"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
"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
"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 & 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
