Hello Bistro Reopens!

STATE COLLEGE, PA – Hello Bistro State College (126 W. College Avenue), the newest fast casual restaurant known for its huge build-your-own salads has officially reopened to the public.

Hello Bistro’s State College location temporarily closed in mid-March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The fast-casual restaurant is reopening for dine-in and takeout service with new safety measures in place, including new social distancing guidelines, limited seating, hourly disinfecting and plexiglass covered registers. (You can find more information about Hello Bistro’s safety procedures here.)

“We are extremely excited to be reintroducing the Hello Bistro salad experience to our friends at State College,” says Becky McArdle, Hello Bistro’s Manager of Communications (and Penn State alumna). “We’re doing what we need to do to provide a safe and delicious Hello Bistro dining experience for our guests, and we’re looking forward to our Hello Bistro salads once again spreading happiness throughout the Valley!”

Hello Bistro is celebrating its reopening by offering $6 Signature Salads from August 21st – August 23rd. Guests can choose from 12 different Signature Salads such as the ever-popular Apple Almond Chicken or Caribbean Shrimp. And for every Signature Salad purchased, Hello Bistro will donate produce to the State College Food Bank.

The State College Hello Bistro is open from 11 a.m. – 8 p.m. every day of the week. Hello Bistro has various options to enjoy the salad of your dreams, including contactless Hello ToGo pickup shelves, delivery, and socially distanced seating. Hello Bistro accepts Lion Cash and Moocho Funds.
