It can be hard to land on a quick and healthy lunch (especially when burgers are just so damn delicious) but the arrival of The Big Salad might just make it a little easier.

Announced via release, the Michigan-based build-your-own salad concept has opened its first Texas outpost at 20400 Southwest Freeway in River Pointe Centre. The spot boasts that diners can build a whopping 17 million different salad combinations via its 40 toppings and 30 different types of dressings. Soups, sandwiches, and wraps will also be on offer just in case salads aren’t your thing.

The Big Salad first opened in Michigan in 2008, where it currently operates six locations. The move into Houston is part of a massive nationwide push, with plans to open 100 locations in “strategically targeted metro areas” over the next decade.

In addition to the Sugar Land location, at least five of those planned locations will hit Houston. Outposts in Austin and Dallas are planned for the coming months, signaling an even bigger push into Texas. “We’re coming to Texas in a big way,” said John Bornaty, the chain’s CEO, in a statement.
