Another twist on Chipotle-style fast-casual – CHOP5 Salad Kitchen debuts in Columbus
Written by Business First
CHOP5 Salad Kitchen may be just four months old, but it is eager to grow and that includes sites beyond Central Ohio.
The Columbus-based fast-casual salad eatery opened at 2044 Polaris Parkway in November.
“Our original plan was to do four stores in four cities,” Allen Hertzman, one of five partners in the business, told me.
The goal was ambitious because that ownership group is spread across the U.S.
“We want to be involved with people with the same DNA,” Brian Mills, one of the partners, said. “We can grow rapidly because we can go to people we already know and like who will follow the pillars of our business — business relations, friends. We don’t have to be a franchisor.”
