Saladworks To Expand In Maryland And Add 5 New Salad Franchises | Saladworks To Expand In Maryland And Add 5 New Salad Franchises. Deal Marks Five Salad Franchise Locations Set to Develop in MD.

CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. — Saladworks, the nation’s first and largest fresh-tossed salad franchise concept, announces an agreement to develop Charles County, MD with its first Saladworks location.  Maryland is quickly becoming a hot spot for expansion for Saladworks.  With three locations currently operating, this deal marks five additional franchise locations planned for the state within the next two years.

Husband and wife team Lewis and Jewell Powell, both independent business owners, always wanted to open a franchise, but couldn’t seem to find one that they really liked – until Jewell had lunch with her sister at a Saladworks.

“My sister said, ‘you have to try this salad!’  I tried it and fell in love – it was really good, really fresh,” Jewell Powell said.  “After that, I knew that if we were finally going to open a franchise, it would be a Saladworks.”

“Happy wife, happy life!” Lewis Powell joked after his wife brought the concept to his attention.  “Truth be told, we chose Saladworks because we firmly believe in the brand.  It is an excellent alternative to what is in the marketplace right now.  I think Charles County and our region will find the Saladworks concept and product extremely rewarding.”

The next Maryland location, slated for the Annapolis area, is set to open in late summer.  Relying on the proven Saladworks concept and model, another set of first-time franchisees, Derek Morrell and Nicole Roudiez, were confident in their ability to operate as multi-unit franchisees with a three-store deal.

Multi-unit operation is also on the Powell’s horizon:

“We’re excited to be the first to bring Saladworks to Charles County, but also look forward to expanding throughout the mid-Atlantic region,” the Powell’s said.

“Both Lewis and Jewell Powell have such an entrepreneurial spirit and a strong business background – which is exciting for us about them becoming Saladworks operators in the growing area of Maryland,” said Founder/CEO, John Scardapane.

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.
