BRIX Holdings LLC, a multi-concept franchising company, announced the additions of Souper Salad and Greenz to its growing roster of franchise chains. With a portfolio of brands positioned to benefit from healthier dining trends, these two salad concepts continue to expand BRIX investments in concepts that offer lighter fare and strong potential for growth.
When Marley Hodgson and Dan Long opened their first Mad Greens eatery in December 2004, terms like gluten-free, lactose intolerance, and vegan were not foremost in their entrepreneurial minds. These days, however, the 11-unit, Denver-based salad chain finds itself regularly contemplating and catering to such dietary restrictions.
“While we were at first singularly focused on producing a healthy product that tasted good, we’ve extended that process with a greater focus on nutrition and the most common dietary restrictions our customers have,” Hodgson says.
Greenz Franchise Systems announces today an agreement with Kimberly Taylor to open Greenz Salads’ third franchise eatery and the company’s first outside Dallas. Additionally, Taylor will be the first female franchise owner in the company.
Greenz, salads for z’ adventurous, has added two important designations to its portfolio: national certification as a Women’s Owned Business by Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) and approval by the Small Business Administration for the Franchise Registry.
Both of these special recognitions are further examples of Greenz commitment to providing a strong fast-casual business platform for its existing and potential franchisees.
