Foodservice Chain The Big Salad Acquired by Brent Sheena
CHARLOTTE, NC - A shift in the foodservice sector recently took place as fast-casual restaurant chain The Big Salad was acquired by entrepreneur Brent Sheena. Although terms were not disclosed, the deal includes management and support of the company's nine current locations in Michigan and Texas, along with intellectual property rights to support future evolution.
"The appeal of The Big Salad concept is that fast, convenient food can be fresh and nutritious, allowing the customer the ability to choose and customize a salad or wrap based on their dietary needs and preferences," said Sheena. "We are excited to grow The Big Salad brand and bring this healthy dining option to new cities and customers in the very near future."
Sheena acquired the chain from Founder and Chief Executive Officer John Bornoty who will stay on as a consultant and assist with franchise development, a press release explained. Now, Sheena is finalizing new locations in Owosso and Farmington, Michigan; York, South Carolina; Cincinnati, Ohio; and Jackson, Mississippi, in addition to a corporate store and training facility in the Carolinas this year.
Future plans for the chain are to expand to 50 additional franchises in new markets by 2025.
Additionally, the company headquarters were relocated to Charlotte, North Carolina, with a corporate office retained in Waterford, Michigan.
