Saladworks has named Jason D. Mattes as its new vice president of franchise development.
Mattes' franchise career started at Netspace, a nationwide provider of DSL and wireless broadband internet. Prior to joining Saladworks, Mattes managed a staff at Cruise Planners, the largest home-based travel agent network.
At Saladworks, Mattes’ main focus will be directing the franchise expansion efforts of the salad franchise.
“Saladworks has spent the last two years gearing up for national expansion in spite of the economy,” said Saladworks’ founder and CEO, John Scardapane. “Bringing Jason on board with his vast experience is a perfect fit for our aggressive growth model and an integral piece in the puzzle of nationwide expansion.”
Mattes joins Saladworks as the franchise concept continues to expand in new markets coast to coast. Saladworks’ entrance into Orange County, Calif., and Knox County, Tenn., are all planned for late 2010 and early 2011.
