Chopt to open in Charlotte in late August or early September

Chopt Creative Salad Company is targeting a late August or early September opening for its first Charlotte location in the Park Road Shopping Center.

Construction has begun at 4201 Park Road Unit 70, which is near Harris Teeter in a space between the Charlotte Cafe and LALA Girl, a company spokeswoman wrote in an email to the Observer.

The fast-casual chain, based in New York, uses locally sourced ingredients and specializes in fresh-made salads and wraps.

The company’s management has said they’d like to open “a bunch” of stores in North Carolina, including in Raleigh and Durham, and plans are already underway to expand into uptown Charlotte.

The chain operates 28 restaurants in New York, Connecticut, Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C.
