Restaurant Franchising Opportunity Saladworks Signs Three Store Franchising Deal For Texas | Restaurant Franchising Opportunity Saladworks Signs Three Store Franchising Deal For Texas. Three-Store Franchise Deal Signed for Austin on the Heels of Dallas Announcement.

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 Austin, TX area.  Earlier this month, the restaurant franchise announced its first Texas deal for three stores in Dallas.  New fans can expect the first Austin store in mid 2011.

Clint Wilkinson, Saladworks’ newest franchisee, spent over 15 years in the furniture retail business and hotel management before he decided it was time to be his own boss.

“I had years of operational and management experience, but it was time for me to do something independently, and franchising is the way to go to achieve your best chance of success,” Wilkinson said.  “I also wanted more nutritious, healthy food options in Austin, so when I came across the Saladworks franchise, I knew it was the perfect fit for me.”

Saladworks is sure to be the perfect fit for the people of Austin as well.  Austin, Texas has recently been named one of the country’s healthiest cities by the American College of Sports Medicine’s Fitness Index, as well as one of the “fittest” states by Shape Magazine.  Saladworks is proud to bring its nutritious menu offerings, including over 50 salad ingredients and signature salads averaged less than 300 calories, to Austin.  New fans will enjoy the franchise company’s True Nutrition campaign, which educates consumers about what they’re eating and empowers them to make healthy decisions when choosing their salads or creating their own.

Wilkinson’s belief in the Saladworks concept, coupled with its ability to bring more jobs to the city, has led him to set his sights to the future.  Saladworks is growing nationwide, and Wilkinson’s expansion objectives match those of Saladworks – for rapid expansion in Texas. “Three stores isn’t the end for Austin!” Wilkinson said.

“Austin, Texas has consistently been named to many award-winning lists for their health conscious lifestyles, recent job growth, and flourishing economy,” said Saladworks’ Founder/CEO, John Scardapane.  “Saladworks is proud to serve America’s Best Salads to one of the ’10 Best Cities for the Next Decade,’ as named by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine.”

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 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.
