Saladworks to Open in Schaumburg, Illinois

Saladworks, the nation’s first and largest fresh-tossed salad franchise concept, is opening its first Saladworks in Schaumburg, in the Streets of Woodfield Shopping Center, 601 N. Martingale Road, Schaumburg, IL.

Saladworks celebrates the opening of its Schaumburg, IL location by offering $5 salads to all customers on both the 21st and 22nd of May. In addition, there will be a grand opening raffle, with prizes such as a catered lunch or dinner for 10 and 20 of your friends, family or co-workers, and a grand prize of an iPad 3.

The Schaumburg Saladworks is owned and operated by David Wojcik who spent 30 years in the textile business, first on the buying end, then as a Regional and National Accounts Sales Manager, working with various national retail giants. When his company began downsizing, he knew it was time for a new career. As he planned for his future, the successful track record and established systems franchising offers, appealed to Dave. He looked at numerous brands before deciding to sign on with Saladworks. “I love the concept, there’s nothing like it in the Mid-West. Saladworks provides me with a great opportunity to bring a healthy and fresh concept to the market,” said Wojcik.

Schaumburg Saladworks will be the second in the state of Illinois. Chicago O’Hare Airport currently boasts one of the most successful Saladworks in the franchise’s system. “We’ve had great success on both the East and West Coast and are looking forward to duplicating that success in the Mid-West,” said chairman and CEO John Scardapane. “For years, customers have been writing to us and pleading for Saladworks’ freshness in this area and we look forward to creating new fans of our brand. Saladworks is living true to its title of America’s Best Salads and is prepared to deliver the ultimate in health-conscious dining to the residents of Schaumburg.”

A fusion of fanatic’ly fresh and healthy menu items along with passionate customer service define the experience each guest receives at every Saladworks location. Saladworks offers all fans the opportunity to create their own fresh salad, which is then expertly prepared in front of them by a Saladworks team member. They can also choose from one of 12 Signature Salads. All of Saladworks’ offerings are chopped fresh daily in every location across the county. Saladworks also offers proprietary soups, fresh wraps, hot Panini sandwiches and Fusion sandwiches.
