Saladworks, a Conshohocken restaurant franchise with about 100 locations in 12 states, said it signed a 15-store agreement with a franchisee in Singapore.

The first location in Singapore is slated to open next year, with two more to follow in 2013, Saladworks said. Saladworks was founded 25 years ago in the Cherry Hill Mall.

In early 2008, Commerce Bank founder Vernon W. Hill II became a minority investor.    - Harold Brubaker
