CoreLife Eatery, an active lifestyle restaurant with a healthy concept that’s quickly sweeping the nation, announced exciting new opportunities for prospective franchisees to help the brand bolster its presence in Columbus and other areas of Ohio.
The CoreLife Eatery concept has taken off quickly in Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania, Utah, Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky and Indiana as people embrace the ability to eat healthy and powerful foods every day. The first location opened in Syracuse in 2015. CoreLife Eatery recently announced its plans to open 40 new restaurants nationwide next year, which will bring the brand to a total of more than 60 stores. CoreLife Eatery is on track to have 300 operating eateries in the next five years through a combination of company developed and franchised restaurants.
With the mission of making clean, healthy food accessible to local communities every day, CoreLife Eatery is experiencing rapid growth as customers continually seek healthy options compatible with their busy lives. Due to incredibly strong sales data and consistent community support and demand, incorporating franchise eateries in collaboration with company developed restaurants is the most effective way for the brand to launch its concept in key markets around the country, such as Columbus. CoreLife Eatery has already established its presence in Columbus with a restaurant that’s performed phenomenally well since opening in November 2016.
CoreLife Eatery’s overwhelming growth and success is the result of its leadership team’s strategic approach to selecting the best locations for brand expansion. CoreLife Eatery experienced incredible momentum and rapid development during its first two years of operations. With franchised and corporate restaurants now open in areas like Michigan, Eastern Ohio, and Kentucky, and a successful eatery in Polaris Towne Center that has solidified the company’s belief in the market, Columbus is the next feasible area for further expansion. This is an exciting opportunity for prospective franchisees and restaurateurs to get involved with one of the fastest growing brands in fast-casual dining.
“In just two short years, the response to the CoreLife Eatery model has been overwhelmingly positive. We’re thrilled to provide franchising opportunities which will help our brand meet customer demand, and bring this incredible, clean concept to new parts of the country,” Larry Wilson, president of CoreLife Eatery, says. “With the right franchisees, Columbus and other communities around the country will benefit from CoreLife Eatery’s refreshing take on healthy living and eating.”
CoreLife Eatery is beloved for its flavorful variety of greens, grains and broth-based dishes. All foods are free of trans fats, artificial colors, sweeteners, other artificial additives and GMO’s. The chicken and steak are sustainably raised, free of antibiotics and hormones, and the bone broth is slow simmered all day for maximum taste and nutrition. No sodas or sports drinks are offered, and the cuisine is never frozen, never microwaved, and always made from the freshest ingredients. It is impossible to order an unhealthy meal at CoreLife Eatery. Best of all, the menu is as delicious as it is nutritious. Creating a menu that tastes great because it’s healthy is the secret to CoreLife Eatery’s success.
CoreLife Eatery takes its mission as an active lifestyle restaurant seriously, and uses that mission as a platform to be an engaged supporter of community health and wellness. Through fitness festivals and special yoga feast events, CoreLife invites members of the public to enjoy delicious culinary creations and explore and improve upon their overall wellness. Additionally, CoreLife Eatery is an extremely philanthropic organization, which often hosts pre-opening opportunities for members of the public to try its food, and selects a local charity to benefit from a donation of the guest’s choice. These ‘Pay What You Choose’ days collect as much as $10,000 for organizations like rescue missions, children’s charities and hospitals.
CoreLife Eatery opened its first franchise eatery in 2017 with plans to significantly expand the number of communities where they can serve powerful and healthy options every day. Potential franchisees must show evidence of successful experience and an established infrastructure in multi-unit franchising, including but not limited to back office support, training, operations and leadership. Prospective franchisees must demonstrate financial ability to open eateries based on development agreements. CoreLife Eatery has a deep sense of community and expects franchisees to embody that same philosophy.
