Little Salad Shop profiled by Inc. Magazine.
Inc. Magazine is getting its salad on. The Little Salad Shop, founded by Etkin Tekin ’12 and Jerry Choinski ’12, is one of 18 businesses to earn recognition as one of Inc.’s Coolest College Start-ups of 2012. Inc.’s profile of the Little Salad Shop — or “LSS,” as it is called in a video accompanying the piece — tells us that the High Street eatery hopes to expand to two other Connecticut locations, and might bring in $600,000 in 2012. “We’ve been working really hard on the shop and it’s really great to see it receive some recognition,” Tekin said. “We’re still in the early stages, but things like this get us really excited for the future of The Little Salad Shop.” Inc.’s profiles allow readers to vote for their favorite start-up via Facebook “likes.” With just under 600 likes, LSS is currently the second-most popular of the 18 startups, behind “Arizona Pro DJs.” Read more→

On its first full day of business, a newly opened salad shop on High Street received positive reviews from a successful restaurateur and a caution about pricing from a recovering carnivore. Of the 12 salads on offer, three have bacon and five chicken. Tekin said he wants the salads not to be “niche-” but universally appealing and recognizable, with an interesting touch. For example, the Dijon contains touches of fried chicken and the Country Caesar, whole wheat croutons. All meatless salads are priced at $6.58. The meaty ones are $7.52. With tax they come out to $7 and $8, respectively. Smoothies go for between $3 and $5. The round numbers mean not a lot of pennies are changing hands, keeping everything fast, friendly, smooth. The restaurant is also eco-friendly, due to recycled bags. Cory Cummings is one of the two full and eight part-time employees at the shop. He’s a refugee from Starbucks up the block at the corner of Chapel Street. Read more→
