Salata Salad Kitchen has signed on to join the mix of retailers and restaurants coming to Halcyon in Alpharetta.
The quick-service salad chain is slated to occupy 2,800 square feet in the development with 55 seats located across from CMX Cinébistro and between Popbar and CT Cantina Taqueria.
It will be owned by Henry Investment Group (HIG) which operates Salata in the Atlanta market under Unbeleafable Holdings, LLC, and is projected to open in the first quarter of 2020.
HIG has nine existing Salata outposts locally.
The Houston, Texas-based franchise entered Georgia at Atlantic Station in 2017, followed by additional restaurants in downtown, Peachtree Corners, Johns Creek, Alpharetta, and Marietta.
HIG plans to operate 20 locations in the greater Atlanta area by 2022, including soon-to-open Midtown and Reynoldstown outposts.
“We identify strongly with Halcyon’s efforts to advance health and wellness and are confident Salata will be a positive addition to that initiative,” Jeff Hunter, vice president of operations at HIG, said in a press release this week.
“As we continue to break down the barriers to fresh, nutrient-filled food, it’s important to seek out spaces that are driven by a desire to build a connection. With our shared interest in community investment, Halcyon is an ideal home for Salata to amplify our goal of providing welcoming atmospheres for eating well.”
Earlier this year, Salata unveiled its first rebrand and restaurant redesign.
Salata also plans to roll out the second phase of its rebrand later this summer with delivery, a new tech suite, and loyalty program/app.
Salata joins a roster of local, first-to-market and national food and beverage tenants at the 135-acre, mixed-use Halcyon.
Several restaurants begin opening their doors on or before Sept. 18, including Halcyon’s Market Hall with six different food stalls overlooking the Village Green, Cherry Street Brewpub, CT Cantina Taqueria, It’s a Sweet Life bakery, Kilwins, and Popbar.
Retailers including RW Design & Exchange and Mercedes-Benz Experience Center by RBM of Alpharetta will also be among the first wave of tenants to open the public, followed by CMX Cinébistro on Sept. 27.
