December 08, 2010 // Franchising.com // CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. — Saladworks, the nation's first and largest fresh-tossed salad franchise concept, proudly announces that new panini sandwiches are now available. The available selection includes Buffalo Chicken, Turkey Melt, Chicken Mozzarella, and Caprese panini served on grilled, seasoned sourdough bread – sure to pique Saladworks fans' interest and appetite in the winter months.
The Buffalo Chicken Panini blends Saladworks' original, spicy buffalo sauce and creamy bleu cheese dressing on sliced chicken breast with mozzarella cheese.
The Turkey Melt, a classic menu item, gets the Saladworks touch with sliced turkey, bacon, and cheddar cheese melted with rustic thousand island dressing.
The Chicken Mozzarella combines sliced chicken breast and fresh mozzarella with warm marinara sauce.
Rounding out the new panini line is the Caprese. Fresh basil and sliced tomatoes adorn mozzarella cheese, topped with Saladworks' signature balsamic vinaigrette dressing.
The panini line is yet another new, delicious menu offering from Saladworks. Earlier this year, the franchise added new salad ingredients to salad cases, now totaling over 50 fresh ingredients. New soups were also added to the menu this fall to pair with fan-favorite signature salads, create-your-own salads, and Fusion sandwiches.
"One of the reasons our create-your-own salad is such a popular menu item is because our fans want choices," said Saladworks' Founder/CEO, John Scardapane. "We recognize that, and pride ourselves on the variety of our menu offering. We know our fans will enjoy the new paninis as they have our fresh, made-to-order entrée-sized salads."
