There will soon be another option for lunch for busy people on the go in Johns Creek.
On Thursday, Sept. 13, “Salata” will open its doors at 11720 Medlock Bridge Road, offering custom-made and “tossed-to-order” salads and wraps. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at the new eatery at 10 a.m. that day.
Beyond opening day, the restaurant will be open each day at 11 a.m. It will close at 9 p.m. on every day except Sunday, when it will close at 7 p.m.
Billing itself as the “next-generation salad bar,” Salata was founded in Houston, Texas in 2005. Since then, it has expanded to more than 80 locations across the United States. There are already five Salatas in Georgia, with locations in Marietta, Alpharetta and Atlanta. In a press release, Salata says it wants to open 20 restaurants in the greater Atlanta area.
In addition to gluten-free salads and wraps — which can be customized with more than 50 toppings and 10 house-made dressings — Salata’s menu also offers soup, organic teas and lemonade, cookies and breads.
On opening day, 25 percent of sales at the Salata in Johns Creek will be donated to Johnny & Xena’s Spread the Words Foundation, which works to improve the lives of people living with autism.
The first 50 people to visit Salata on opening day will receive a coupon for a free salad, redeemable on their next visit. Guests can also enter a raffle to win gift cards, prizes and free salad for a year.
