The Irving location combines all of the elements that define the Snappy Salads experience. The restaurant prides itself on serving high-quality food while incorporating environmentally-aware building materials like reclaimed wood, recycled porcelain, beer and wine bottle countertops, low-watt lighting, and long gathering tables that promote neighborly conversations. The Irving location, on the east side of MacArthur just north of Tuscan Drive between Highway 114 and the George Bush Tollway, features salvaged wood from Pleasant View Baptist Church (on Fisher Road and Mockingbird Lane near White Rock Lake), which was built in the 1920s with trees that are thought to have predated the Jamestown Settlement in 1607.
The Las Colinas area has experienced a resurgence of growth over the last three years and not only has a large daytime population of young professionals, but also an expanding area of new homes in the immediate area.
“We’ve been searching for the perfect location in Las Colinas for quite a while. We found a prominent building with plenty of parking in an easily accessible portion of MacArthur,” said Chris Dahlander, founder and CEO of Snappy Salads. “We’re especially excited about this location as we are adding a serene outdoor seating area overlooking a grassy knoll that will provide our guests a respite from their normal active lives.”
Like all other locations, Snappy Salads in Las Colinas will offer online and call-ahead ordering, as well as catering for the convenience of its guests. Snappy Salads offers more than 14 distinctive menu salads as well as a create-your-own option. All soups and salad dressings are made on site at each location. All-natural chicken and hormone- and antibiotic-free sirloin are cooked over mesquite. Produce is received three days a week in order to serve the freshest salad possible.
“All I wanted to do when I opened the first location was to offer people like me a high-quality salad in a place with a cool vibe. My main mission continues with this newest location,” Dahlander said.
