Saladworks - Franchise Information
Saladworks, the nation’s leading entrée salad destination, serves people nature’s best, one salad at a time.

Today, consumers can visit Saladworks in nearly 100 different locations in thirteen states and two countries. At Saladworks, all salads are made to order, one at a time, from a wide variety of the freshest vegetables, fruits, proteins and delicious dressings. Saladworks guests can create their own salad, or enjoy one of many signature and seasonal salads, together with a selection of freshly-made sandwiches and soups.
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.

“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.” Nish Patel, Multi-Unit Operator, 4 Years with Saladworks
“Saladworks provided the brand and business structure for us to own great restaurants. The Home Office team really gives us the opportunity to be heard. They value our insights as owner-operators who are in stores every day. They take our comments into consideration for everything from advertising to menu changes.” Lee and Tara Smith, Multi-Unit Operators, 10 Years with Saladworks
“We don’t have a customer base like most restaurants. We have a fan base. I see customers 3 or 4 times a week! They are incredibly loyal to the brand and make Saladworks a regular part of their schedule. It’s tremendous that what we do here creates loyal, lifelong customers.” Vince Rosetti, Multi-Unit Operator, 11 Years with Saladworks
“With people’s increased awareness of the food they’re consuming and our commitment to serving only the best and freshest ingredients, we’re in a perfect position for expansion. It’s a really exciting time to be a part of the Saladworks team. The brand as a whole has so much growth potential.” Curtis High , Multi-Unit Operator, 10 Years with Saladworks
