Saladworks has partnered with ghost kitchen company Combo Kitchen and is opening 20 new locations through ghost kitchens. They are scheduled to open on March 25 across Central Florida. 

“We are excited to expand our brand into Central Florida through our partnership with Combo Kitchen,” said Brian Farris, Chief Development Officer of WOWorks, the parent company of Saladworks. “Normally, expanding into an entirely new market is costly for potential franchisees. This partnership allows us to gain new customers without needing to invest upfront in a brick-and-mortar store. We also gain additional benefits, such as raising Saladworks’ brand awareness in new regions and giving our guests more points of delivery and pickup.”

Some of the food will be produced through Combo Kitchen’s agreement with the Florida-based restaurant chain WingHouse Bar & Grill.

“We are seeing a huge and growing demand from new and established restaurant brands to utilize our ghost kitchen franchise network to expand their footprint and increase revenue streams,” said Hossein Kasmai, founder and CEO of Combo Kitchen. “This partnership between WingHouse and Saladworks is a perfect example of how Combo Kitchens facilitates win-win situations for restaurant owners looking to capitalize on the growing takeout and delivery market with minimal investment or disruption to operations.”

In the past year alone, Saladworks has grown by more than 42 restaurant locations, entering new markets such as Michigan and Nevada.
