What’s What: If you’re a healthy food enthusiast looking for a promising business opportunity, slice and dice the opportunity to own a Saladworks franchise. 

Amava Take: Salad is no longer a side dish or appetizer. Salad is big business. With more than 100 locations across the globe, Saladworks delivers the ultimate in health-conscious, fan-driven dining. With its trailblazing leadership and sensational, fresh salads, Saladworks’ future as the nation’s #1 salad franchise is a bright one. Their made to order, chopped on-location, assembled on-the-spot salads are appetizing and imaginative. And popular.

From the Frontlines:

What kinds of people make successful Saladworks owners?

Previous multi-unit operations experience is ideal for candidates pursuing a Saladworks franchise opportunity. However, if a great prospect does not have sufficient restaurant experience, he/she must hire a GM with the required experience. 

Is there organized training for new franchisees?

Yes, Saladworks runs a 4-week intensive training program at their corporate office in Conshohocken, PA, which will help give you some of the tools necessary to get you started on your way to successful restaurant ownership.

What’s a typical initial investment? 

Your initial investment and the costs necessary to begin operating a single Saladworks restaurant could range from $210,607 – $534,084. Actual costs will vary for each restaurant depending on a number of factors, including market conditions and the geographic location of your restaurant, as well as the amount of construction work necessary for the site build out. The initial franchise fee is $35,000 for a single restaurant. Single and multi-unit development is available.

Are there any discounts available for Veterans?

Active duty military and veterans receive 50% off of the initial franchise fee.
