October 31, 2011 // Franchising.com // CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. – Saladworks, the nation’s number-one fresh salad franchise, will open a new central Pennsylvania store in Mill Creek Square at 2350 Lincoln Highway East today.
The East Lampeter Saladworks is owned and operated by Tom Barton of Lancaster. While this is Barton’s first Saladworks, he’s a seasoned restaurant franchisee with 25 years of experience.
“I’m a health nut and Saladworks allows me to serve customers food that my family eats,” Barton said. “I’m excited to offer the Lancaster area a healthy alternative to the all-you-can-eat buffets.”
“The East Lampeter store is another brick in Saladworks’ strong foundation,” said chairman and CEO John Scardapane. “We hope the people in the area become as fanatical about enjoying our salads as we are about creating them.”
A fusion of “fanatic’ly fresh” and healthy menu items, along with passionate customer service, define the experience every guest has at a Saladworks location. Saladworks offers all “fans” the opportunity to create their own fresh salad, which is then expertly prepared in front of them by a Saladworks team member; you create it, we make it. They can also choose from one of 12 Signature Salads. All of Saladworks offerings are chopped fresh daily in every location across the county. The chain also offers proprietary soups, wraps, paninis and Focaccia Fusion sandwiches.
