2001, the salad specialists at Chopt are opening their doors in Birmingham on Wednesday, February 24th at 10:30 a.m.
Chopt will offer a variety of ways to order its creative salads, wraps and warm bowls at The Summit, including curbside pickup, ordering ahead via app or website, and contactless in-store ordering.
In celebration of its opening, Chopt is collaborating with local partner, The Exceptional Foundation, an organization that serves individuals with special needs in the Greater Birmingham area.
With a focus on mindful sourcing, Chopt combines seasonal ingredients from local purveyors with authentic flavors from around the world to invent unbelievably craveable salads, bowls, and artisan salad dressings. The restaurant is constantly searching for inspiration to bring to its creative offerings. In addition to its classic and build-your-own salad options, Chopt creates limited-time, seasonal menus inspired by locations near and far.
“We are excited to continue expanding Chopt Creative Salad Co. with the opening of first-ever Birmingham location,” says Chief Marketing Officer Julie Atkinson. “Chopt has grown tremendously over the past few years, and we look forward to continuing to bring our globally-inspired food and fresh, natural ingredients to new customers at The Summit.”
As is the custom with each new restaurant opening, Chopt will celebrate Chopt Gives Day on Tuesday, February 23rd from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. For all digital purchases made that day, 100% of sales will be donated to The Exceptional Foundation. To encourage digital sales, Chopt managers will be outside assisting in-person customers with app sign-ups. Chopt Gives donations will only be applicable on orders placed via the Chopt App or choptsalad.com.
“The Exceptional Foundation is so thankful to Chopt for the opportunity to partner with them as they bring their amazing food to our area. Their mission to build a community around healthy eating ties in perfectly with what our organization is all about,” adds Susan Garrett, Marketing Director. “Chopt’s generous donation as a result of pre-opening day sales will help make a huge difference.”
