Last week, fast-casual entree salad restaurant brand Saladworks opened its first Nevada location at 5150 Mae Anne Ave. in Reno. According to a press release from the Conshohocken, Pennsylvania-based company, the local franchise opened March 17 and is owned by father and son duo John and Joel Anderson, longtime Nevada residents. The main food item at Saladworks, as you would imagine, is salad; the restaurants offer 12 chef-driven signatures salads, in addition to create-your-own options through an array of over 60 ingredients. The restaurant also offers wraps, grain bowls, soups and other options. According to the press release, the elder Anderson is no stranger to business ownership; he’s owned local company John Anderson Construction for 30 years, which has a strong emphasis in construction of quick service restaurants. Meanwhile, Joel Anderson has six years of experience as a general manager in the quick-serve food industry. “What really stood out to me about Saladworks was the variety of ingredients offered to customers, more than 60 ingredients and toppings,” John said in a statement. “We’re providing the Reno community the opportunity to be original with a very healthy meal option. We also love to talk about our paninis and soups as well.” Open for lunch and dinner, the restaurant does catering and also offers online ordering and delivery through major third-party delivery services such as Uber Eats, GrubHub and DoorDash. “The brand is currently experiencing impressive growth due to a rise in health-conscious consumer behaviors and its unique avenues for expansion, such as ghost kitchens, stores within stores, and locations across the likes of universities and military bases,” according to the release.
Founded in 1986 in New Jersey, Saladworks now has more than 100 locations throughout the U.S.
