"Having been part of Saladworks for 4 years with multiple locations, I jumped at the chance to redesign my store. On the first day there was a line out the door and it hasn't slowed down yet. I'm seeing explosive growth and couldn't be more thrilled with the new design."

Creating Fresh Every Day

We've been making salads since before they were cool. And now more than ever, we're obsessed with fresh. We believe a salad is only as good as where it comes from. That's why we source the best growers for bigger taste. It's why we chop fresh all day, every day. From our kale to our carrots to our quinoa, our promise is as fresh as it gets. At Saladworks, this is where it all began, over thirty years ago. Making salads for the people. By the people. And we plan on making them for a very long time. Because there's nothing trendy about fresh.
