Chopt in Rosslyn is moving a door down from its original location on N. Lynn Street to a smaller space and “eco-friendly” store model.
The fast-casual salad purveyor announced yesterday that the current Chopt in Rosslyn will close on Tuesday, Nov. 22 and shift over to a smaller space next door. That new location at 1735 N. Lynn Street will open six days later on Monday, Nov. 28. It will be open Monday through Saturday, 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 8 pm.
Chopt is moving into space that was once a Starbucks, which closed early last year.
The reason for the downsizing, a restaurant spokesperson told ARLnow, is that the new store model is “designed specifically to reduce their environmental and spatial footprint.” It will be about half the size of the current Chopt in Rosslyn.
The location will be a “completely contactless experience,” per the spokesperson. In other words, you’ll order from an electronic kiosk rather than placing an order with a person.
The new “sustainability-focused and contact-free storefront” is set to mimic the Ballston location, which opened in July.
More from a press release:
As a testament to Chopt’s dedication to improving customer experience, the Rosslyn restaurant features new QR code tableside ordering and delivery, and three self-serve kiosks to offer guests a completely contactless ordering process. The latest ordering technology makes in-store pickup and delivery easy, quick and convenient for guests to ‘chop’ the line. Reflecting the newest store model, as seen in Ballston, V.A., the restaurant significantly reduces Chopt’s environmental impact with a smaller spatial footprint that cuts square footage down by over 55%, streamlined operations, energy-efficient kitchenware and HVAC system to lower energy consumption by 30%, and GHG emissions by 21%. To fall into stride with all Chopt locations in sustainability and sourcing efforts, all menu offerings are served up in 100% compostable bowls made from sugar cane, which are capable of naturally breaking down without creating any new waste.
In addition to the Rosslyn and Ballston Chopt locations in Arlington, though there are additional locations in McLean, Vienna, Fairfax, and D.C.
