The Saladworks concept was developed in 1986 when the first store opened in Cherry Hill Mall, Cherry Hill, NJ with the idea of providing fresh, made-to-order, entrée-sized salads as an alternative food offering for consumers on the go. Saladworks provided a meal that was healthy, quickly accessible and delicious.

Saladworks continually won over new fans with its fresh take on salads. The new hot concept meant an end to the days of chemical-coated tomatoes and brown-tinged lettuce. Salads were made to order, chopped on-location and assembled right in front of your eyes. Appetizing, imaginative salad offerings –served in substantial portions– proved to be a winning formula that took salads from a side dish to the center of the plate.
