Salata is celebrating the grand opening of its first Kingwood restaurant on July 13 at 10:30 a.m.

Located at 4523 Kingwood Drive, Ste. 150, in the Main Street Kingwood shopping center, the new restaurant will kick off the festivities at 10 a.m. with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by the Kingwood Chamber of Commerce and other local dignitaries.

The first 50 dine-in customers in line at Salata Kingwood will receive a free small salad or wrap. All of Thursday’s guests will also have a chance to win prizes, swag items and one lucky guest will win free Salata for a year.

Representatives from Shriners Hospital for Children and the Memorial Hermann Hospital will also be in attendance and a disc jockey will be on-site to pump up the crowd from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“We are very excited to introduce Salata to the Kingwood area,” says Shaz Amarsi, Salata Kingwood projects coordinator. “We are dedicated to serving healthy, quality food to our guests and we’re looking forward to supporting the schools, charities and other organizations throughout our local community.”

Salata Kingwood will donate 50 percent of the proceeds made on grand opening day to help support the medical rehabilitation of local boy, Seth Haynes, who was seriously injured in February after being struck by a vehicle while riding his bike.

“Our hearts went out to Seth and his family when we heard about his unexpected accident,” says Karim Haji, Salata Kingwood franchise owner. “We felt it was important to join the community in support of Seth’s recovery.”

Salata is known for its healthy, fresh and simple menu. The vegetables and fruits are chopped daily and the protein selection is fresh and lean. All of the dressings, soups and sauces are house-made and gluten-free.

Kingwood’s first Salata will be open from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday. The new restaurant marks the 56th Salata in Texas and among more than 60 nationwide.
