Tossed, Saladworks and Freshii plan to open at least 40 stores in O.C. Saladworks debuts Friday in Costa Mesa. The new restaurant (at 488 E. 17th Street) will discount salads to entice customers Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Salads, which range in price from $7.99 and $8.49, will be $5 over the three-day grand opening weekend.
Saladworks is based in Pennsylvania and began in 1986. It plans to open 14 stores in Orange County. The store opens at 10 a.m.
Stephan Tarakji, a Freshii franchisee, said he plans to open his first Orange County location in July. Address: 1320 Bison Ave., Newport Beach. Tossed representatives are also expected to announce new Orange County locations soon.
All three concepts offer custom-made salads in a Chipotle-style assembly line format.
