This Philly-area salad/soup/sandwich chain scored a major franchising coup in 2010, signing 26 agreements for a 136 percent increase in contracts over 2009. The deals authorize 48 new restaurants within three years and will expand the Saladworks brand beyond core service areas in Pennsylvania and New Jersey into nine new markets, including Dallas; Baton Rouge, Fla.; and Orange County, Calif. The menu also grew in 2010 with a new line of panini sandwiches. Additionally, the company launched its “True Nutrition” initiative, reducing the calorie count of signature salads to under 300 and adding new ingredients.
