Popular Los Angeles salad chain Sweetgreen is set to open a location in South Tampa.

Permit-obsessed website Tampa Tomorrow reported that the Hyde Park Village location filed permits and will be just over 2,310 square feet with indoor and outdoor seating, adding that the 14-year-old concept partners with local farmers in whichever city they’re located in.

Pictures and video posted by the site show the 29-seat location going next to Salon Norrell Aveda just a few steps away from the Hyde Park Village Fountain.

The chain has an ambitious mission, which includes becoming carbon neutral by 2027, and Sweetgreen’s menu includes bowls for days (curry cauliflower, elote, “shroomami”), salads, a hot honey chicken plate, plus sides like buffalo cauliflower and focaccia bread.

There's no opening date, but this looks like the Starbucks of salad, indeed.
