Saladworks Customers Turn Pennsylvania Franchisees

Two Families Sign New Deals to Further Expand Pennsylvania Market

CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Saladworks, the nation's first and largest fresh-tossed salad franchise concept, announces two new agreements with franchisees to further develop the Pennsylvania market. A husband and wife duo and a father, son, and brother-in-law team are planning to open stores in Bucks County, PA and Lehigh Valley, PA, respectively. Adding to over 40 locations already thriving in Pennsylvania, these two new agreements will expand Saladworks' presence in the Bucks County and Lehigh Valley markets.

Franchisees Victor and Maureen Pulizzano of Doylestown, PA looked into franchising after Victor's job at a major bank in the region was eliminated. With over 35 years of experience and an entrepreneurial spirit, Victor saw this as an opportunity to be his own boss and launched a consulting and motivational speaking business. Maureen, a partner in a title agency in Philadelphia, knew that combining their business backgrounds would result in a successful franchise venture. While eating at a local Saladworks, the Pulizzanos decided this was the right concept for them.

"We share a passion for food, cooking, and ultimately the Saladworks concept," said Victor Pulizzano. "We're looking forward to our future together and our future with Saladworks."

Sapan Shah, Surendra Shah, and Miteshkumar Sevak are another family team entering into franchising for the first time. Father and son, Sapan and Surendra, live next to Miteshkumar, their brother/son-in-law. Already a close knit family, the team was looking for a business they could run together. With belief in the culture and system, this franchise family team was drawn to Saladworks.

"We're all vegetarians, so the Saladworks concept was a natural fit for us as consumers and now as franchisees," said Sapan Shah.

"Saladworks' mission statement has always been to 'provide a fanatical customer experience,' and there is no greater testament to this than our customers becoming a part of the Saladworks franchise family," said Saladworks Founder/CEO, John Scardapane. "Both of these teams are a most welcome piece of our large-scale development plans for 2011."


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 Focaccia 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. For more information on franchising or True Nutrition, please visit
