Conshohocken-Based Saladworks Begins International Franchise Expansion --  "Saladworks, the first and largest fresh salad franchise in the United States is going global.

"A household name in the Philadelphia region for the last 25 years, salad franchise Saladworks grew steadily along the East Coast. After insurmountable local success, Saladworks has spent the last few years introducing its chopped fresh daily fare to new markets across the country. Now, with 100 locations in 12 states, Saladworks has franchise agreements signed for five new U.S. markets, including Louisiana, Washington, South Carolina, Texas and Washington, D.C. The franchise company is on track to open more than 20 new locations in 2012.

"After years of preparation, strategic business planning and support-staff enhancement, Saladworks is ready to bring made-to-order salads to Singapore. The agreement with Amos Lee of 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 U.S. market and have been perfecting our brand for a quarter century,' said John Scardapane, chairman/CEO of Saladworks.  'We feel that we’re in a solid position for international growth; we’re excited to start that growth within Singapore.'”
