Chop’t Creative Salad Company is a fast-casual concept specializing in chopped salads. Customers choose from a variety of vegetables, meats, cheese, fruits and scratch-made artisanal dressings to create a salad. They can also choose from seasonal specials. Colin McCabe and Tony Shure opened the first Chop’t Creative Salad Company in New York City in early 2001 and the privately owned company now operates 21 units in New York State; Washington, D.C.; Virginia; and Maryland. Original investor Nick Marsh from GrowthPoint Partners was joined in 2012 by the private equity firm Morehead Capital to further expand the concept.
