After years of being asked, “When are you going to franchise Snappy Salads?” Chris Dahlander, founder of the award-wining chain Snappy Salads, is ready to franchise. Big Sal’s will be a smaller version of Snappy Salads, designed specifically for non-traditional sites such as airports, college campuses, and malls.
“Big Sal’s is a smarter version of Snappy Salads,” Dahlander says. “I’ve taken all of the experiences and lessons learned over the past six years and packed them into an easier-to-run restaurant.”
Big Sal’s is an outcome of a two-year incubation period where new ideas and operating procedures were tested, refined, or thrown out in order to create a successful business model.
Big Sal’s caters to people who want big portions of food served quickly in a cool environment. Big Sal’s offers guests a create-your-own-salad option as well as Big Sal’s Favorites, which take the guesswork out of creating a great-tasting salad. Big Sal’s also is known for its Big Baked Potatoes, premium soups, made-to-order wraps, and picnic salads.
Most food items are prepared on site, and the equipment requirement has been minimized so that the upfront capital commitment is lower.
