Giardino Gourmet Salads announced that its newest restaurant is officially open in Coral Springs.

Located at 1750 North University Drive, near Rita’s Italian Ice, Gyroville, and First Watch, a ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Coral Springs Coconut Creek Regional Chamber is slated for Wednesday, June 15 at 11:00 a.m. 

At this event, guests can learn more about the restaurant, tour the newest location, and meet co-owners Francisco and Yesenia Fernandez.

“We live and breathe South Florida, and we know that the surrounding community will absolutely love our salads, grain bowls, wraps, and soups,” said Yesenia.

She added that they go above and beyond your normal salad to a place of hand-chopped ingredients and unexpected flavors.

“Created in our own kitchens, our Gardner Chefs prepare an extensive variety of freshly chopped leafy greens, vegetables, fruits, proteins, dozens of dressings, homemade deli salads, sauces, daily baked goods, and handmade croutons. While salads are in our name, we have something to satisfy every appetite, whether you’re a vegan, looking to eat healthier, or wanting to indulge.”

Here’s how Giardino’s works: customers choose a base (salad, bowl, or wrap) and then can customize it with more than 60 fresh ingredients, including specialty proteins and deli salads. Each item is hand-crafted to order and mixed right on the spot. Additionally, Giardino also offers a rotating selection of soups, a variety of chips and snacks, and freshly baked cookies, among other items.

For nearly two decades, Giardino has drawn in crowds across South Florida for its handmade bowls and salads food rooted in a tradition of fresh and fast. Today, that set of core values, along with its tradition of quality, variety, and experience, still determines the restaurant’s direction and has kept the brand on solid footing — even during the heights of the pandemic.

Francisco said that when they learned that Giardino Gourmet Salads was interested in developing in this part of Broward County, they jumped at the opportunity to serve the best, fast, and scratch-made salads and bowls around.

“Now that we are open, we’re so excited to serve our community and provide our neighbors with the Nutritional Empowerment that Giardino affords,” said Francisco. “Because Coral Springs is and always has been a community that thrives when we work together, we’re going to do our part to give back through the restaurant. From in-restaurant dining to takeout, delivery, and catering – we can do it all.”

Giardino Gourmet Salads began with a vision in 2004 by founders Ody and Kenny Lugo, a former Miami-Dade County schoolteacher, and Miami-Dade County firefighter, respectively. With one foot anchored in tradition and the other firmly planted in the future, Giardino has spread to 14 locations across South and Southwest Florida.
