  1. Are there any plans to open a Sweet Tomatoes in Alabama (possibly Montgomery)?
    I think your restaurant would be very successful here.

    Thanks in advance for your response.

  2. We would love to see Sweet Tomatoes come our way too in Mobile, Al.
    We lived in Tampa, FL for a few years and Sweet Tomatoes was a twice weekly visit.
    When we had visitors, we took them there too.
    Thanks for the recipes too.
    Love it!

  3. Is the prepackaged broccoli salad available at Costco in Texas? I have looked for it and could not find it in Arlington.

  4. Sweet Tomatoes is my favorite place to go here in Tucson. I love going as much as possible which right now isn’t frequently enough! That will change shortly, hurrah!

  5. Are you ever going to put a Soup Plantation or Sweet Tomatoes in Huntington Beach, CA? I would love to see one someplace by the beach.
