After nearly a year in Syracuse, a local, healthy, lifestyle restaurant is announcing a new name and logo that more fully encompasses its mission. The new name of CoreLife Eatery (formerly Core) conveys the role the restaurant plays in total wellness, beginning with what goes into one’s body, but it doesn’t end there.
“Core was created to help connect busy people with healthy meal choices, but it has become so much more,” says founder/partner Larry Wilson. “We chose the name CoreLife to show our commitment to promoting and enhancing overall health and wellness in our community.”
The CoreLife concept is based on the notion that most people want to eat better but lack the time, knowledge or resources to do it. CoreLife Eatery strives to make it easy by offering a variety of fresh, natural, and, when possible, local ingredients that can be custom-combined quickly and deliciously for the customer.
CoreLife Eatery is already making an impact on the Syracuse area by participating in a number of health education and healthy, lifestyle-oriented activities. CoreLife has partnered with local organizations to offer special events, such as a recent yang yoga class that was offered free of charge to the public, sponsoring the Lake Effect Half Marathon, couples’ yoga, Pilates, high-intensity interval training class, and many more community health activities. CoreLife health professionals have also gone into the community to speak at local business and company wellness programs on nutrition and health. CoreLife Eatery recently had a local middle school class come in and eat clean healthy food as well as learn about sustainable farming. CoreLife caters to all age groups, fitness levels, and walks of life and invites everyone to experience it first-hand.
“Our goal is to be involved in offering more people access to a healthy meal and a healthy lifestyle,” says Todd Mansfield, wellness expert and business partner.
CoreLife has seen such success already in Syracuse that the restaurant is opening a second location in Webster, near Rochester, New York, next month.
The executive team of CoreLife Eatery is made up of seasoned wellness and restaurant professionals. Led by founder Larry Wilson, successful entrepreneurs including Todd Mansfield bring individual successes and skill sets to the team to help scale the restaurant to new levels on a nationwide basis. Larry Wilson, successful entrepreneur and restaurateur, has a proven track record of business success and owns a number of businesses, including more than 20 eateries, throughout the Northeast. Todd Mansfield, partner and a successful entrepreneur in the medical arena, brings valuable knowledge, and expertise in health and wellness to the CoreLife Eatery brand. Todd’s focus is purposely bringing healthy food that tastes great as a better alternative to the public. Todd has a 30-year history of practice in orthopedic and sports physical therapy and more recently has completed a fellowship in metabolic medicine and nutrition. The company plans to open a number of CoreLife Eatery locations over the next several years.
