On Food: Fork & Salad brings the ohana spirit of healthy eating to Orange
At the corner of Chapman Ave. and Lemon Street in Old Towne Orange, Fork & Salad is serving fresh salads in an assembly-line, build-your-own style.
“It’s basically Chipotle with salads,” said Ted McCann, one of the new partners in the business that was originally founded in Hawaii in 2016 by Travis Morrin, Cody Christopher and Jaron Blosser.
“We’re all surfers and chefs,” McCann said of the team. “That’s one thing we have in common.”

Owners of Maui-based Fork & Salad use a mix of big restaurant suppliers and small, local farms to build their fresh salads and sandwiches.

On the smaller side, Blosser and the other owners vet and visit local farms to ensure their safety processes are up to par.
“We just made personal relationships with these farmers, and we know their standards,” he says. “It does seem like a lot of work, but we’ve been doing it for a long time, and it’s not that bad.”
