Our Small Victories campaign is to promote the achievements that are realized each and everyday but often go unnoticed. These victories, which can be as simple as eating a healthy meal or showing up for work, are truly unrealized Small Victories.

Our Small Victory Mission is Simple:

“With every task completed, every act of kindness shared, and every dream followed, a Small Victory is realized. At the Big Salad, we believe happiness is achieved one Small Victory at a time.”

I would like to personally thank each of you for all that you do in making The Big Salad a better place to eat, to work and to own. Every day you are part of our family is truly my Small Victory!

Very truly yours,

John A. Bornoty
Founder & President

    A small beagle from a canine rescue we were working with, ran into traffic on a busy highway. He was hit by a car and couldn't get up. My wife ran into the street, in heavy traffic, and picked up the beagle to bring to safety. The next car would have killed the beagle.
