Salata opening 2nd Oklahoma City restaurant
Residents of Quail Springs in Oklahoma City will soon have the option of dining at a local Salata. The fast casual salad bar concept is celebrating the grand opening of its second Oklahoma City restaurant on Aug. 17 at 3000 Memorial Dr., according to a company press release.
The festivities begin at 10:30 a.m. with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony hosted by the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce. Representatives from the Oklahoma Regional Food Bank and other local dignitaries will also be in attendance.
"We're all about supporting our guests' healthy lifestyles with our fresh, nutritious menu, so we can't wait to open our doors on Thursday," said Bryan Jones, Salata operator, in the release. "I invite everyone to join us Thursday for this exciting celebration and for the opportunity to win some great prizes. In addition to building some of the best salads and wraps around, we're looking forward to supporting the local schools and charitable organizations throughout our community."
Salata Quail Springs will kick off its community support efforts by donating 15 percent of the proceeds made on opening day to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma, the largest private domestic hunger-relief charity in Oklahoma, according to the release. The organization provides enough food to feed more than 126,000 hungry Oklahomans every week; 37 percent of those recipients are children.
"We are honored to raise money for the food bank and support the important work they do to alleviate hunger across our great state," Jones said.
Founded in 2005, Houston-based Salata has more than 60 corporate-owned and franchise locations in Texas, Oklahoma, Illinois and Southern California. It plans to open 30 additional restaurants in 2017 in multiple markets, including Florida and Georgia, according to the release.
