Chopt’s Vienna restaurant has tossed its final salad

Chopt quietly put its Vienna location on the chopping block over the weekend.

The fast-casual salad eatery had its final day of business in the town on Sunday (Dec. 18), according to a notice posted to the door at 160 Maple Avenue West. Employees at the McLean location (1449A Chain Bridge Road) confirmed that the closure is permanent.

The notice didn’t provide a reason for the closure, and the company’s corporate office didn’t immediately return a request for comment.

Chopt can still be found in McLean, Fairfax’s Pickett Shopping Center, and Kingstowne Towne Center. Just last month, the business moved and downsized its location in Rosslyn.

Chopt opened at the Vienna Shopping Center in May 2016, joining a row of fast-casual restaurants that moved in after the local grocery chain Magruder’s shuttered in 2013. The strip also features Mod Pizza, Taco Bamba and Cava, which may soon depart as well.

Cava confirmed that it’s replacing the recently closed Zoës Kitchen at 418 Maple Avenue East, but didn’t say whether the restaurant will be entirely new or a relocation of the existing site.

With Chopt’s departure, the Vienna Shopping Center has four vacant spaces available for lease, including a 6,005-square-foot suite and the former Rose Kabob space, according to a site map. After Magruder’s closure, the 73,852-square-foot center underwent a renovation and reopened in April 2016.
