The Big Salad Opens new location in Charlotte


 Grosse Pointe-based The Big Salad has opened its sixth Michigan location at a place where nutrition and healthy dining choices are especially encouraged — AL!VE, the Hayes Green Beach Memorial Hospital’s experience-based destination health care park in Charlotte, just south of Lansing.

The new location, named “Nourish by The Big Salad,” offers its fresh food menu to the health park’s café area with more than 17 million possible combinations of hand-crafted iceberg, romaine, or spinach salad combinations, with a choice of 40 toppings and 30 varieties of dressings. In addition, diners may choose from a selection of freshly-made sandwiches and wraps, and soup options featuring longtime customer favorites, plus an ever-changing array of flavors – just to keep things interesting.

In addition, the chain’s traditional day-long menu to include smoothies, fresh fruits, breakfast selections, and specialty coffees.

The newest location is inside AL!VE at 800 W. Lawrence Ave. Other The Big Salad locations are in Ann Arbor, Grosse Pointe Woods, Novi, Royal Oak, and Troy.

“Being part of the AL!VE experience at our newest location in Charlotte is not only a good fit for our business and our customers, it opens the door for us to explore similar ventures with health care and wellness providers looking to provide fresh, fast, and healthy food choices to patients, visitors and members of their communities,” says John Bornoty, The Big Salad founder and CEO.
