If you love a good salad and lots of choices, look no further than Lettuce Eat Salad Co. Situated in East Memphis’ Carrefour shopping center, Lettuce Eat offers fresh, fast, tasty salads in a casual and convenient location. At the helm is 25-year-old Kelcie Allen, executing her vision alongside restaurant veteran Ben McLean.

Kelcie, a native Memphian, spent her college career in New York City attending LIM College where she studied fashion merchandising. While in the Big Apple, she enjoyed the convenience of grabbing a healthy meal at one of the many salad shops. “It all goes back to NYC. I ate salads every day there because they were so accessible. Literally, you could find a salad shop no matter where you were. So, I was definitely inspired by my time there and it’s where the idea came from.”
