Healthy Fast Casual Concept Prompts Growth with New Location in Madison
Game on! Salads UP—Ann Arbor Michigan’s homegrown fast casual salad restaurant—has upped the ante by announcing the opening of its second location in Madison, Wisconsin. Located at 439 N. Frances St., this new location signifies the development of Salads UP’s plan to expand across Big Ten campuses. Salads UP will celebrate its grand opening with several VIP events beginning Wednesday, October 5th. The restaurant will open its doors to the general public on Monday, October 10th, at 8:00 a.m. CST.
Salads UP was founded by two class of 2013 University of Michigan graduates who saw a need for a quick, delicious, and healthier restaurant alternative at their University. S’UP customers can choose from an array of tasty salads and panini-pressed wraps, along with smoothies and sides. Customers also have the ability to “Mix it UP” by crafting their own salads and wraps, or can select from their Signature Salad options. The growing restaurant brand recently introduced a breakfast menu featuring a handful of egg wraps and breakfast bowls. The breakfast bowls have bases of either breakfast quinoa, oatmeal, or Greek yogurt, with an exciting assortment of toppings ranging from apples and graham crackers, to pretzels and peanut butter drizzle.
“The concept is fast-casual health food,” said co-founder Max Steir. “Customers go through a queuing system that acts similarly to the line at Chipotle. They watch directly as salads are chopped, paninis are pressed, and smoothies are blended right out in the open.”
Regarding opening Salads UP, co-founder Robert Mayer added, “In Michigan we saw a need for a high quality, delicious meal that was also fast, and thus, could fit into the busy lives of college students. All of our cooking and preparation is done on site every day, with an emphasis on featuring local ingredients. This includes everything from soups and dressings made from scratch as well as chicken, steak, and shrimp roasted in-house. This attention to quality separates us from many of the restaurants students may traditionally find on their campuses.”
