There’s Nothing Quite Like CHOP5!

There are salad concepts. And then … there’s CHOP5 Salad Kitchen.

CHOP5 is the fast-casual dining experience that’s known for delicious and healthy taste sensations, prepared ultra-fresh right in front of you. Yes, it’s true. CHOP5’s chef-inspired chopped salads blend to perfection every ingredient, including our house-made dressings—there are 20 in all—so every guest savors the full flavor in every bite. In fact, we like to say the best way to enjoy a CHOP5 salad is with a spoon! Why? Because you can!

CHOP5’s Bowls are just as fresh and just as flavorful as the chopped salads. Prepared to order, we hand-select every ingredient then chop, top, plate and serve a perfectly crafted, beautiful feast for the eyes and tastebuds! Bundle up our fresh ingredients and house-made dressings in a warm tortilla, and you have a CHOP5 Wrap, the grab-and-go version of yum!

Did we mention this masterful magic happens in an upbeat, fun, positive, interactive store with team members who treat guests like … well, guests? Welcoming them, engaging them, and making sure the guests are happier than happy, so they can’t wait to come back. And most do. Many times a week.

If this picture sounds interesting, if you like making people’s day, then keep clicking. Keep reading. CHOP5 may just change your life.
