Saladworks, the nation’s first and largest fresh salad franchise concept, is proud to announce its first multi-unit development agreement in Arizona. 

New franchisee James Riggs of Scottsdale, Arizona, has been a fanatical fan of Saladworks for 20 years. Previously a resident of New Jersey, he was a frequent customer of the Cherry Hill location.

Though he is currently a real estate developer, when James decided to diversify his business ventures, the idea of bringing Saladworks to Arizona was an exciting prospect for him.

“Saladworks is a healthy eating option that is easily accessible because it’s fast casual,” Riggs says. “It is exactly the type of concept the people are looking for here. I was impressed with the food from the very beginning as a customer, and continued to be impressed by the concept and system as a whole.”

With the first store scheduled to open in late 2012, Maricopa County is the focus for initial site selection. By the end of 2016, five Saladworks locations will call Arizona home. 

“We can’t wait to bring Saladworks to the Southwest,” says Chairman/CEO, John Scardapane. “James Riggs is the kind of fanatical franchisee that we are thrilled to have helping us continue our Westward expansion.”
