Bread Zeppelin Salads Elevated will open in spring 2020 in CityPlace, located at 1700 City Plaza Drive, Spring. This is the first franchise location of the Dallas-based fast-casual restaurant concept for Avalanche Food Group, which leased a 1,872-square-foot ground floor space in CityPlace 1, according to an Oct. 2 press release.

“The introduction of Bread Zeppelin’s standout, specialty concept of elevated salads to the Houston market is an ideal fit with the innovative vision of CityPlace,” said Ricky Rosa, chief operations officer of Avalanche Food Group, in a statement. “We are thrilled to be one of the first tenants of such a dynamic community and look forward to serving and working with guests from the area.”

Bread Zeppelin offers 12 signature salads—served in a bowl or in a cored-out, fresh-baked artisan baguette—as well as build-your-own options. The restaurant has six locations in the Dallas area and boasts fresh ingredients, house-made dressings and a range of proteins marinated and grilled in-house.

“When my high school friend Andrew [Schoellkopf] and I came up [with] the novel idea for the Zeppelin in 2010, we never anticipated such an incredible reception to the brand and the trajectory of our business,” Bread Zeppelin co-founder Troy Charhon said in a statement. “We are honored to be partnering with Avalanche Food Group as one of the early adopters within the remarkable environment at CityPlace and thrilled to be starting our franchise expansion in Houston.” 214-666-6065.
