A new salad bar has injected a fresh new offering into Pavilions Palm Beach taking up one of the last retail spaces available in the centre.

Dalas Kitchen Salad Bar started operating on the weekend from a 15sqm shipping container outside of the Fifth Ave entrance after signing a five-year lease.

The new food outlet brings Pavilions’ occupancy rate up to 99 per cent, which is the highest leasing level since Consolidated Properties Group and CVS Lane Capital Partners acquired the centre in 2017 and commenced a multi-million-dollar refurbishment.

Dalas Kitchen Salad Bar co-owner Jess Davies, who runs the business with her partner Michael Davies, said they decided to open a new shop in Palm Beach after a strong response to their first salad bar in Nobby Beach.

“We were keen to open up in Palm Beach because it has a similar vibe to Nobby Beach which we love,” Ms Davies said.

“This time we’re going for a kiosk because we wanted to try something different, and the shipping container style also adds another point of interest.”

She said they had decided to focus on making salads after spying a gap in the market.

“Most places do salads as an afterthought – they are kind of thrown together for the cabinet – whereas we have spent a year before opening in Nobby Beach perfecting the recipes and specialising in really good salads,” she said.

“Our customers are quite diverse from families to young couples, corporates and older people so we have definitely struck a chord.”

Consolidated Properties Group National Manager Retail Leasing Rob Clifton said they were thrilled to have Dalas Kitchen Salad Bar as part of the Pavilions line up.

“Dalas brings a really good fresh salad offering to Pavilions which we’re sure our customers will enjoy and nicely complements the other food outlets and fitness offerings in the centre,” Mr Clifton said.

“Pavilions Palm Beach retail tenancies are now fully let, with one kiosk spot available which is testament to the huge amount of work we’ve put in since acquiring the centre and the subsequent refurbishment.”
