There will soon be a new, healthy option for folks looking for lunch in the Wildwood Shopping Center.
Chop't, the popular salad chain, has leased the space at 10307 Old Georgetown Road in the shopping plaza. The deal was finalized Monday, said Ralph Ours, a leasing agent for Federal Realty, which manages Wildwood.
Following the Wildwood has been without an eatery that specializes in salads.
The chain has locations in New York and Washington, DC, according to its website. Customers can choose or customize salads or "salad sandwiches," salads wrapped in flat bread. Options include twists on classic cobb, greek and ceasar salads along with a few more unique offerings, like the "Grilled Asian" and "Palm Beach Shrimp" salads.
Diners can also choose from a seasonal menu, which features salads made with local ingredients. Those offerings shift every 60 days.
Ours couldn't say when the new eatery would open, deferring questions to Federal Realty senior marketing manager Vanessa Lopez-Isa.
Lopez-Isa couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
A timeline would depend on the chain's construction schedule, Ours said.
