Houston-based Salata continues its rapid expansion with its new FIGat7th location – its third location in downtown L.A. and 48th nationwide. To celebrate, Salata will offer a free salad or salad wrap and a signature drink to the first 48 guests in line on Thursday, Aug. 6. Additionally, all salads and salad wraps will be sold at half-price on grand opening day.
The new Salata location is locally owned and operated by Salata franchisee Ara Simonian, who also owns the two other downtown locations in the Citi National building and California Plaza. It will feature an updated, refreshed look and new digital menu boards.
“FIGat7th is a premier destination for shopping, dining and entertainment, and we know Salata will be a great addition to its TASTE Food Hall,” said Simonian. “Our fresh salad and wrap options are perfect for guests seeking a quick, healthy option, or a leisurely lunch or dinner.”
At Salata, guests can create customized salads or wraps from their choice of fresh, healthy ingredients – including a variety of lettuce, vegetables, beans, fruits, cheeses, seeds, nuts, house-made dressings and more. Salads and wraps are assembled and tossed by staff and sold for a set price rather than by weight. Proteins can be added for a small additional charge and include chicken, seafood and vegan options such as baked tofu and quinoa. Diners can also purchase freshly prepared soups, fresh-baked breads and desserts.
The 1,500-square-foot restaurant will be open Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. For more information and a list of restaurants, please visit www.salata.com.
Founded in 2005, Houston-based Salata has nearly 50 corporate-owned and franchise locations in Texas, Illinois and Southern California. The “Next Generation Salad Bar” concept is gluten-free certified and offers tossed-to-order salads and wraps made from a selection of more than 50 fresh, pure ingredients including an array of lettuces, vegetables, fruits, cheeses, seeds, nuts, chicken, seafood and vegan proteins. All of Salata’s dressings, soups and sauces are house-made. Freshly made soups, breads, desserts and signature teas and lemonades round out the menu. Ranked among the fastest-growing small chains in the U.S. by Restaurant Business, Salata plans to open 40 additional restaurants by the end of 2016.
