Kristi Pencille and Stephanie Sawyer are about to bring something completely different to Rochester. They are introducing us to a successful franchise known as Saladworks. While you can find them all over the country, their location will be the first in Minnesota, and it will be right here in downtown Rochester. Why Rochester?

There are several quick-service options in the area, but nothing like Saladworks. We are both full-time working moms that often look for a quick, healthy option over our lunch hour or while running errands on the weekend. Bringing Saladworks to the community will help meet the needs of people just like us. - Kristi
