Elderberry's in Salem plans to move locations

Posted: Updated:

Elderberry's in Salem will be moving soon, but they're not going too far. Restaurant owner, Diane Elder tells WSLS the smoothie and wrap shop be moving right across the street. 

Head to Elderberry's at lunchtime and you'll notice a lot of people at the restaurant enjoying a variety of healthy smoothies and wraps. The healthier options are an idea that started nearly 13 years ago when the store first opened in Roanoke.

"We came upon a fruit called the elderberry that's loaded with healthful properties, so we took our last name 'Elder' and added 'berry' to it and that's where it started," says owner, Diane Elder.

Eventually the store expanded to serve the Salem community as well. Now the Salem store will move into a much larger property that is owned by Roanoke College.

"A big difference students will see is it will be a larger restaurant," says Roanoke College director of public relations, Teresa Gereaux. "It offers more in the way of seating and meeting spaces, stuff like that. Right now Elderberry's is popular with students but it's kind of a small place."

The new College Avenue location will offer more tables, both inside and out. There will also be a conference room where groups can meet for business or school work.

"We love seeing our cups all over campus," says Elder. "It's a warm feeling. That is our reward, when we see happy customers."

A reward they hope continues as people begin heading into their new location within the next several weeks. Elder says they hope to have the new location completed by the time students head back for fall classes.
