Chop Stop, a California-based chopped salad concept known for its fresh, customizable chopped salads and other health-oriented menu options, announced that it has recently signed 16 new franchise agreements in three states. The deals will result in the first-ever Chop Stop franchises in Texas and Nevada. By the end of 2019, Chop Stop expects to have a total of 23 units open.

“We are highly encouraged by the progress these agreements represent for the Chop Stop brand and franchise,” adds Chop Stop founder and CEO Mark Kulkis. “Chop Stop has a wide and loyal customer base in California and the new franchises represent new areas that will fall in love with the fresh, wholesome and filling chopped salads.”

Among the new locations planned for 2019 is their first unit in the San Antonio, Texas area. This franchise group, experienced operators of a quick-service sandwich chain, has signed a multi-unit restaurant development agreement to open 8 locations in San Antonio, with an option for an additional 8 locations in Austin, over the next several years.

“Our team is looking forward to the expansion in our markets and getting to see this brand grow all around us,” says franchisee, Matthew Weir.

In Southern California, 5 units are currently in construction and are expected to open within the first few months of the new year. Specific locations and opening dates will be announced as the stores come online.

Chop Stop began actively marketing their franchise program at the beginning of 2018, with the goal of having 100 locations open in the next 5 years. Those interested in a low-cost business model with a rapidly-growing franchise may visit or call 818-369-7350 for more information.
