Dallas' biggest salad restaurant chain Snappy Salads is opening a branch in downtown Dallas, the center of it all. The branch is at 717 N. Harwood St., equidistant between the downtown core and the Arts District, and it's opening with something exclusive to the location: breakfast.

New breakfast menu items, served only at this branch, include a "sunrise salad" with citrus and grains, and a new breakfast wrap with eggs. There's Greek yogurt mousse and a toast with mashed avocado, of course.

The breakfast component addresses the different needs that downtown Dallas has. The store will observe worker-bee hours, weekdays only, from 7 am-3 pm, and is scheduled to open by the end of July.

"We can't wait to offer a variety of fresh, nutritious choices for breakfast at our downtown Dallas location," says Snappy Salads CEO Chris Dahlander. "This breakfast menu is a game-changer. Now you don't have to settle for the same old, same old breakfast. In a market where there's a glut of hamburger, barbeque, and fried chicken restaurants, Snappy Salads has created a loyal following by offering a wide variety of salads that have proven to convert even the self-proclaimed non-salad eaters."

In addition to the exciting breakfast offering, the downtown Snappy will serve the usual array of salads, including the No. 1 selling grilled avocado salad, with red leaf and iceberg lettuce, a black bean/poblano/corn relish, grilled avocado, thick-sliced tomato, and queso fresco tossed in a chipotle-lime vinaigrette; and the Bam Bam Salad, with spinach, arugula, artisan mix, red cabbage, quinoa, red onion, pulled chicken, dried cherries, and chopped almonds.

Guests can also create their own salads with the option of adding various proteins such as salmon, chicken, and grass-fed tenderloin.

Snappy Salads also just opened a branch in Frisco, at 5252 Main St. in the Frisco Market Center. Both locations will continue the eco-friendly initiatives established by Snappy Salads ever since it opened its first location in Dallas in 2006.

Tables are made from salvaged wood. Lighting is energy-efficient. Takeout containers and utensils are biodegradable, cups are made from corn, and most notably, they use paper straws. Yay Snappy! Guests can also recycle CFLs (compact fluorescent light bulbs) and batteries at all locations free of charge.

The company recently celebrated its 11th anniversary; these openings bring the total number of locations to 14.  Further expansion is planned for Houston and Austin in 2017.
