WOWorks to Acquire The Simple Greek

In a deal expected to close on April 1, WOWorks plans to acquire The Simple Greek, a fast-casual Mediterranean concept founded by Marcus Lemonis of CNBC’s “The Profit.” 

WOWorks was formed in December when Centre Lane Partners, parent company of Saladworks, acquired Garbanzo Mediterranean Fresh and Frutta Bowls.

The Saladworks management team will take over The Simple Greek infrastructure and operations to align them closely with the Garbanzo Mediterranean Fresh brand to obtain cost efficiencies, drive business growth and overall brand recognition.

Founded in 2015, The Simple Greek serves Greek food made with fresh and imported ingredients cooked using authentic family recipes.
