Just Salad, a popular fast-casual restaurant chain based in New York City, has grown its presence on Long Island to three operating locations.
The newest addition opened in Oceanside on Monday morning, situated at the Sands Shopping Center on 3535B Long Beach Road. The new location shares the same building with a forthcoming Shake Shack. A representative from Just Salad confirmed the opening to Greater Long Island.
A grand opening celebration for the Oceanside store is planned for next month, the rep informed GLI.
For those unfamiliar with Just Salad, the restaurant offers a menu featuring chef-designed salads, wraps, warm bowls, avocado toast, soups, and smoothies. Just Salad is known for its sustainability efforts, offering $1 reusable bowls that include a complimentary topping with every reuse.
Founded in 2006 by longtime friends Nick Kenner and Rob Crespi, Just Salad has experienced rapid expansion, with over 70 locations currently operating in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina. Additionally, the company has ventured overseas with three locations in Dubai.
In the past year, Just Salad has been actively expanding onto Long Island, beginning with its first location in Commack in January. Three months later, the company opened its inaugural establishment in Nassau County in Westbury. Another location is also in progress in Huntington at 350 Walt Whitman Road, with plans to open later this summer.
