Deal Brings Total of 14 Salad Franchises
To California. Orange County, CA Becomes Salad Franchise
Company's Newest West Coast Hot Spot.
CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. - Saladworks
, the nation’s first and largest fresh-tossed salad franchise
concept, announces an agreement with a multi-unit developer for three locations in the Orange County, CA area. The first store of this new agreement is slated to open in at the end of 2011.
In 2010, Saladworks
signed two separate deals for a total of 11 stores in Orange County. Saladworks is proud to announce that the first location from this agreement is set to open in Costa Mesa, CA on April 1, 2011. It was after reading about this planned expansion in her area that new franchisee, Karen Weber, decided it was time to get on board. Weber’s agreement marks a total of 14 locations planned for this area.
“When I read about the first set of stores coming to California I thought, ‘this is me,’” Weber said. “I was looking into a lot of different concepts at the time, but I couldn’t get behind them. I couldn’t get involved with a franchise
that didn’t provide healthy food to its customers. To me, Saladworks
was the perfect fit.”
Weber is one of many franchisees outside of the concept’s core market that have signed on to be a part of Saladworks’ recent turbo-charged growth. Locations in brand new markets including Knoxville, TN and Durham, NC have opened within the last six months, with openings in CA, TX, and MD on the way.
“Not only do I believe in the concept, but I stand behind the way Saladworks
does business. Before I chose to get involved with Saladworks, I spoke with many other franchisees and heard a great deal praise on how much support they receive,” Weber said.
“This agreement practically sells out Orange County, and is just the beginning of Saladworks’ west coast expansion,” said Founder/CEO, John Scardapane. “Our Orange County franchisees, like Karen Weber, are seeing this development to fruition, and are truly an integral part of our growth.”
Saladworks, the nation’s first and largest fresh-tossed salad franchise
concept operates over 100 franchise locations in 12 states. In addition to its existing stores, the chain currently has over 60 units in development across the country. Saladworks locations offer a "fanatic’ly fresh" menu of flavorful salads with signature dressings, proprietary soups, Fusion and panini sandwiches. With the addition of the True Nutrition menu, Saladworks’ varieties of signature salads all average less than 300 calories. Saladworks was voted the nation’s number one salad franchise by Entrepreneur Magazine for 2009, 2010, and 2011.
