Saladworks Unveils New Restaurant Design Buildout in Charlotte

2020-09-16T10:04:43-04:00September 16th, 2020|Tags: , , , |

Fast-Casual Salad Concept Incorporates New Elements to Save Franchisees Buildout Costs.

WEST CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. — Saladworks, the nation’s leading fast-casual create-your-own salad concept, unveiled its newly designed restaurant buildout first at the new Charlotte restaurant on September 9, to be followed by all new restaurant openings thereafter.

“In addition to aesthetically-pleasing form elements like Instagram Walls and Manifest Walls, we’re redesigning for function too, such as the mechanically-fastened floor specifications, mounted digital menu boards and total restaurant layout reconfiguration,” said Mark Mears, Chief Marketing Officer of Saladworks. “While strategically saving buildout costs in the process, we’re honing into the Saladworks experience as part of our new ‘BE Original’ positioning, helping guests fulfill their passion and live their best lives.”

Saladworks updated restaurant design treatments in its new Charlotte location illustrates the healthy, active lifestyles of guests who’ve come to love the brand – highlighting their originality via visually engaging elements. One example is a “WOW” Wall where a guest can stand in front of this image and share their photo on Instagram. Also, a Saladworks Manifesto is placed prominently to signify the relevance of its new BE Original brand positioning celebrating the uniqueness and originality of every guest.

In terms of buildout, Charlotte is the first to roll out strategically chosen cost-saving structure and design elements. These include converting flooring into clear-coated concrete, which will save roughly $10,000 per restaurant, mounted digital menu boards to illuminate the many options and save roughly $1,300 per restaurant, as well as chair rail, restroom hallway, ladder and paint changes – all to wow customers and optimize refreshing senses.

First in Charlotte and for every new location moving forward, Saladworks has value engineered its buildout to save each restaurant roughly $60,000$80,000 without changing the total footprint. Each restaurant will have an average of six more seats, furthering its impressive sales-to-buildout ratio of more than 2:1, via reducing the back of house and serving lines. This improving ratio and reduced buildout cost shortens the payback period for franchisees.

“The cost to buildout has significantly decreased since I made it a focus area two years ago with our restaurants, and it’s saving everyone money, including our franchisees most of all,” said Eric Lavinder, VP of Development for Saladworks. “We’re not cutting corners in the process either. We’re just being more efficient and selective with equipment, lights, flooring and the like to actually enhance aesthetics and guests’ experience too. All the small buildout pieces we’re adjusting, down to a rail selection, add up to big savings for our franchise owners.”

Saladworks, which has been in business for more than 30 years, has always placed a focus on guest originality through its healthy and fresh ingredients and create-your-own options. Ranked number 22 among this year’s Top 100 Fast Casual Movers and Shakers, the brand is currently experiencing impressive growth due to a rise in health-conscious consumer behaviors and its unique avenues for expansion.

Dine At Saladworks This Fall And Help End Childhood Hunger

2020-08-31T18:57:38-04:00August 31st, 2020|Tags: , , , |

Funds raised support No Kid Hungry to help ensure all kids get the healthy meals they need.

WEST CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. — Kids need textbooks, pencils and paper. But there’s one school supply they absolutely can’t do without: food. It helps them learn, focus and thrive. But because of the coronavirus, 1 in 4 kids could face hunger this year. When you dine with Saladworks this season, you can help give hungry kids the meals they need.

Beginning on August 31 and running through October 15, Saladworks is offering guests four ways to ‘Join The Team’ and help end childhood hunger by supporting No Kid Hungry through the brand’s Million Meals Challenge. Saladworks’ goal is to raise $100,000* for No Kid Hungry, which can provide up to one million meals for kids in need.**

The first way guests can team up with Saladworks is by making a donation to No Kid Hungry after purchasing their meal, either in person at a Saladworks restaurant or via online ordering. For every $1 donation made by a guest, they will receive an “I Joined the Team” sticker and an opportunity to sign a “carrot” image symbolizing their personal commitment to the cause.  Each individually signed guest “carrot” will be posted on a wall next to the restaurant’s “carrot tracker” – signifying the progress made each week of the 6-week Million Meals Challenge. To sweeten the deal, every guest who donates $5 will receive the above, plus a bounce back coupon for a free entree with purchase of any beverage on a future order through October 31.

The second way a guest can ‘Join the Team’ is by purchasing an item from Saladworks new Kids Works menu being introduced systemwide in tandem with its partnership with No Kid Hungry. The Kids Works menu features an array of fresh, nutritious and flavorful items kids love – including an innovative Build Your Own Meal option that allows kids to select items from five different categories to customize a meal as ‘original’ as they are. For every Kids Works menu item sold, Saladworks will support the concept of “Kids Fueling Kids” by donating $.10 to No Kid Hungry. Additionally, every Tuesday night throughout the promotion, Saladworks is allowing kids to eat free with the purchase of an adult entrée.

