Original ChopShop restaurant will open at healthiest corner in Southlake
A healthy new restaurant is coming to a healthy corner of Southlake: Original ChopShop, the Arizona-based chain that specializes in salads and bowls, is opening a location at 2101 E. Southlake Blvd, #100, just west of Kimball Avenue.
That address has no shortage of healthy salads: It's next door to a Coolgreens, a Snappy Salads, and a Cava.
It'll be open for breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner with protein bowls, salads, sandwiches, breakfast items, juices, protein shakes, acai bowls, with their motto being that everything is always chopped-in-Shop. There's no chopping somewhere off-site, no late-night deliveries of pre-chopped items, the chopping happens there or it doesn't happen at all. If getting your produce whatever it may be chopped freshly is a personal priority, you've come to the right place.
The chain touts its diet-inclusive menu with something for everyone, from tofu to tofu and everything in between, and all items are fully customizable to meet any dietary need: gluten-, dairy-, and lactose- free, along with vegetarian and vegan options.
“We think our better-for-you, all day every day concept will resonate with the Southlake community and fill a niche that’s been missing in other dining options in the area,” says CEO Jason Morgan in a statement.
The concept was founded in Scottsdale in 2013 but relocated its headquarters to Plano in 2016. They were originally a sibling to the Bellagreen chain, but in July, Bellagreen was acquired by Ampex brands.
It currently operates 20 locations in Phoenix, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, and Atlanta. There's a second location coming to Tarrant County in far north Fort Worth, at the NE corner of Heritage Trace Parkway and I-35.
The core item on their menu is protein bowls, with greens, grains, and a protein. The most popular is the teriyaki chicken bowl, which can be served with choice of forbidden rice, brown rice, or sweet potato hash.
