Following successful openings of Just Salad in Raleigh and Charlotte last year, Raleigh-based Cattell Street Brands announced its third North Carolina location in Chapel Hill at Village Plaza. Just Salad is New York City’s favorite healthy food destination that cultivates healthier lifestyles by serving fresh, delicious and affordable nutritious food prepared from scratch daily with quick made to order service.

To kick off the official grand opening on Saturday, September 19, Just Salad will offer 50 percent off all orders placed in-restaurant and the first 100 people to visit will receive a Just Salad reusable tote and swag. Additionally, from September 20 through September 26, guests ordering pick-up for the first time through the ​website​ will receive 50 percent off their order when using code CHAPELHILL50​. Maximum discount value $20.

“We always loved eating at Just Salad when we were living and working in New York and decided to invest in this brand because we share their ambition to promote healthier lifestyles, transcending beyond ingredients. We love how Just Salad is always thinking ahead to connect our daily choices to the bigger picture including health, happiness and the environment,” says CEO of Cattell Street Brands Peter Kim​. “Since opening North Carolina’s first location in 2019, we’ve built incredible partnerships and relationships with local businesses, universities, community members and organizations who share our mission and goals. At a time when health is a priority across the globe, we are happy to bring our favorite option for a quick and nutritious meal any time of the day to Chapel Hill.”

Healthy food made fresh daily with locally sourced ingredients and made to order in a “New York minute,” Just Salad offers a variety of salads, wraps, smoothies, avocado toasts and more. Menu highlights include the ​barbacoa market bowl, seared ahi tuna salad, avo blast toast and ​plant-based smoothies.

“Making healthy, sustainable food available to all is more important now than ever,” adds ​Nick Kenner, founder & CEO of Just Salad​. “This has always been and will continue to be our mission. No other fast casual restaurants in the area offer the mix of quality, affordability, and sustainability that Just Salad is so well known for.”

As Just Salad opens its doors, safety and health for guests and employees remain top priority, and strict protocols are in place to follow all recommendations from the CDC and the NC Department of Health and Human Services. From reconfiguring store layouts for more efficient traffic flow and minimization of communal touchpoints, to reimagining the in-store experience with hand sanitizer stations and contactless payment/delivery—every detail was carefully considered so that all guests and teammates feel comfortable and safe. Indoor dining will be open at 30% capacity, and guests are also invited to dine on the outdoor patio.

Just Salad also partnered with ​Kenneth Cole​ to bring fashion and health together with reusable face masks provided for free for all teammates. Masks are required for all teammates and guests. To learn more about Just Salad’s health and safety protocols visit our ​Health + Safety Guide​.
