[03/14/20]   Subject: COVID-19 and SALTLIGHT STATION Operations

March 14, 2020


We thank you for being a supporter of our local family business since we first opened two years ago. Our hearts and prayers go out to those that have been affected by the novel coronavirus pandemic. We have been closely monitoring the CDC and local government guidelines to help contain the outbreak and we are committed to doing our part and taking additional hygiene and sanitation measures to protect our staff, customers, and local community.

We have made the difficult decision to prioritize the health and safety of our community and will be temporarily closing our Indoor Dining area and offering Takeout only orders for the next two weeks to help minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19 infection from person-to-person contact.

We do not take this decision lightly, as our mission at SALTLIGHT STATION is to be a gathering place for the local community. Our livelihood is supported by local customers who frequently enjoy the dine-in experience and friendly service. We deeply appreciate the mutual daily interactions with all of our customers and sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.

Please note, our Kitchen will still be in full operation and we will happily continue to serve you through our Drive-Thru window. Please allow us to continue to feed you and your family with healthy and delicious Takeout, Drive-Thru, and 3rd Party Delivery meals! For a contactless transaction, customers with access to the Internet may place Takeout orders online and conveniently pick-up at our Drive-Thru window. By the way, we heard a bowl of our no MSG Bone Broth or cup of Local Honey Lime tea does wonders for the soul when you are feeling under the weather 🙂

This is a trying time for everyone in our community and we hope that you will continue to support us and the livelihoods of other local small businesses that make our community great!

Nhatha and Evelyn

Collin County Black Chamber of Commerce

Collin County Black Chamber of Commerce hosted a very valuable workshop facilitated by Beth Jones, CEO, Leading Right SALTLIGHT STATION, Allen TX.

Many business leaders do not know about The Impact of Unconscious (hidden) Bias.For Leading Right CEO Beth Jones, unconscious bias happens when "you assign characteristics to people you know nothing about."Even if we think we're being fair to other people, we still make decisions emphasizing our own perspectives. Being able to control unconscious bias helps us move forward and choose those decisions that matter the most for everybody. What a great interactive workshop with a positive impact & tools.
Also present in the workshop were representatives from the Allen Independent School District, Allen Police Department, and Allen Fairview Chamber of Commerce. Thanks to everyone who came!

About Us

How did we get the name, “SALTLIGHT?”

Inspiration comes from scripture, as we are reminded to be the “SALT of the Earth” and “LIGHT of the World”. We hope our family business can help season and brighten this small corner of Allen. We hope our little shop could become a gathering place that makes a positive impact on the community.

How did the concept of COFFEE + PHO combination come about?

It was a long time dream of mine to open a community-centered coffee shop - I even drafted a business plan when I took a course on Social Entrepreneurship. As a Vietnamese native, I also love eating pho, and thought why not offer both of these craft comfort food items I love under the same roof?

How is our Pho different from other Pho restaurants?

Our Pho-losopy is to keep the menu simple, fresh, and use high quality ingredients - like premium cuts of beef for our tender Prime Rib Pho, slow-roasted Brisket for our Banh Mi Sandwiches, Shrimp seared-to-order for our Noodle Salad bowls, grilled whole Chicken Breast sliced-to-order on our Rice Bowls. Pho is traditionally seasoned with MSG to achieve the savory taste. We don’t use MSG in our cooking as my husband is severely allergic to it. We offer a no-MSG Pho recipe so families like ours can enjoy a savory bowl without the negative side effects of MSG. We hope you also enjoy it!
