After last month’s announcement that CoreLife Eatery signed a deal with restaurateur Joyce Lunsford to open as many as 51 restaurants in Michigan and Indiana, CoreLife Eatery announced that the brand will open its doors in at least three new markets. Lexington, Kentucky, as well as Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio, will be the newest homes for CoreLife Eatery.

The company recently announced that they will be expanding their footprint, bringing a good tasting and affordable healthy eating alternative to communities around the country. As part of that commitment, the executive team at CoreLife Eatery is pleased to announce that the active lifestyle restaurant will once again be expanding into at least three new cities with the announcement of its 18-restaurant deal with Jacqueline Mansfield of Miami, Florida.

Mansfield has confirmed she will open at least three CoreLife Eatery restaurants this year. The first to open will be in May on Houston Road in Florence, Kentucky, a part of the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky metropolitan area. Then, Mansfield will turn her focus to The Summit at Fritz Farm, the East Coast’s newest premier retail facility for 2017 located in Lexington, Kentucky. CoreLife Eatery will open its doors there at the end of July and will represent the most prime real estate location that a CoreLife Eatery is located to date. In November, CoreLife Eatery will open in Centerville, Ohio, a suburb of Dayton, in front of the new Costco.

“I truly love what CoreLife Eatery stands for, we all need to eat healthier and improve what we put into our bodies. The energy, culture and ambiance of the brand all combine for a guest experience that is second to none,” says Jacqueline Mansfield.

Jacqueline Mansfield is a principal in Tristar Capital, a New York-based private investment company that is active in the development and long term ownership of large-scale mixed-use, retail, lodging, office and residential projects throughout the United States. Along with Tristar Chairman David Edelstein, Ms. Mansfield has been involved in high-profile retail projects like the Miracle Mile Shops in Las Vegas that was sold in October of 2016. Previously, Tristar also developed the W South Beach Hotel & Residences, which quickly became the most successful W Hotel in the world, and changed the hotel landscape in Miami Beach. Recently, Mr. Edelstein and Ms. Mansfield have been acquiring properties in Seattle, Silicon Valley and Miami’s Wynwood and design districts.

With greens, grains and bone broth as basic building blocks, CoreLife Eatery focuses on food first through high-level customization of menu items. The single line service system and a narrowly defined menu structure allow for maximum interaction with guests, which virtually eliminates order error or surprise. Simultaneously, there is great profit potential because of the simplicity of their ingredients and the end-to-end use of all vegetables, proteins and add-ons. Dressings, broths and beverages are made from scratch every day in each location so there is a noticeable differentiation from other dining alternatives.

Four essential pillars set CoreLife Eatery apart from competitors in the market place—quality of ingredients and fresh prepared recipes, the specialness of our eatery space driven by our design and choice of materials, our commitment to training before, during and after eatery openings and our connection to our “audience of influencers” through social media and local outreach. CoreLife Eatery uses social media to reinforce its strong position with its customers, boasting an impressive level of audience satisfaction that is at the top of the industry.

With its roots and corporate headquarters in the State of New York, there are currently six New York CoreLife Eatery locations operating in Syracuse, Webster, Greece, New Hartford, Henrietta and Vestal as well as two Ohio locations in Columbus and Strongsville. Led by President Larry Wilson, the CoreLife Eatery executive team bring individual successes and skill sets to help the brand grow and meet the needs of more communities lacking convenient access to healthy and affordable clean eating alternatives. CoreLife Eatery plans to expand to 300 total locations, including both corporate and franchise restaurants, over the next five years.
