CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Saladworks, the nation's first and largest fresh-tossed salad franchise concept, has announced that the Holmdel, New Jersey Saladworks location will be serving $5 entrees, including salads, sandwiches and wraps all day on June 15 as way to thank the City of Holmdel and their loyal customers.
Holmdel Saladworks won the '$5 Entrée Franchisee Showdown' in a Facebook contest where over 3,000 fans voted for their favorite Saladworks nationwide. The Memorial Day holiday proved lucky for Holmdel as its loyal fan base of health conscious customers and college students thronged the store and took home the 'hundreds of vote flyers' that franchise owner Harjit Bajaj personally handed out.
Bajaj has owned Holmdel Saladworks since 2003. He said, "we offer a variety of salads, all chopped fresh daily that can also be turned into healthy, whole wheat wraps. All our signature salads, such as the meaty 'Turkey Club' and 'Fire Roasted Cabo Jack' are generously proportioned, yet average under 300 calories. We also serve several soups, Panini and fusion sandwiches. Our popular 'Create Your Own' salad option lets you play with over 50 fresh ingredients to make your own salad masterpiece."
Bajaj added, "I am passionate about running my restaurant and love interacting with my customers, who come not only from Holmdel but Middletown, Hazlet, Keyport and Colts Neck, among others. Our spectacular Facebook fans gave us hundreds of votes within a few crucial hours and propelled us to the top. But a bigger thanks goes to the members of Monmouth county business community who have made me feel a part of their family for the last decade."
Bajaj owns another Saladworks store in Marlboro, NJ and in a classic story of immigrant entrepreneurial success, said, "I came to America in 1983 from New Delhi and created my life from scratch. Apart from a sister in California, I did not know anyone else in the country. Today, I own thriving businesses and I could not have done this without the active support structure of Saladworks management and my friends and family."
Holmdel Saladworks is open from 11am to 9pm, is located at 2136 State Highway 35-South and can be reached at 732-671-3388.
