Saladworks, announced an agreement with a multi-unit developer for six locations in Bergen County, NJ. The agreement plans for one store to open per year for the first four years and two stores for the fifth year. The first store of this new agreement is slated to open later this year.
New franchisee for the Bergen County, NJ agreement, Bob Gallo of Ridgewood, NJ currently works in real estate development and construction. Looking for an entrepreneurial venture and self-employment, Gallo turned an eye to Saladworks.
“Saladworks was the most attractive franchise to me because of the support they offer to new and existing franchisees,” Gallo said. “I wanted to help develop the North Jersey market and becoming a part of this cooperative and energetic team is helping me do so.”
With the addition of these six stores over the next five years, Saladworks will have over 40 locations in its home state of New Jersey. With the southern part of the state nearly saturated, the franchise will continue its focus on expanding the densely populated Northern New Jersey market to better serve its guests.
“Bob Gallo is a welcome addition to our multi-unit franchisees, as well as to the Northern New Jersey market,” said Founder/CEO John Scardapane. “The majority of Saladworks franchisees are multi-unit operators, which is a testament to their loyalty to the brand and the scalability of Saladworks.”
