Three (Profitable) Top Picks For You

Salad bars have grown to be one of the ripest topics regarding shopper safety, and where to go from here. As thought-leaders in the industry, we’ve spoken with our customers and done our own deep dive into research to compile strategic solutions to continue growing your salad bar sales and providing your shoppers with fresh options.

We’ve compiled our list into three creative solutions:

  1. Utilizing your existing self-serve salad bar
  2. Reconstructing your salad bar into an employee serving station
  3. Recreating your salad bar into a grab and go station


Salad Bar

If you already have a fully functioning salad bar, we’ve hand-picked solutions for your shoppers to help themselves while also decreasing the transfer of germs. We have found this is a great choice if you think it’s important to your customers to truly have a “hands-on” experience in customizing orders exactly to their liking.


Consider this: Communication is key and crucial to making customers feel safe. Make sure your customers know what to do, and educate them on the process. When first opening salad bars, we recommend keeping an employee there to monitor the area and talk to customers who may have questions or concerns.

Consider this: Spills and drips are inevitable if you are implementing new serving operations. Consider using anti-fatigue mats in these areas to ensure employee safety from slipping.

Containers and Pans:


Salad Bar

The trend of grab and go in food retail settings is skyrocketing due to its convenience, safety and reliable success. Consider converting your salad bar into a profitable grab and go space. If you’re on the fence about converting, we recommend you take a look at your salad bar sales even before these new standards were in place. Are you making the most out of this space, or is a refresh in order?

Elevator Pans:

Consider this: Chances are, this is brand new to not just your staff, but also your customers. So, we encourage taking it slow and testing these new concepts first. If your space allows, consider offering two concepts at the same time, such as grab & go and self-service in the same space to see what customers prefer.


As we continue progressing forward, we want to remind you of the new industry guidelines and creative solutions to implement into your new everyday operations. These guidelines have been compiled by HUBERT® from industry leaders like Kroger and the CDC, as well as loyal customers like you.
