FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., June 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Tossed®, home of garden fresh salads, crepe wraps and sandwiches, today announced its second annual Salad Fest - a summertime celebration of its most popular gourmet salads. Starting the week of June 21 and running through Labor Day, Salad Fest gives Tossed customers the chance to sample a different specialty or signature Tossed salad each week - eleven salads in all, each at the special price of just $6.95*.
"Salad Fest is back by popular demand," said Eric Clark, Chief Operating Officer of Tossed Franchise Corporation. "Our loyal customers love lots of things about Tossed, but at the top are probably two items - our fresh, wholesome salads and our variety. The Tossed Salad Fest allows them to indulge both. We invite everyone to stop in during the summer months, when salads are most popular, and sample what Tossed has to offer."
