For CoreLife Eatery, an active lifestyle restaurant offering a variety of greens, grains and broth-based dishes, the future is looking bright in the Sunshine State.

CoreLife Eatery has recently signed a 32-restaurant development agreement with The Jan Companies, a second-generation family business headquartered in Rhode Island. The Jan Companies have an aggressive plan for opening restaurants in Florida, with the first eatery on track to open this August in the Carrollwood area of Tampa. Franchisee William Janikies and his family-owned operation have a proven record of franchising success and a history of building and bolstering brands like Burger King, Krispy Kreme, Popeye’s and more.

“The Jan Companies began with a single Burger King in 1969 and today operates 82 Burger King units nationwide. That’s the kind of tremendous success and growth we foresee coming from our partnership with CoreLife Eatery,” Janikies says. “There is endless potential with a brand like CoreLife Eatery, where the focus is on flavor and delivering fast, fresh, healthy food. This is a concept we know will be well received in Florida, and we can’t wait to deliver it to communities across the state, starting this summer with the Tampa market.”

“Mr. Janikies and his family have a long history of remarkable success within the restaurant industry. The Jan Companies are among the best restaurant owner-operators in the country, and we’re thrilled to have them on board building what we firmly believe is one of the best and most promising brands in the country,” Steve Corp, senior vice president of Franchise Development for CoreLife Eatery, says. “It has been evident from our first meeting that Mr. Janikies and his team are committed to CoreLife Eatery and its mission. We’re confident The Jan Companies will do a fantastic job representing and developing our brand in the State of Florida.”

This agreement is in addition to two large development deals CoreLife Eatery has recently cemented in Cleveland, Ohio and Raleigh, North Carolina.

CoreLife Eatery offers a wide variety of fresh ingredients that are transformed into custom-created dishes. All foods are free of trans fats, artificial colors, sweeteners, other artificial additives and GMO’s. The chicken and steak used are sustainably raised and never given antibiotics or hormones, and the bone broth is slow simmered all day for maximum taste and nutrition. Creating a menu that tastes great because it’s healthy is the secret to CoreLife Eatery’s success. 

Led by CEO Larry Wilson, the CoreLife Eatery executive team brings individual successes and skill sets to help the restaurant grow to meet the needs of more communities lacking convenient access to healthy and affordable eating alternatives. CoreLife Eatery plans to expand to 300 locations, including both corporate and franchise restaurants, nationwide over the next five years.
