Salata will open a location on St. Simons Island this spring. Located at 2207 Demere Rd., St. Simons Island, GA 31522, this is the first Salata on St. Simons Island, and the 11th in Georgia.
The new Salata will offer guests fully customizable, built-to-order salads and wraps, soups and organic teas and lemonades. All fresh fruits, vegetables and lean proteins will be prepared and chopped daily in-house. Additionally, the St. Simons location will source its shrimp locally, using Wild Caught Local Shrimp from Georgia. With five salad bases, more than 50 toppings, and 11 house-made, gluten-free dressings, guests can create meals tailored to their lifestyle. Warm grains will also be available as a topping, another unique offering at the St. Simons location. Guests can earn points toward rewards with every purchase by signing up for Salata’s Tastemaker Rewards program.
The St. Simons Island Salata is owned and operated by Justin Henshaw of Henshaw Companies. With the addition of Salata, Henshaw Companies now owns 9 restaurants from 5 restaurant concepts and locally employs between 70-100 employees.
“As we continue expansion throughout Georgia, the St. Simons location helps us to advance our goal as a brand to bring Salata to markets that share our passion for food, active lifestyles and sense of community,” says Michelle Bythewood, Salata president. “Justin is an ideal partner for us because of the experience and passion he brings to the brand, and we are thrilled to be opening in a market as unique as St. Simons.”
The St. Simons location will be the first Georgia location to feature an online order pick-up window, which allows guests easy accessibility and convenience.
"I've been fascinated with salad concepts for quite sometime, and I was introduced to Salata as one of the best during a visit to Dallas,” says Henshaw. “After visiting, I instantly fell in love with Salata and thought it would be a great addition to St. Simons. It checked all the boxes of providing fresh, healthy options, convenience and satisfying portions. Every time you go into a Salata, there are literally millions of combinations you can try, making it a fresh and new experience each time."
