Salad Creations Named #1 Restaurant Chain in 2009 on Restaurant Business’ Annual Future 50 List
FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., July 13 /PRNewswire/ — Salad Creations, offering a fresh alternative to fast-food for today’s healthy lifestyle, announced today that it achieved the top spot on Restaurant Business magazine’s 2009 Future 50 list. Currently available in the July issue, the Future 50 is the magazine’s annual ranking of the fastest growing restaurant chains between $25 million and $50 million in annual sales. Compiled each year by Technomic Inc., Salad Creations and other nominees have proven their concepts while still maintaining their innovative entrepreneurial spirit.
“We’re honored to be recognized by Restaurant Business as the number one restaurant chain in the country on their Future 50 list,” said Jeff Levine, founder and chief executive officer of Salad Creations. “This ranking is due to the combined efforts of our franchisees, area developers, suppliers and corporate staff. Our passion, teamwork and focus on guest satisfaction are the cornerstones of Salad Creations and we’re very pleased to have our hard work substantiated by this tremendous recognition.”
Headquartered in Margate, Florida, Salad Creations was developed by Levine in 2003 after realizing that an increasing number of consumers were looking for a nutritious and quick alternative to traditional fast foods. Salad Creations quickly emerged as that restaurant solution and today the brand operates more than 55 locations worldwide.
Each restaurant features over 40 ingredients to choose from including farm-fresh vegetables, fruits, cheeses, sliced meats, grilled chicken and salmon, and over 15 designer salad dressings, among others. Specially-trained Salad Chefs prepare each guest’s order and, if asked, can help match particular tastes to customize the salad experience. All salads can be either tossed or chopped and are available in two sizes — the “Full Creation” which includes unlimited throw-ins, or the “Junior Creation” for those seeking value at a lower price point. In addition to the “Create Your Own Salad” option, Salad Creations offers more than 10 featured salads, a variety of daily soup specials, fresh wraps, and a hot Panini.
“Innovation, flexibility and an entrepreneurial spirit are timeless business traits that have allowed Salad Creations to keep its focus on customer service and business success for our franchisees,” said Levine. “We share a common goal with our franchisees, which focuses on building and sustaining a profitable business and strong brand identity in this economy.”
Furthering its commitment to its franchisees, Salad Creations also offers extensive training programs and comprehensive operating systems designed to help build business. A broad franchise support team is geared to simplify operations and includes development and construction experts, operational support professionals, training managers and field marketing managers. Salad Creations also employs state-of-the-art technology and the latest point of sale terminals to help stores run more efficiently and cost effectively.
