Chopt Salad and Mixt Greens are two franchise concepts that specialize in ruffage. Healthy indeed. According to Chopt’s website there looks to be 7 locations in NY and 8 in Washington DC. Mixt has 6 locations in California (2 in LA and 5 in San Fran.) I’ve seen other concepts like it (The Big Salad) and I can already tell by looking at the websites and comparing the 3 that Big Salad is in last place. I’m glad there are finally healthy alternatives out there and these are 2 concepts that have the potential to have an even broader appeal. One of the stand out differences is the variety of dressings that Chopt offers. They even have a “SPA” dressings that are low in calories etc. Not surprisingly, they’ve yet to catch on in the deep dish mecca of Chicago for reasons I can’t explain, but I hope to see some of them popping up soon.
Here at the JAM we don’t discriminate on topics and what better way to start your week then to have a crispy salad after that pizza and beer you housed this weekend.
If you have tried both I’d love to hear your opinions on what makes one better then the other!
