Chopt Creative Salad Company, a New York-based restaurant chain serving specialty salads, has confirmed a new location in Wilmington, at The Forum shopping center.
 
Founded in New York City in 2001 by best friends Tony Shure and Colin McCabe, Chopt has expanded to more than 40 restaurants in New York, Washington, D.C., Virginia, Maryland and North Carolina. Chopt currently has two locations in Charlotte and one in Raleigh.
 
“We're incredibly excited to continue our growth in North Carolina,” McCabe said. “We've received such a warm welcome from the Charlotte and Raleigh communities, and we look forward to building our relationships with them and others in the coming months.”
 
McCabe and Shure say Chopt aims to change the way America eats through craveable, globally inspired salads and vegetable dishes. Seasonal ingredients are sourced from local purveyors and combined with authentic flavors from around the world offering a new kind of fast food.  
 
The Chopt menu is focused on health and flavor, while still being convenient, accessible and affordable, say its founders. It includes classic salads, grain and noodle bowls with greens, warm kale and quinoa bowls, destination salads, which change every 60 days, and soup and salad combos. Customers also have the option to create their own salads, bowls or sandwiches.
 
Chopt Creative Salad Company will be located in Suite E at The Forum, 1125 Military Cutoff Road, and is expected to open this summer.

"We’re very excited that Chopt will soon join us at The Forum,” said Alex Thorpe of Swain & Associates, the property management firm representing The Forum.  “Chopt’s commitment to freshness, quality and service will be yet another reason for the public to visit The Forum and enjoy dining and shopping at our great collection of tenants."
