Salad spot Chopt is coming to Ballston

Signs are up for a new Chopt location in Arlington.

The salad purveyor, popular with lunchtime office crowds, appears to be coming to the ground floor of the Ballston Exchange complex, next to Shake Shack and across from Ballston Quarter mall.

It’s unclear when it will open. No additional information about the new location could be found on the Chopt website and the company has not responded to an inquiry from ARLnow.

Chopt has existing locations in D.C. and Northern Virginia, including in Rosslyn at 1735 N. Lynn Street. Other locations include McLean, Vienna and — opening today — Kingstowne Town Center, just south of Alexandria.

In Ballston the new Chopt will compete with existing salad spots Sweetgreen (4075 Wilson Blvd) and Sweet Leaf Cafe (650 N. Quincy Street), each a couple of blocks away.
