Just Salad is one of the most environmentally forward chains on this ranking, particularly with its innovative system of reusable containers. It received a major cash infusion last year from funds including Panda Restaurant Group and the sustainability investment firm Closed Loop Partners, meaning you can expect a lot more from the chain, which has grown sales an average of 13% the past three years, with nearly $50 million in system sales.
