Main Street in Beacon just got a whole lot healthier.

If you ever visit Dutchess County, you know there is a plethora of fast-food and chain restaurants to stop by for a bite to eat. There are also some fantastic local businesses to choose from too with fresh ingredients, some coming from right there in the Hudson Valley.

Speaking of which, there's a new  "craft-your-own" salad spot that recently opened its doors on Main Street in Beacon. On Saturday, April 8th, 2023 Butterheads Salad Company became the new kid on the Beacon block owned and operated by Hudson Valley native, Sabena Branche.

According to the Butterheads website Branche "decided to follow her aspirations" and leave her career and "long commute" to create Butterheads Salad Company.  At Butterheads you'll find find "fresh, made-to-order customizable salad creations" as well as signature salads, warm rice bowls, hand-crafted yogurt parfaits, quinoa bowls, and parfaits.

They even make fresh Pico de Gallo fresh every morning in house!

Personally, for the last few years, my friends and I have always said we'd love a Chopt or a sweetgreens to open in the Hudson Valley. The fact that Butterhead Salad Company is owned and operated by a Hudson Valley local just makes it that much sweeter.
