New restaurant eyes spot at Shoppes at Barnes Crossing

Tupelo has a new national chain restaurant coming soon, it appears, and it’s unlike anything we’ve seen before.

There’s not a lot of information available on the site plan, but we do know it’s Salad Creations.

It’s set to go in the former Quizno’s location in The Shoppes at Barnes Crossing – where Bed Bath & Beyond, Dollar Tree, Margarita’s and David’s Bridal are located. And if memory serves, the Southern Ice Cafe was the most recent occupant of the old Quizno’s site, having closed in 2008.

Ever heard of Salad Creation? There are about 30 of them nationwide, mostly in Florida.

The company sells salads and wraps in classic, signature and premium categories, along with paninis.You can also create your salad

And here’s a description from a franchise website:

What could be more “Fresh and Fabulous” than a healthful meal in an exciting, welcoming environment? At Salad Creations, our goal is to provide an incredible selection of foods that appeals to everyone. Along with our menu of nutritious and tasty choices, we invite guests to “create their own” meals with the assistance of enthusiastic and service-focused “salad chefs.”

We know consumers are always seeking alternatives to traditional fast food fare, so we created a menu offering salads, dressings, wraps, soups and smoothies made with only the freshest ingredients.
