At Heirloom Salad Company, we not only make sure every bite is created with the freshest, cleanest, and most natural ingredients available, but that it's made exactly how you want it, right in front of you, no question. Whether you are enjoying one of our many Signature Salads, Sandwiches or devouring any of our baked goods and Handcrafted Soups, we hope the Heirloom experience is one your taste buds will always remember.

Whether it’s fried crispy jalapeños or Cajun Chicken, there is a delectable combination for even the pickiest of salad eaters at Heirloom Salad Company. Choose from over 40 fresh ingredients and any number of our chef-crafted dressings, such as Spicy Southwest Chipotle, to put on a green of your choosing, including baby spinach and freshly chopped Romaine lettuce. Can’t decide what you want? Then our chef’s Signature Salads offer unique and tasty alternatives.
Try any of our robust soups if you’re looking for an appetizing compliment to any of our salads or sandwiches, or just a hearty bowl and honey wheat roll. Heirloom’s original handcrafted soups are designed from scratch and after hours and hours of taste testing by our own top chef. Each soup is made day of, from the cleanest and most natural products available. Broccoli Cheese and Chicken Noodle are always on the menu, but try one of our five rotating selections that change daily, like our chef's rendition of the Apricot Lentil soup – don’t forget your oyster crackers.
NOW HIRING - SALAD CHOPPERS full or part-time

Like all our other made-to-order dishes, our sandwiches can come decked out in any number of toppings and dressings. Choose a meat, a cheese, a spread and any extra toppings, like tangy banana peppers or shredded carrots. You can stop and enjoy your cold-cut right there, or (as we recommend) have it melted and savor a steamy, hot creation. Our Signature Sandwiches offer new takes on old classics, like our Barbecue Chicken Melt on our hearty Rustic Italian.
