September 30, 2011 // Franchising.com // CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. (September 29, 2011) – Beginning Oct. 3, Saladworks customers will earn points for every item purchased – from salads and wraps to cookies and drinks – and be able to redeem them at any participating store.
With the Fresh Fan Club card, fans will receive points for each dollar spent, allowing them to accumulate points to redeem for food or drinks.
The card is free and will be available in all participating stores. Fresh Fan Club members can begin accumulating points with their first purchase, even before the card is registered.
Just for registering their card on the Saladworks website, customers will receive 500 points; enough to redeem for a dessert, extra topping, beverage or soup. They'll also be given 1,000 points each year, on their birthday. The website will allow customers to check their point accumulation and review point redemption values.
"We value our customers and wanted them to know how much we appreciate them," said Chairmain/CEO John Scardapane. "The Fresh Fan Club is our way of saying thank you to our loyal customers, by giving them a quick and easy way to earn free food."
Redemption starts at as little as 200 points for a brownie, cookie or extra salad topping and goes up to 1,200 points for a combo meal. Other reward values include 400 points for a beverage; 500 points for soup; 800 points will earn a customer a wrap or panini; and 1,000 points, a free Fusion sandwich or salad.
