Just Salad plans to make its reusable bowl program available for off-premise dining, for both takeout and delivery. The initiative is part of the chain’s annual sustainability report, released Monday. Customers who order food online in a reusable bowl can drop their dirty bowl at the participating store for sanitation.
A pilot is currently underway at the Just Salad location in New York City’s Murray Hill neighborhood, offering a “zero-waste” option for customers who order online, according to Nation’s Restaurant News.
Just Salad’s extension of its reusable bowl program to off-premise orders could help it keep costs on to-go containers down —which can cost 85 cents for each takeout package — and strengthen its brand halo, especially if it expands the test to its entire footprint.
