RICHMOND, Texas, Sept. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Anyone who knows anything about one of America's most self-assured states will tell you: It's always bigger in Texas. Celma and Mauro Forastieri are putting action to words as they open the newest location today of The Big Salad—the seventh outlet in the healthy eating chain and the first outside its home state of Michigan.
The Forastieris, who live in Sugar Land, will operate The Big Salad in River Pointe Center, 20400 Southwest Freeway, right on the corner of Grand Parkway in Sugar Land, TX.
"Salads are the future," says Mauro, a chemical engineer who has worked in sales and marketing his entire adult life, although never in the restaurant business. At this new venture, his wife, Celma, who is a lawyer and artist who also is in the business of building homes, assumes the management duties at The Big Salad location, including hiring of staff.
Their new 28-seat, 1,600-square-foot restaurant offers The Big Salad's healthy and popular fresh food menu, with more than 17 million possible combinations of hand-crafted iceberg, romaine, or spinach salads, and a choice of 40 toppings and 30 varieties of dressings. In addition, diners may choose from a selection of fresh-made sandwiches and wraps, and soup options featuring longtime customer favorites, plus an ever-changing array of flavors – just to keep things interesting. The Forastieris invite diners to give this fresh new dining option a try.
The new location, while the first for the Lone Star State, will definitely not be the last.
"We're coming to Texas in a big way," says The Big Salad's John Bornoty, the chain's founder and CEO, referring to plans underway to open as many as five locations in the Houston area, with additional restaurant openings planned for Austin and Dallas.
