Chop’t Creative Salad Company
Chop’t Creative Salad Company is a fast-casual concept specializing in fresh and creative gourmet chopped salads. Customers at Chop’t choose from a wide variety of all-natural vegetables, meats, cheeses and fruits to create a light or substantial salad tailored to their individual taste. Guests order at the service counter, choose from an array of salad options and watch the “chopper” whip up their salad with a mezzaluna chopper. Salads are then tossed with the customer’s choice of housemade dressing. Seating is provided via chic white tables, and large floor-to-ceiling windows are optimal for street viewing. In addition to dine-in service, Chop’t also offers takeout, delivery and catering. Colin McCabe and Tony Shure opened the first Chop’t Creative Salad Company in New York City in early 2001. GrowthPoint, a New York-based investment fund, is backing the chain with a $1.6 million investment to aid its growth.
