Leading Salad Restaurant Franchise to Give Away More Than 6,000 Free Salads
Saladworks, the nation’s first and largest fresh-tossed salad franchise, is celebrating its 30th anniversary by giving back to customers. The brand is launching a series of in-store promotions and online contests that will ultimately put its top quality product front and center—Saladworks is honoring its milestone anniversary by giving away more than 6,000 free salads.
On September 30, 2016, the brand is offering free salads to the first 30 fans to arrive at each one of Saladworks’ 97 locations across the country. The brand is also running a “golden ticket-style” in-store contest from September 19 through October 16, where customers who find a sticker on the bottom of their salad bowl will receive a special prize. Five hundred people will win a free beverage, 15 people will receive one free salad and 15 people will walk away with free salads for a full year.
Customers can also join in on Saladworks’ 30th anniversary celebration online – 30yearsoffresh.com is offering chances to win fresh prizes during the same time frame. Five hundred people will win a free beverage, 15 people will receive one free salad and 15 people will win free salads for a full year. One lucky winner will also win 30 years of free delicious and nutritious premium Saladworks salads through the online entry form.
Saladworks’ Rewards Members represent some of the Brand’s most loyal customers. To celebrate with them, Platinum Rewards members will receive $2 off their salads, while all gold members will receive a free drink during the promotion period. Any Rewards member who purchases a salad on September 30th will also receive 30 extra bonus points.
“We viewed the 30th Anniversary as the perfect time to say ‘thank you’ to all of our loyal customers,” Saladworks CEO Patrick Sugrue said. “What better way to celebrate than to give back to the local communities that we call home and to recognize our outstanding fans who frequent our stores and love our products.”
2016 has been a whirlwind year with multiple brand upgrades implemented under Sugrue, who joined the team in March. With a revamped menu, updated logo and a focus on technology in the newly unveiled store design, the Saladworks team is charging full speed ahead to ensure that the next 30 years are even greater than the last.
Demonstrating the company’s newfound momentum, year-to-date same-stores sales have increased by 8.5 percent. With all of the promising changes enhancing the concept, there is also a renewed faith in the brand among its existing franchisees. In fact, the first two stores opening in 2017 will be opened by existing franchisees excited by the company’s new direction.
“Saladworks truly was the pioneer in the fresh-tossed salad category, and the company is continuing to reinvent itself to change with the times and consumer needs,” Sugrue said. “We will continue to be a leader and innovator in the space, and this anniversary year has been a great rebirth for the company. I’m looking forward to seeing what the next 30 years will bring to the brand—I know Saladworks will be bigger and better than ever.”
