Saladworks Tosses Up New Location in Pennsylvania

Saladworks, the nation’s first and largest fresh-salad franchise concept, is proud to announce an agreement to develop, Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. 

The franchisees, husband-and-wife team Mark and Ebony Satterfield, have held several successful business ventures and are looking forward to opening their first Saladworks franchise.

Both born in New York, Mark and Ebony now live in East Stroudsburg. A former truck driver and a financial services representative, respectively, the couple chose Saladworks in part because it fit well with their healthy lifestyle.

“We knew we wanted to open a franchise we could believe in,” Mark Satterfield says. “Saladworks offered products that we would eat ourselves.”

When choosing a franchise, the Satterfields did extensive research on numerous companies. They focused on the company’s history and what support is offered after you sign an agreement. They also spoke to numerous franchisees.

“Saladworks was the most organized; they really have their act together of all the franchises we reviewed,” Mark Satterfield says. “They’ve been building a successful brand for the last 25 years and they have a lot of experience with franchise support.

“This isn’t just a few guys who can run a successful restaurant themselves; this is an extensive staff with a wealth of knowledge and experience, and that’s important for ongoing support.”

This location will mark Saladworks’ first Poconos store. Stroudsburg is the perfect place to expand the Saladworks concept, according to Chairman/CEO, John Scardapane.

“We look forward to feeding the local appetite with the same healthy, diverse, exceptional menu and outstanding service that makes our brand successful in other markets around the country,” Scardapane says.
