Yes, everyone knows that eating a salad is healthy but paying $8.29 for something that can be easily made at home seems a bit overkill. Yet, SaladWorks, as a company, has flourished.
Saladworks was founded in 1986 by John Scardapane, the company’s current CEO. The first Saladworks opened in the Cherry Hill Mall in Southern New Jersey, the success of which inspired the opening of 12 additional restaurant locations in New Jersey and Pennsylvania in subsequent years.
Saladworks saw significant growth after it began franchising in 2001, and by 2007 it had 88 locations in eight states, including Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Florida, and Illinois. Today, the franchise operates 100 restaurant locations in 11 states and has announced plans to expand into new US markets in 2010.
-Wikipedia.orgI'm always interested in learning more about a company's business model and understanding why one company is more successful than another. Here, Saladworks' unique business model takes advantage of American's desire to lead healthy lifestyles by eating wholesome and nutritious meals by creating signature salads that would allow Americans to eat healthier.
I think if I were to ever open a franchise, I would want my own SaladWorks!
