The Big Salad is celebrating the grand opening of its seventh location at a place where nutrition and healthy dining choices are especially encouraged – the University of Michigan Hospital Café on the Ann Arbor health care campus.
The Big Salad is teaming up with Aramark Healthcare – food service management for University Hospital – to operate a freestanding counter service location, as well as a gourmet salad bar where customers can create their own salad.
In addition, The Big Salad collaborated with Aramark Healthcare and U-M Health System to offer menu items which meet nutritional guidelines under the MHealthy Dining Program. The program takes into account portion sizes and limits on fat content, sodium and sugars. The MHealthy menu items are reviewed and approved by U-M registered dietitians.
“We’re excited to be a part of the dining scene at U-M University Hospital,” said John Bornoty, The Big Salad founder and CEO. “We’re bringing more fresh, fast and healthy food choices to U-M hospital staff, outpatients, as well as visitors.”
Bornoty noted this is The Big Salad’s second location in a health care setting. Last October, The Big Salad opened Nourish by The Big Salad at AL!VE, the Hayes Green Beach Memorial Hospital’s experience-based destination health care park in Charlotte, Michigan, just west of Lansing.See the latest posts on our homepage
