America's Best Salads™
A Fresh Opportunity - - - In the News: Q2 Sales Up 15%
Saladworks is the nation's first and largest fresh-tossed salad franchise. Our model is simple: an efficient, easy to execute operation with strong unit economics. At the forefront of healthy dining, Saladworks offers fresh, made-to-order, entrée-sized salads, proprietary soups, and Focaccia Fusion sandwiches. Choose from over 60 fresh vegetables and salad toppings to create your own, mixed in the moment, personal favorite. With a nearly 30 year history, 108 open restaurants nationwide, and over 100 locations in the development pipeline, Saladworks is recognized as the Nation's #1 salad concept with strong 2nd Quarter results and significant growth projected for the remainder of 2014.
Q2 2014 resulted in a 15% increase in system-wide sales over Q1 as a result of increased customer traffic. Sales growth was bolstered by the current 'Springfit Salad,' seasonal LTO. Saladworks intends to keep driving sales with a new seasonal salad LTO to be rolled out in Q3.
In the second half of 2014 alone, Saladworks is on target to open nine new stores in the United States and at least five internationally. Five of those stores are planning Grand Openings in the next 30 days, including Rochester, NY; Grand Rapids, MI; Franklin, TN; Virginia Beach, VA and Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
If you share our passion, meet the qualification criteria and have the ability to deliver a high-level of customer service within your community while embodying our company values, it's time for you to become a Saladworks franchise partner - the brand that truly is the fresh and healthy alternative.
