July 16, 2012 // Franchising.com // DALLAS, TEXAS – Greenz Franchise Systems announces today an agreement with Kimberly Taylor, to open Greenz Salads’ third franchise eatery and the company’s first outside of Dallas. Additionally, Taylor will be the first female franchise owner in the company.
“We are privileged to have new franchise owner Kimberly Taylor as a part of the Greenz team,” says Casie Caldwell, Greenz President, CEO and Founder of the Greenz concept over eight years ago. “From the beginning, we’ve been dedicated to creating a positive experience for our Dallas customers, our employees and our franchise partners. Now we’re excited to continue to grow Greenz Salads in the Greater Houston area with Taylor’s leadership.”
The new Greenz Houston franchise is slated to open in the next 6-9 months with the location still under wraps. SRS Real Estate is leading site selection and negotiation. Frost Bank facilitated the small-business loan process.
“I’m thrilled to be able to bring Greenz to the Houston market and to provide organic, gluten-free, healthy food choices to my community,” says Taylor. “With so many Americans struggling to make healthy choices, being able to grab lunch or dinner where essentially everything on the menu is a good choice is a no-brainer. That’s why we’re bringing Greenz to Houston.”
Founded in Dallas in 2004, Greenz has since grown to four locations, receiving rave reviews and accolades for its fresh salad culinary creations. With more than 16 years of experience as a marketer and entrepreneur, Caldwell has developed a unique fast-casual concept featuring a variety of chef-inspired, mouth-watering salad creations typically found in fine-dining restaurants. The menu also includes the freshest salad ingredients available, along with wraps, sandwiches, and soups.
Greenz creates unique, innovative salads using the freshest ingredients combined in the most distinctive ways to please everyone from the devout vegetarian to the diehard meat-eater. Greenz also serves sandwiches, soups and wraps. And for those with special diets, Greenz provides the info needed to make smart and delicious options!
