Saladworks, the Conshohocken-based fast-casual chain, is planning to open as many as 20 new locations in Greater Philadelphia and New Jersey in spite of the pandemic, writes Laura Smythe for the Philadelphia Business Journal.

The chain wants to launch the new locations over the following nine months, according to Saladworks Vice President of Franchise Development Eric Lavinder.

Royersford, Fort Washington, Media, Springfield, Trexlertown, and Quakertown are among the Pennsylvania locations the brand is eying for its expansion plans.

The national chain has already debuted 28 new stores this year with several more slated to open. In fact there are 20 new deals already in the pipeline for next year.

The brand also opened its first Canada location this week, which will exclusively offer takeout and delivery. A total of ten stores are scheduled to launch in Canada this year.

Now, the company has decided to hone in more on its core, suburban markets as it is uncertain when office workers will be returning to the city for work.

“We haven’t sold out our core market,” said Lavinder. “That is a huge missed opportunity for the growth of the brand.”
