Saladworks to open first international store
Philadelphia, December 15, 2011
Saladworks, the first and largest fresh-salad franchise in the US is going global, opening its first international stores in Singapore.
A household name in the Philadelphia region for the last 25 years, Saladworks grew steadily along the East Coast.
Now, with 100 locations in 12 states, Saladworks has franchise agreements signed for five new US markets, including Louisiana, Washington, South Carolina, Texas and Washington DC.
The company is on track to open more than 20 new locations in 2012, a statement from the franchise said.
The agreement with Singapore outlines a 15-store development with the first restaurant to be opened in 2012 and two more in 2013.
“We were the first to introduce the fresh-salad franchise concept to the US market and have been perfecting our brand for a quarter century,” said John Scardapane, CEO of Saladworks.
Singapore was strategically chosen as the first of several international endeavors, the statement said.
Saladworks plans to replicate its US success internationally. Currently discussing expansion plans in both the UK and Middle East, it looks forward to serving “fanatic’ly fresh fare” to consumers across the globe. – TradeArabia News Service
