West Conshohocken’s Saladworks makes move to expand with ghost kitchens

West Conshohocken-based Saladworks, an international fast-casual salad brand, has announced an agreement with Ghost Kitchen Brands that will double its footprint across the United States and Canada. Through this agreement, Saladworks will add 60 non-traditional locations to the United States and 30 to Canada by the end of 2021. Many of these new locations will be within Walmart stores offering some seating, and all locations included in the deal will offer carry-out and third-party delivery.

“Saladworks is a perfect strategic partner for Ghost Kitchen Brands as we continue to grow and reinvent the restaurant industry with our unique restaurant concept,” said George Kottas, founder and CEO of Ghost Kitchen Brands. “We are excited to include Saladworks’ range of healthy and flavorful options to our customers allowing customizations and combinations with other brands, all in the convenience of one order.”

“We are very excited to have Saladworks included in this growth vertical to bring our healthy, fresh concept to millions of new guests across North America,” said Eric Lavinder, Chief Development Officer for WOWorks. “Ghost kitchens have already proven to be an economical and highly successful expansion tactic for us, and this new deal with Ghost Kitchen Brands will allow us to continue solidifying Saladworks as the leading fast-casual salad brand.”
