A new restaurant serving sandwiches without bread is slated for Detroit in spring 2021.

Founded by Marc Howland, Ryan Eli Salter, and LaTresha Staten, the restaurant raised $ 1.1 million in capital and has its first physical location at 2761 E. Jefferson Ave. in Detroit on the new Joseph Campau Greenway Connector near the Detroit River.

The site was designed with the security of COVID-19 in mind, although the opening could come months after a vaccine was launched against the virus that has killed thousands of Michigandans and crippled the state-run restaurant industry.

According to DBusiness, the restaurant will offer “Online ordering and pickup, grab and go, a window for walking and cycling, delivery, catering and a stationary drive through where customers can order from a designated parking lot and have their groceries brought to them by vehicle. ”

The concept was founded as a healthy sandwich option and includes classic sandwich options wrapped in leafy greens instead of bread, including chard, beet greens, and cabbage greens.

Howland, co-founder and CEO of Breadless, told the magazine, “I started Breadless after a 10 year period of struggling to find healthy on-the-go foods that fit my eating plan.”

The restaurant advertises gluten-free, low-carb and friendly on the go.

Hopeless hopes that it can show Detroiters that healthy food can be filling and fresh.

“Our goal is to help millions of people live healthier, happier lives and to make them feel more fulfilled by feeling good about themselves and what they are eating,” it says on its website.

Breadless found a major investor in Kal Vepuri, the owner of Brainchild Holdings.

As of 2010, Brainchild has founded 12 companies that it claims are worth more than $ 1 billion and total more than 175 companies.
