Giardino Gourmet Salads Continues Aggressive South Florida Expansion With Two New Restaurant Openings in North Ft. Lauderdale and Davie

Giardino Gourmet Salads, the premiere South Florida-based fast casual concept focused on garden-to-bowl nutrition, continues its 2018 strategic development with the opening of two new restaurants in Ft. Lauderdale and Davie, FL in February. According to co-founder Kenny Lugo, the brand’s growth is specifically focused on building restaurants in vibrant communities with a diverse customer base where there is a real need for alternatives to traditional fast food.

Giardino Gourmet Salads began with a vision in 2004 by founders Ody and Kenny Lugo, a former Miami-Dade County teacher and Miami-Dade County firefighter respectively. Today, the fast casual salad, wrap and bowl concept sees room for additional 10 units across Ft. Lauderdale, including a downtown location, over the next few years in addition to growth up the state of Florida.

Giardino Gourmet Salads menu includes globally inspired salads, wraps, grain bowls, soups and sandwiches. What sets Giardino Gourmet Salads apart from the competition is its one-of-a-kind approach to the guest experience and its focus on Nutritional Empowerment®. Every guest has the ability to customize a wide variety of salads, wraps and grain bowls per their nutritional needs from more than 60 fresh ingredients.

With 17 units currently open and dozens more in the pipeline, the brand is actively seeking new owners that want to be a part of their community for a very long time.
