A brand-new healthy fast food outlet is coming to Birmingham next month. Global franchise Salad Box will open on Great Charles Street Queensway in October, serving up an array of fresh and nutritious meals and snacks, made using ingredients of the highest quality.
With a focus on fresh vegetables and fruits, Salad Box offers salads, wraps, soups, desserts and juices which will help workers in the Second City sustain a healthy diet without compromising their time, energy or savings. And for customers in need of a morning or afternoon lift, Salad Box will also be selling coffee from local favourites 200 Degrees.
Salad Box will provide the perfect solution for time-poor professionals in the Colmore Business District and Jewellery Quarter looking for fresh, nutritious food on the go to match their healthy lifestyles. Customers will be able to select from a menu of delicious classics, or customise their own meal, with a wide range of vegetarian and gluten/vegan-friendly options to choose from.
Founded in Romania in 2012, Salad Box became an instant hit, opening twelve restaurants in its home country in the first year. And in just seven years, it has not only grown to become the third largest fast food chain in Romania after McDonald’s and KFC, but also a true international success story. Salad Box now has more than 70 outlets across 12 countries in three continents, with stores in some of the most important cities in the world, including New York, Miami, Paris, London and Rome.
The Birmingham franchise will be driven by Tara Johal, a proud Brummie with more than fifteen years’ experience in retail management in the city. Salad Box will employ up to eight staff, and the 1000 square foot grab-and-go site in Lombard House will also include nine covers for dine-in customers.
Tara Johal, Salad Box franchisee for Birmingham, said: “Salad Box is the future of fast food and there’s a massive gap in the market in Birmingham for what we offer. We’re a young, energetic city and the people who work here have been crying out for somewhere selling convenient, healthy lunchtime options to match their active lifestyles. I’m confident that our nutritious salads, wraps, soups, desserts and juices will prove to be a huge hit with busy professionals in the heart of the city.”
The site in Birmingham will be the second Salad Box in the UK. The first outlet opened on London’s Brick Lane in 2017, and there are plans to open more outlets across the UK in the near future.
