MEET OUR CEO

JOHN BORNOTY

“Of course I was pleased that The Big Salad concept was a success,” says Bornoty. “But I also discovered that I was meant to do this. I’ve always enjoyed meeting and working with people,” he adds. “If you don’t like people, don’t get into the restaurant business! Delicious, fresh food is only one element to an enjoyable dining experience. Customers want to feel welcomed and relaxed. As often as I am able, I want to say hello to each customer, to make sure that they love the food and are enjoying the experience.”
