Shredded on West Broadway has closed

We are sad to report the salad shop Shredded that opened at 246 West Broadway this past spring has officially closed its doors. According to an instagram post, “lack of appetite” from the neighborhood for the Shredded concept, is the main reason the salad shop has closed. You can see their statement made on Facebook and Instagram here:

Three years ago, four local guys surveyed the South Boston landscape, looked at the food offerings and changing demographics of our neighborhood and thought a clean, local, fresh, healthy option was missing. With that in mind, we decided to open a quick serve, fresh salads and noodle bowls concept called SHREDDED. We created a clean and pleasant atmosphere that offered our own unique core salad and noodle bowl creations, along with some seasonal options, built around the Local. Fresh. Healthy. 02127 tag line. While we were able to take our idea and turn it into a reality, we, unfortunately, discovered there just wasn’t the “appetite” for our concept as we thought there would be. So it’s with a great amount of disappointment, mixed with a great amount of pride, having built a business, though short lived, with a hardcore group of very loyal customers, that we have to let you know we have decided to close SHREDDED. This closure is effective as of today, Friday, November 30, 2018. We will miss the appreciation, compliments, excitement, and feedback many of you shared with us over this last year, whether it was at our shop, on the street as we passed you on the sidewalk, or at our favorite Southie watering hole. You have become great friends and we hope to see you from time to time as we walk the streets of South Boston. We hope to bring you a new concept in the near future! Now, on to the next adventure!
Sincerely, SHREDDED

We are sad to see Shredded go and wish them the best of luck! Shredded is the second restaurant to close on West Broadway in the past few months. The Certified Meatball Company announced its closing back in September. No word yet what will replace Shredded or the Certified Meatball Company.

What would you like to see go in those spots?

  1. It was only a matter of time before this place failed. This place violated Mass law since it opened. Title IV, Chapter 255D, Section 10 A. No retail establishment offering goods and services for sale shall discriminate against a cash buyer by requiring the use of credit by a buyer in order to purchase such goods and services. All such retail establsihments must accept legal tender when oofered as payment by the buyer.

    Myself and many other residents failed to patronize this establishment because of their business practice which violated Mass State law. I’m actually surprised that it lasted as long as it did.

  2. Too bad i think their may be too many restaurants in the area…and only the STRONG will SURVIVE!!

  3. And not soon enough….thank the lord. Praying for a chipotle, bolocco, or something of the likes. This neighborhood needs a mexican fast casual.

    • And by the way….there was plenty of appetite for your concept, but not when it’s executed to poorest degree possible. Just all around TERRIBLE management… you guys will continue to fail so long as you keep up the clear dis-ingenuity.

  4. This may have done better if they opened on East Broadway…not exactly the go-to meal location for the Whitey’s regulars. They should have opened this on East Broadway, it would have at least given them more of a shot to make it.

    A Chipolte in there would be pretty sweet or if the burrito place next to Foley’s could move in

  5. Agree with Brian about the bad location…that far down West Broadway isn’t the best spot for 15$ salads.

  6. It wasn’t that the neighborhood lacks an appetite for this concept. It was that the salads weren’t very good.

  7. The salads here were not good and overpriced; if the salads had been half way decent, people would have taken the walk and spent the money. Wasn’t worth it.

    Hope another salad place opens in it’s place!

  8. Sweetgreens should move into the location and show them how to make an overpriced salad.

  9. i don’t eat salads, but really want to see more quality fast casual food options. seems like places are only really doing well if they pumping in drink orders. don’t see why there are so many duplicative mediocre pizza places
