The newest Sweet Tomatoes, located at 10940 Tamiami Trail North in the Granada Shoppes in Naples, is scheduled to open on Monday, March 22. To celebrate the grand opening, Sweet Tomatoes has partnered with the American Red Cross, Collier County Chapter, to host a preview fundraiser event on:

  • Friday, March 19, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, March 20, from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.

For only $5.00 (five dollars), guests can enjoy Sweet Tomatoes’ 55-foot salad bar full of fresh, seasonal vegetables and tossed salads, made-from-scratch soups and hand-crafted muffins, focaccia, breads and desserts. Sweet Tomatoes will donate 100 percent of the proceeds to the American Red Cross, Collier County Chapter, a humanitarian organization that provides relief to victims of disasters and help people prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies.

Sweet Tomatoes offers a rotating menu of more than 100 original, made fresh daily recipes featuring signature salads, soups, bakery goods and hot pasta sauces, at an all-you-care-to-eat price.  All food is prepared without the use of artificial flavors, colors, additives or artificial trans fats.  A different food theme is featured each month and the most popular menu items are rotated every two weeks.  Items are showcased on a 55-foot salad bar and prepared exhibition style every 20 minutes.

“We’d like to thank Sweet Tomatoes for stepping up to help the Red Cross, and welcome them to town,” commented Deborah Horvath CEO of Collier County Chapter. “It’s a wonderful Partnership and we thank them for their community involvement.”

Sweet Tomatoes seeks to be a vital and contributing part of each community in which it operates. To reach this goal, restaurants offer a “Fun-Raiser” program through which charities, churches, schools, athletic teams, scout troops and other non-profit organizations may raise funds by hosting in-store events. The restaurants assist in marketing the non-profit’s event by creating master flyers for distribution and promotion.

Sweet Tomatoes in Naples will be open daily from 11:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. on weekdays, 11:00 a.m.-10:00 p.m. on Saturday and 9:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m. on Sundays.  For more information call (239) 597-1112 or visit; for more information on the American Red Cross visit Guests can also become a fan of Sweet Tomatoes at and follow Sweet Tomatoes on Twitter at

Love Sweet Tomatoes and it’s nice to see that it is also involved in the local and global community! Personally, I feel better about a service or retail establishment if I know it’s not just about the money for them.

I love Souplantation and eat there at least once a week. I love the brocolli salad, split pea soup, and the fresh made salad I make with lots of fresh lettuce. (all GREEN!) What is there not to like?

Thanks Sweet Tomatoes, it was great. Really well-run and yummy.

I have enjoyed eating at Sweet Tomatoes for several years now, first dining in the Orlando restaurant on International Drive. What a healthy meal and the dining experience is a delight. These restaurants are well-run.

I’ve known and enjoyed Souplantation in Southern California (Marina del Rey and Brentwood) for many years. Now that we live in Fort Myers in Southwest Florida, we were delighted to discover Sweet Tomatoes, and my son always requests us to go there whenever he visits us from college.
