Chop Stop has entered 16 franchise agreements to open new locations across three US states.

Under the deal, the company will be opening its first franchises in Nevada and Texas, including San Antonio. A total of 23 outlets are expected to open by the end of next year.

The restaurant chain has also commenced the construction of five new units in Southern California, which are expected to open in 2019.

Chop Stop founder and CEO Mark Kulkis said: “We are highly encouraged by the progress these agreements represent for the Chop Stop brand and franchise.

“Our team is looking forward to the expansion in our markets and getting to see this brand grow all around us.”

“Chop Stop has a wide and loyal customer base in California and the new franchises represent new areas that will fall in love with the fresh, wholesome and filling chopped salads.”

The company will open eight locations in San Antonio through a multi-unit restaurant development agreement, which includes an option to open eight more locations in Austin over the next several years.