The third way a guest can ‘Join the Team’ in support of No Kid Hungry is through Saladworks Catering. For each catering order placed via saladworks.com, guests will have the option to donate $5, $10 or $25 to No Kid Hungry.

Finally, the fourth way anyone can ‘Join the Team’ is by making a donation via a special Saladworks link to the No Kid Hungry fundraising section of its website at: Saladworks.com/NoKidHungryDonate. The brand is leveraging the social media networks of its corporate employees, franchise partners, team members, business partners and the general public to reach out to as many people as possible who may feel compelled to join Saladworks in support of No Kid Hungry.

Saladworks Taps into Mobile Ecosystems for Growth through Partnership with REEF Technology

2020-05-19T11:31:52-04:00May 19th, 2020|Tags: , , , |

Deal Brings Fast-Casual Salad Concept to 15 REEF Hubs in 10 Cities across the United States.

WEST CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. — Saladworks, the nation’s leading fast-casual create-your-own salad concept, announced today it has launched a partnership with REEF Technology, a Miami-based company that transforms parking lots and facilities into mobile ecosystems that seamlessly integrate a broad range of businesses. The partnership expands Saladworks’ footprint into 17 REEF hubs throughout 10 cities across the U.S., including Miami, Atlanta, Houston, Austin, Dallas, Chicago, New York, Nashville, San Francisco and Los Angeles, and will primarily debut as ghost kitchens supported by third-party delivery companies nationwide. The first one opened in Philadelphia yesterday, with Miami to follow next week, and the rest throughout June.

While some of its REEF locations allow for walk-up orders, Saladworks will primarily use these mobile ecosystems as a means to accommodate a larger number and wider area of delivery orders. The centralized locations and ability to prepare food on-site promote the delivery of meals as efficiently and freshly as possible. Each site offers a menu of featured items, including Saladworks’ create-your-own and signature salads, wraps and grain bowls.

“We strive to be original in everything we do, and that originality is exemplified by exciting, strategic projects like this partnership with REEF Technology,” said Kelly Roddy, CEO of Saladworks. “Among our many creative channels of growth, these mobile ecosystems enable us to share our healthy, sustainable and incredible brand with guests we might not have otherwise reached.”

Saladworks, which has been in business for more than 30 years, has always placed a focus on guest originality through its healthy and fresh ingredients and create-your-own options. Ranked number 22 among this year’s Top 100 Fast Casual Movers and Shakers, the brand is currently experiencing impressive growth due to a rise in health-conscious consumer behaviors and its unique avenues for expansion, such as ghost kitchens, stores within stores, and locations across the likes of universities and military bases. By the end of 2020, Saladworks plans to open 30 new restaurants and have 50 more in development.

“In this age of social distancing, consumers are leaning on delivery and minimal-contact options now more than ever,” said Roddy. “These mobile ecosystems allow us to meet those needs and scale the Saladworks concept quickly, efficiently and for a fraction of the cost, which is a win-win for everybody.”

Saladworks Kicks Off National Salad Month with Interactive Social Campaign

2020-05-12T13:37:49-04:00May 12th, 2020|Tags: , , , |

Saladworks Encourages Guests to Participate in Wellness Routines and Focus on “You” Through “You Are A-May-Zing 30-Day Challenge”.

WEST CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. — With stay-at-home orders extended in many states, people are continuing to find new ways to stay active, healthy and sane while in quarantine. Saladworks, the nation’s leading fast-casual create-your-own salad franchise, created a 30-day wellness challenge to celebrate National Salad Month throughout May. While many are still quarantined at home, the month of May is the perfect time to focus on one’s well-being, especially with summer around the corner. Additionally, this social campaign allows Saladworks to interact with its guests during a time when social distancing is of utmost importance.

All month guests can go on to Saladworks social media pages, i.e. Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, to access the daily challenges. Each week Saladworks posts the weekly challenge for participants to do each day. Over the four weeks, there will be four different wellness themes that each challenge falls under – Create & Relate; Restore & Explore; Nature & Nurture; Nourish & Nutrition. Social media fans can participate in the day’s challenge directly with Saladworks or post it to their own social media tagging the brand for a chance to win free salads, rewards points and other prizes.

