Saladworks plans 25 new stores in 2012

Saladworks, the 100-store, Conshohocken-based company that calls itself the nation's "largest fresh-tossed salad" chain, says it plans to open 25 new stores this year, and that it has signed deals to expand beyond the Northeast and open 73 new stores in California, Washington State, Texas,  Arizona, Florida, Louisiana, South Carolina, and Washington, DC.

Last month founder and chairman John Scardapane said company franchisee plans to open 3 stores in Singapore in the next two years, and eventually a dozen more. "We've got the tools and the drive to grow in other countries," he added.

Saladworks investors include former Commerce Bank boss and longtime Burger King franchisee Vernon Hill of Moorestown.
