Saladworks: Not your typical salad bar

by June Portnoy

With the warm weather coming our way, what could be better than a nice cool, fresh salad for lunch or dinner? Unlike traditional salad bars at which you walk around choosing ingredients, many of which you might not recognize, Saladworks employs friendly, helpful staff who assemble your salad right in front of you, ready to serve.

This fast, casual-style restaurant offers significantly more choices than most salad bars with five fresh bases (ranging from spring mix lettuce to pasta) and approximately 50 different toppings.

All selections are displayed in front of you behind a glass window to help you identify the many varied selections. However, if you’re not sure what something is or can’t find what you want, a knowledgeable staff member will offer you assistance.

“Being we specialize in salads, we work hard to provide only the best quality salads made with the freshest ingredients,” says co-owner of the Newtown Saladworks, Nish Patel, who owns this establishment with his family. “All lettuce is washed, prepared and chopped daily on the premises.”

Univest: A unique banking experience

by June Portnoy

When Univest opened its doors on February 2nd at the Newtown Financial Center on 15 Swamp Road, customers immediately recognized that this new branch was unlike any other bank. For one thing, it has no teller lines or cubicles. Instead it has a high-tech modern appearance that resembles an Apple store.

Its open area with desks facing the front door enables both staff and customers to walk freely throughout the branch. Although not huge in terms of square feet, its use of glass walls gives the illusion of a larger building with lots of visibility.

From the exterior, its flat roof and stucco siding provides a modern feel.
