Started in 2001, Chopt offers an extensive menu of seasonal core salads, with options including the avocado-based Mexican Goddess and the Basil Mint Vinaigrette.
There's also a rotating selection of three salads inspired by different locations that change out every 60 days. Current offerings, dubbed Destination American Road Trip, feature options including a Nashville Hot Chicken Caesar, made with Nashville hot chicken, dill-pickled green beans, celery, biscuit bottom crackers and romaine with
Buttermilk Chive Caesar Dressing and Cape Cod Shrimp Roll Salad made with wild-caught shrimp, heirloom tomatoes, pickled radishes, celery, oyster crackers, summer lettuce blend and romaine with Green Goddess Dressing.
Shure said Chopt tries to source several products locally. For Atlanta, that means getting kombucha from Atlanta's Golda Kombucha and bread from The General Muir. He said part of what sets Chopt apart from other similar salad concepts including Salata and Saladworks is "the crazy lengths (they'll) go to for flavor" including its house-made dressings and that the salads are chopped.
