The Big Salad - Fast-Casual Salad Bar Franchise

The Big Salad is a salad-based concept for a fast-casual brand.

Profile

ABOUT THE COMPANY

At the heart of our franchise is the idea of “family”. We want to provide our customers with food that is always fresh and in a welcoming atmosphere and make each of our franchisees feel a part of something bigger.

The Big Salad is a franchise riding the wave of growing demand for fresh, healthy fast-casual food. By joining our national team, you get the benefits of being your own boss but now without the support and strength that comes from being part of a successful brand and franchise.

Over the next ten years, The Big Salad plans to open 100 stores in strategically located metro areas across the US.
