Inc. Magazine is getting its salad on.

The Little Salad Shop, founded by Etkin Tekin ’12 and Jerry Choinski ’12, is one of 18 businesses to earn recognition as one of Inc.’s Coolest College Start-ups of 2012. Inc.’s profile of the Little Salad Shop — or “LSS,” as it is called in a video accompanying the piece — tells us that the High Street eatery hopes to expand to two other Connecticut locations, and might bring in $600,000 in 2012.

“We’ve been working really hard on the shop and it’s really great to see it receive some recognition,” Tekin said. “We’re still in the early stages, but things like this get us really excited for the future of The Little Salad Shop.”

Inc.’s profiles allow readers to vote for their favorite start-up via Facebook “likes.” With just under 600 likes, LSS is currently the second-most popular of the 18 startups, behind “Arizona Pro DJs.”