“In addition to our ‘Fives for Lives’ fundraising campaign which brings healthy, nutritious and flavorful meals to our local heroes battling COVID-19 on the front lines of this pandemic, we also wanted to create a way to engage with our guests and bring a smile to everyone’s face during such a difficult and uncertain time,” said Mark Mears, Chief Marketing Officer of Saladworks. “The ‘You Are A-May-Zing 30-Day Challenge’ has brought many together to celebrate National Salad Month in such a fun, original and interactive way, while also emphasizing ways to stay healthy, fit and well from live Instagram workouts and fitness tips to cooking demos for at-home salads.”

The premise of the “You Are A-May-Zing 30-Day Challenge” interactive social campaign is to celebrate and gamify National Salad Month and encourage guests to complete these challenges each day of the week around their unique “original” routines. With boredom becoming more rampant as the pandemic prolongs, these daily challenges add a little bit of fun and flavor to people’s days.

“We really want people to use this month to focus on themselves in all aspects of their lives,” said Mears. “These challenges were designed specifically to fortify people’s bodies, build up immune systems, stimulate minds and bring the family closer together during a time when all of those aspects are so important.  By helping to ‘fuel the originality’ of our guests, we can all emerge from this pandemic even better than before.”

Along with the “You Are A-May-Zing 30-Day Challenge” campaign, Saladworks is doing its part to serve guests through the pandemic by offering free delivery on orders placed through its website as well as specific delivery specials via its partners at Door Dash, GrubHub and Uber Eats. In all cases, each Saladworks meal will be offered in tamper-resistant packaging with curbside service available for the health and safety of its guests.

Saladworks, which has been in business for more than 30 years, has always placed a focus on guest originality through its array of over 60 fresh, flavorful and healthy ingredients.  In addition to its Signature recipes, Saladworks offers create-your-own options, including salads, wraps, grain bowls and more.

Saladworks Donates Over 1,145 Meals to Healthcare Workers since Launch of ‘Fives for Lives’ Fundraising Campaign with a Goal of 5,000 Meals

2020-05-07T11:24:20-04:00May 7th, 2020|Tags: , , , |

National Salad Franchise Doubles Down on Efforts Heading into National Nurses Week.

WEST CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. — Since the outbreak of the coronavirus, restaurants have been doing everything they can to keep serving their guests, but for Saladworks, the nation’s leading fast-casual salad franchise, it’s also about lifting up those who serve and protect the originality of its communities. For the past several weeks, the popular salad brand has exemplified this with more than $5,725 raised and 1,145 meals donated to hospitals and first responders through its charitable Fives for Lives campaign. With National Nurses Week beginning May 6, Saladworks is doubling down on its efforts to achieve its goal of raising $25,000 in donations – or 5,000 meals — as many states have yet to hit their peak number of COVID-19 cases.

Fives for Lives gives guests the option to contribute $5 through their local Saladworks – or via www.fivesforlives.com –on behalf of healthcare workers who are on the front lines of this pandemic. Each $5 contribution is matched with a free meal provided to a local hospital from Saladworks. The more ‘fives’ someone contributes, the more meals donated, which consist of one of Saladworks’ original Signature Salads, including the popular Cobb Salad, Farmhouse Salad, Sophie’s Salad, Mediterranean Salad and Bently Salad among other favorites. When possible, Saladworks franchise owners, company operators and team members also collect signatures with well wishes from the guests who contribute “fives” to give every Signature salad donated a personal touch.

“The coronavirus has impacted us all in various ways – none more so than those in the healthcare community who are fighting this pandemic on the front lines every single day,” said Kelly Roddy, Saladworks CEO. “Given that many of our franchisees and team members have family members who are nurses, we are especially grateful for their service to help keep our communities safe and healthy during this difficult, uncertain time. At Saladworks, our goal is to help nourish their minds, bodies and spirits as we celebrate all the nurses throughout this week and beyond.”

Every Friday, participating Saladworks restaurants have been tracking the number of contributions made throughout the week, then preparing and delivering a commensurate number of Saladworks meals to a local healthcare partner serving its community. Some of the hospitals that have received generous donations include Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, PA, Jefferson Hospital in Cherry Hill, NJ and Chesapeake Regional Medical Center in Chesapeake, VA among many others.

“There is nothing more rewarding than the feeling that comes with giving back to your community,” said Ike Carabases, co-owner of Saladworks in Cherry Hill, NJ. “Each Friday when my staff and I drop off the donations at Jefferson Hospital in Cherry Hill, the energy in the room immediately flips from gloom to joy. Healthcare workers and first responders are sacrificing so much right now that every little act of kindness we can do for them makes a difference.”

