It all started with a question (and possibly a tired sigh)
“Why can’t we get something fresh and healthy from a drive-thru that tastes great, too?” Roushan and her husband Tony, founders of Salad & Go, noticed that you could get food on-the-go that was cheap and convenient, but it wasn’t good for you; and you could get good-for-you food at a sit-down restaurant or even some fast-casual places, but it wasn’t cheap or convenient.
Enter executive chef Daniel Patino. Roushan and Tony were convinced if they could create a menu of craveable salads using the highest quality fresh ingredients at affordable prices, with the convenience of a drive-thru, they could help improve the health of America. They asked Chef Patino to join them on their adventure, and soon the team was off!
The first Salad and Go opened on a sunny and hopeful day in February 2013 on Gilbert & Guadalupe Roads in Gilbert, Arizona. Demand was so huge, they sold out early on their first day! What started with a question has become a mission – for better, healthier drive-thru fast food for everyone.
