Saladworks to Expand Presence in Ohio with New Locations
Salad Brand Looks to Develop More Franchise Restaurants in State
August 06, 2021 // Franchising.com // CINCINNATI - Saladworks, a create-your-own salad destination, is pushing its next wave of growth and expansion. The fast-casual entrée salad franchise is opening four more local Kroger stores in the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area this summer. Company leaders say the latest growth drive within the state has been strategically designed to meet the demand for healthy, customizable fast-casual meals.
The four new Kroger Saladworks stores opening during the summer months include:
- 11390 Montgomery Road, Cincinnati, OH (now open)
- 7580 Beechmont Ave, Cincinnati, OH (now open)
- 3636 Springdale Road, Cincinnati, OH (now open)
- 130 Pavilion Parkway, Newport, KY (coming soon)
These new Ohio restaurants will add on to the two existing Saladworks locations in Columbus and another Kroger store in Cincinnati.
Saladworks' focus on menu items which are fresh and do not require cooking, grills, hoods, and skilled kitchen staff, proves to be a big win with franchisees.
"We are excited to grow our Saladworks brand in Ohio in these high-traffic stores and believe it will lay the foundation for future growth throughout the state," said Eric Lavinder, Chief Development Officer for WOWorks, parent company of Saladworks.
The move to open restaurants within grocery chains and other non-traditional venues began in early 2019, when Saladworks opened its first in-store location in Philadelphia. Much like their stand-alone locations across the country, these non-traditional restaurant locations focus on customization through their array of over 60 fresh, flavorful and nutritious ingredients.
The in-store restaurants provide guests a variety of healthy menu items to grab while shopping, including customizable salads, wraps, grain bowls, soups and more. To date, Saladworks has restaurants in 10 grocery stores in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio, and New York, with additional locations projected to open in 2021 and 2022.
These new locations will also participate in Saladworks' Local Heroes program. Police officers, firefighters, first responders, teachers, doctors and other workers who keep communities safe can sign up for Saladworks Rewards and receive 20 bonus points on every purchase along with special offers on relevant appreciation days and holidays.
