Saladworks to Expand; Multiple Locations Coming to the Boston Area
A Pennsylvania-based restaurant chain that was on shaky ground earlier this year is getting ready to expand--and the expansion includes a number of shops for the Boston area.
The Boston Business Journal is reporting that Saladworks is looking to open as many as a dozen new stores in and around Boston over the next three or four years, with outlets in Burlington and Somerville being a couple of possibilities. Currently, only two shops can be found in the region--one on Tremont Street by Government Center and another at the CambridgeSide Galleria in East Cambridge.
The Saladworks chain filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in February of this year, with the company's problems stemming from what the BBJ calls a "leadership problem" along with a number of lawsuits. The business emerged from bankruptcy in June, with New York-based private investment firm Centre Lane Partners buying out the company and making former Au Bon Pain executive (and Saladworks president) Paul Steck the new CEO.
Saladworks, which first started out in 1986 in Cherry Hill, NJ, currently has more than 100 locations in the United States and other countries. Its website can be found at https://www.saladworks.com/
