Caryl is the VP of Concept at Just Salad and has over 20 years of experience in restaurant development.
In less than 3 years, she established development processes, design standards, and vendor relationships that leveraged Just Salad to grow from 5 store opens per year to a projection of 20 opens in 2022. Caryl shifted into her current role as VP of Concept to not only explore new platforms such as drive-thru but also focus on the next generation store design; ensuring the new prototype better aligns with Just Salad’s sustainability values.

Caryl started her career as an architectural consultant, graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Architecture from the University of Texas at San Antonio and currently resides in the St. Louis metro area.
