NYC’s Just Salad opens in Boca Raton


Staff report

If you are looking for a healthy, fast-casual meal, head to Just Salad in Boca Center.

The New York City concept has expanded to South Florida with its first Palm Beach County location in Boca Raton.

Just Salad is known for its best-selling Buffalo Chicken Salad, Keto Zoodle Bowl, and Crunchy Avocado Toast, as well as its value-packed menu featuring over 10 items under $10.

“Like many New Yorkers, Just Salad feels right at home in Florida,” said Nick Kenner, Founder & CEO of Just Salad. “We’re excited to finally join the Boca community after hearing from our Boca fans for so many years. While there are plenty of healthy restaurants in the area, none offer the mix of quality, affordability, and sustainability that Just Salad is so well known for.”

The Boca location is Just Salad’s third Florida location. The Boca store will employ about 30 people.

The eatery fills a 2,300-square-foot space at Boca Center. Community tables and banquette seating options can fit 63 diners.

Just Salad was founded by Kenner as an answer to a simple question: what’s with the shortage of healthy food on-the-go? Kenner worked closely with a registered dietician to develop health-minded recipes that could be made in a New York minute, and in 2006 he debuted the healthy, fast-food concept in New York City.

Just Salad is the home of the reusable bowl, which is the World’s Largest Restaurant Reusable Program and a recipient of EPA’s WasteWise Award. The company recently pledged to send zero waste to landfills by 2022.

Online and app ordering will be available with a 20-minute pick-up guarantee. Hours of operation are 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
