“Curtis and Jordan are great examples of what strong multi-unit franchisees are able to accomplish in our 100+ unit system. When our existing franchisees are reinvesting in the brand, we know there is something special here, and we are actively looking to partner with similar experienced franchisees," says Roddy.

Growing through franchising to meet the rapidly increasing demand for healthier meal options, Saladworks is on pace to double in size, with 200 locations planned to open by the end of 2020.
