Healthy eating from a drive-thru? Is that even possible? This month we’re featuring the antithesis of our recent Filiberto’s local spotlight, Salad and Go.
Local school teacher Roushan and her husband Tony wondered the same thing. While enjoying a Caesar salad at a five-star restaurant, they wondered why a salad that good cost $15 and was only available at a fine dining restaurant. With that, the idea for Salad and Go was born. They recruited the chef who made that very salad to join them and opened up their first location in Gilbert in 2013. On opening day demand was so high they ran out of food. Fast forward to 2018 and the chain has blossomed to 14 locations across the Valley.
The owners have been unapologetic in their mission to make quality, clean food available to the public with prices cheaper than most burger joints. The ingredients are almost all organic and are sourced from local farmers. They’re also known for lowering their prices as they expand, instead of increasing them.
The menu consists of 48oz salads, wraps, homemade soups, kids meals and breakfast items. So next time you’re out and about and need a quick bite, check out Salad and Go, the little local chain making big changes in the fast-food industry.