Saladworks Launches ‘Fives for Lives’ Campaign to Honor Local Heroes and Hospitals

2020-04-16T12:44:35-04:00April 16th, 2020|Tags: , , , |

Guests Can Donate to Help Saladworks Provide Meals to Nourish Healthcare Workers and First Responders on Front Lines of COVID-19 Pandemic.

WEST CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. — As the world continues its battle against coronavirus, Saladworks, the nation’s leading fast-casual create-your-own salad franchise, is putting local heroes first with the launch of Fives for Lives. Through this charitable campaign, guests will have the option to contribute $5 through their local Saladworks on behalf of healthcare workers who are on the front lines of this pandemic. Each $5 contribution a guest makes will be matched with a free meal donated to the local hospital from Saladworks.

The more ‘fives’ a guest contributes, the more meals Saladworks will serve to those in our community who serve us so well. All meals donated will consist of one of Saladworks’ original Signature Salads, including the popular Cobb Salad, Farmhouse Salad, Sophie’s Salad, Mediterranean Salad and Bently Salad among other favorites.

“Doctors, nurses and other first responders are sacrificing their health daily and putting in long hours to help their communities beat this pandemic, sometimes to the extent that they don’t have time to eat a meal,” said Kelly Roddy, CEO of Saladworks. “Fives for Lives is a chance for Saladworks and our guests to give back to these local heroes and keep them healthy. We want to help the first responders that protect our originality while giving our guests an opportunity to do the same.”

Donations can be made upon call-in and pick-up orders as well as through Saladworks online ordering by selecting the menu item “Fives for Lives – Donation” before checking out. Every week, participating Saladworks restaurants will track the number of donations made throughout the week, then donate the monetary amount to a local partner as well as coordinate the delivery of meals equal in value to the donations made.

The idea for Fives for Lives was started by Saladworks franchisees, who recognized the power of the restaurant brand to help during the pandemic. This includes Cheri BonVardo, a Saladworks franchisee in Clementon, NJ who started her own charitable campaign in her local community by providing free meals to all first responders around her restaurant. After seeing the impact it made in the area, the effort is now being carried out throughout a majority of the franchise system.

“First responders make up a great deal of our guests and have always been a bright spot in our Saladworks community,” said BonVardo. “When this pandemic struck, providing them with free meals for their service to our city and loyalty to our business felt like the right thing to do.”

Along with the Fives for Lives campaign, Saladworks is doing its part to serve guests through the pandemic by offering free delivery on orders placed through its website as well as specific delivery specials via its partners at Door Dash, GrubHub and Uber Eats.

Saladworks Rolls Out Special Gift Card Offer to Support Guests in Need During Coronavirus Outbreak, Encourages ‘Pay it Forward’

New Promotions and Free Delivery Make Healthy and Fresh Meals Easy and Affordable.

WEST CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa. — In an effort to continue serving guests during this unprecedented time of social distancing, Saladworks, the nation’s leading fast-casual create-your-own salad franchise, has launched a timely, relevant promotion for all of its guests as well as an exclusive bonus offer for members of its Saladworks Rewards program. These deals emphasize the brand’s focus on take-away, online ordering and delivery orders to make fresh and healthy eating as simple as possible for guests – regardless of personal health, medical or dietary considerations — as they adhere to state and/or local health regulations.

Through Sunday, all guests will receive a $5 gift card with a purchase of $20 or more when they order directly with Saladworks for take-away or delivery via online ordering, telephone or, where permitted, in restaurant. The gift card can be used by the guest on a future order, or better yet, Saladworks is encouraging them to give it to someone in need, which has become an unfortunate reality for many Americans in light of the recent COVID-19 public health outbreak.

“The heart of the Saladworks brand is quite simply our people — including our franchisees and team members as well as our valued guests and the communities we serve,” said Kelly Roddy, CEO of Saladworks. “During this unprecedented time of change and uncertainty, we know there are many people who need help securing fresh, flavorful and healthy food to nourish their bodies, minds and spirits. So, we’re encouraging all those who are able to enjoy a Saladworks meal with their family or friends to ‘pay it forward’ by giving the $5 Gift Card reward to someone in need.  We are all in this fight together and we will all get through it together if we allow the very best in all of us to shine through.”

Along with this limited-time deal for all guests, Saladworks Rewards members will receive an extra bonus.  Members who purchase four entrée salads throughout the month of March can receive their next entrée salad for free. It is free to sign up for the rewards program through the company’s website or mobile app.

Saladworks is also offering free delivery on orders placed through its website for its restaurants who offer delivery as well as specific delivery specials via its partners at Door Dash, GrubHub and Uber Eats.  In all cases, each Saladworks meal will be offered in tamper-resistant packaging with curbside service available for the health and safety of its guests.
