The Giant Company of Carlisle, Pa., has introduced a Saladworks fast casual restaurant in its Camp Hill, Pa. store, providing shoppers the opportunity to purchase from Saladworks’ menu of customizable salads, wraps, soups and bowls.
Saladworks began its move into grocery stores in early 2019. It currently has restaurants in six grocery stores in Pennsylvania and New York, including locations in The Fresh Grocer, Wyncote, Pa., and a Philadelphia ShopRite store. According to the company, it has more than 10 new openings in grocery stores planned through Q1 of 2021.
“With COVID-19 bringing safety challenges to self-serve food bars in grocery stores everywhere, guests can feel safe with Saladworks, since the salad bars are situated in a separate space here, only staff has access,” said Eric Lavinder, VP of development for Saladworks, in a release. “Guests can get the same great experience and variety at a grocery location as they can a traditional restaurant.”
Much like its stand-alone locations across the country, the new in-store restaurant focuses on customization through its array of over 60 fresh and healthy ingredients. In addition to its signature recipes, Saladworks offers create-your-own options, as well as a limited assortment of grab-and-go items. Its menu also caters to a variety of diets and nutritional needs, including vegetarian, vegan, flexitarian, Keto, Paleo and Whole 30.
In addition to in-store orders, the Giant location will offer shoppers the option to order online through the Saladworks website or by calling ahead for pickup. Shoppers can also have Saladworks orders delivered using third-party delivery partners like Door Dash, GrubHub and UberEats.
Founded in 1986, Saladworks now has more than 100 locations across 18 states and two countries.
