Saladworks Nears January Opening in Ridgewood

Competition can't beat quality, selection or dining experience, owner Bob Gallo Jr. says.

A new healthy dining option will soon be opening in the village. Owner Bob Gallo Jr. tells Patch Saladworks on Chestnut Street will be opening on Jan. 21.

"We will provide extremely fresh, made-to-order, entree-sized salads, sandwiches and soups as an alternative food offering for health conscious consumers on the go," Gallo Jr., a Ridgewood resident said of the chain.

"We'll offer a large variety of flavorful salads with more than sixty natural ingredient offerings, signature dressings, proprietary soups and fusion and panini sandwiches. All of the salads will be made to order, chopped on-location and assembled right in front of the customer."

The Ridgewood location will hold 60 seats, with operating hours 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Delivery options are offered.

"Saladworks is unique because we offer high-quality, extremely fresh and healthy, quick service food at reasonable prices," Gallo Jr. said. "None of our competitors can offer the quality, breadth of product selection, dining experience or customer service that has become synonymous with Saladworks."

The chain is also capturing the convenience of the digital age. Customers can order and pay online or by downloading the free smart phone ap, Gallo said.

"Busy customers can order and pay for their meal online so when they arrive at the restaurant we can hand deliver their order right to their car so they don't need to park."

The store, located at 37 Chestnut Street, also features an interactive allergen menu. The widget allows customers to plug in what they're allergic or intolerant to; they can then see what's available on the menu or what would need to be adjusted.

"We want to become the healthy standard for our Ridgewood area customers," Gallo said.

Now that's just an idiotic comment Rdgwd. Do you feel the same way about a burger or a steak? And I'm not sure what your vegetable drawer looks like, but I certainly don't have many of the toppings they'll have available.

always love a good salad- even better when i don't have to make it all the time- excited about this- the not having to find a parking spot is the added bonus!

Can't wait! It's really hard to find a good salad. And like JAFO said, I can't fit all the veggies in my fridge or keep them fresh for long enough. This will be a nice addition to town.
