Next month, Snappy Salads will bring its DIY bowls of eco-friendly, healthy fare to Space City.

QSR reports that the Dallas-based chain will open its first Houston location at 1920 Fountain View Drive next month. Snappy Salads opened its first Dallas restaurant in 2006 when founder Chris Dahlander found himself in need of a quick lunch that offered up a healthy alternative to the drive-thru. The chain has since expanded to 11 locations in Dallas and beyond, with plans to head to Austin in the coming months.

Local tree-huggers will find much to love about the salad-focused chain, which uses salvaged woods to create its tables, energy-efficient lighting, biodegradable takeout utensils and containers, and paper straws. Further driving home the eco-friendly vibe, the restaurant also serves as a free recycling spot for compact fluorescent light bulbs and batteries.

Snappy Salad’s first Houston outpost will open the doors on June 1. The restaurant will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday.
