Saladworks Coming To North Carolina. | Saladworks Coming To North Carolina. #1 Salad Franchise to Open Three Stores in Wake County.

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 Wake County, NC area. The first Saladworks location in this market is slated to open in early 2011.

The new Saladworks franchise owners are father-and-son team, Baldev and Unmesh Patel.  The Patels are no strangers to franchising, as Baldev owns and operates a number of quick-service restaurant concepts and hotels that his son helps to manage.

“We chose Saladworks because of the personal connection between the Home Office and the franchisees,” Unmesh Patel said.  “We’re looking forward to working with the corporate team and bringing the Saladworks concept to a brand new market in North Carolina.”

Saladworks has grown substantially from its humble beginnings in a mall food court in Southern New Jersey. The original salad franchise concept proudly provides its fresh, made-to-order, entrée-sized salads, soups, wraps, and Fusion sandwiches in over 100 locations coast to coast.  The Wake County, NC agreement marks another entrance into a new market by the powerhouse franchise, following announcements for stores in Knox County, TN and Orange County, CA.

"As we expand our presence across the country, we are excited to be moving into the Southern Region of the East coast with such an experienced and qualified operator,” said Saladworks’ Founder/CEO, John Scardapane.  “Saladworks is thrilled to be bringing America's Best Salads to the heart of North Carolina."

Saladworks, the nation’s first and largest fresh-tossed salad franchise concept, operates over 100 franchise locations in 11 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 and Fusion sandwiches. Saladworks’ True Nutrition guide to healthy eating introduces signature salads averaged less than 300 calories and new “Powerhouse Food” ingredients. Saladworks was voted the nation’s number one salad franchise by Entrepreneur Magazine for 2009 and 2010.
