About

Saladworks, the nation’s leading entrée salad destination, serves people nature’s best, one salad at a time. America’s original fast-casual salad concept, Saladworks first opened its doors in 1986 and launched its first franchised location in 2001. Today, consumers can visit Saladworks in 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.

Healthy - More people are eating healthy to be healthier. That means less meat and more veggies. That’s why nearly half of all Millennial and Gen Z consumers buy 3+ entrée salads per week away from home. Saladworks is on-trend.

Simple - Our concept is asset-light, equipment-light and easy to operate. No fryers and no hood means less mess for you. Just chop, slice and dice to serve the tastiest create-your-own salads around. Saladworks is turn-key.

Accessible - The fast-casual landscape is overbuilt and cluttered with the create-your-own burger, sandwich, pizza, Mexican and smoothie concepts. Landlords are looking for healthy concepts like ours. We have the market, venue, format, and footprint you want. Saladworks is available.

The average net sales for the top quartile is $1,246,619.

It’s tremendous that what we do here creates loyal, lifelong customers.” Vince Rosetti, Multi-Unit Operator, 11 Years with Saladworks

They take our comments into consideration for everything from advertising to menu changes.” Lee & Tara Smith, Multi-Unit Operators, 10 Years with Saladworks

“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
