Saladworks, the nation’s first and largest fresh-tossed salad franchise concept, is proud to announce its first multi-unit agreements in 2011 with two new franchisees, opening a combined four locations, in Fairfax and Loudoun Counties and Virginia Beach, VA. The first location for both territories is slated to open in early 2012.
New franchisee for Fairfax and Loudoun Counties, Mike Lord, spent 25 years in engineering before deciding it was time to go into business for himself. Lord, of Sterling, VA, recalled visiting a Saladworks in New Jersey years before.
“I remember thinking, ‘this is great! Why don’t they have this concept in Northern Virginia where I live?’” Lord said. “When I was finally ready to make a career change, I looked into franchising and did a lot of due diligence on several concepts. I quickly found myself gravitating toward Saladworks. I knew I could be successful because I truly believe in the product and the system.”
