Active lifestyle CoreLife Eatery expands to Lexington; try food during pre-opening benefitting God’s Pantry

CoreLife Eatery, an active lifestyle restaurant offering a variety of greens, grains and broth-based dishes, is expanding to Lexington at 4040 Finn Way, Suite 110 on Friday, August 11.

CoreLife Eatery brings together scratch cooking with flavorful source ingredients and a fast, casual service line for a healthy and affordable eating alternative.

As part of its ongoing commitment to wellness and the community, the new CoreLife Eatery is offering a pre-opening opportunity to enjoy their food while benefitting a good cause on Thursday, August 10 from 11:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

CoreLife Eatery will be hosting a ‘pay what you choose’ day where all guests can pay what they would like for their meal, all proceeds of which will be donated to God’s Pantry Food Bank.

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.

“Customers have been trained to believe that healthy food can’t possibly taste good. We’re debunking that myth,” Todd Mansfield, partner and Wellness Champion for CoreLife Eatery, said. “We create our menu from fresh and simple, top quality ingredients that taste great and our customers want to eat.”

The CoreLife Eatery concept has taken off quickly in New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Michigan and Utah as people embrace the ability to eat healthy and powerful foods every day. The first location opened in Syracuse in 2015, and additional locations in Upstate New York and Ohio opened last year. The brand is growing rapidly, additional locations will be announced as they are solidified. The brand just recently began franchising with plans to significantly expand the number of communities they can serve powerful and healthy options to every day. For more information on franchising opportunities, please visit the website.

“We know the Lexington community will soon understand firsthand why our food has become an integral part of everyday life for people from all walks of life,” Scott Davis, President and Chief Concept Officer of CoreLife Eatery, said.

During his tenure as Chief Concept Officer at Panera Bread, Davis led many key initiatives that drove the long-term success of the company and now applies his proven knowledge and expertise to this new and emerging concept.

CoreLife Eatery strives to promote active lifestyle activities by offering and participating in a number of health-related events in the community. CoreLife Eatery staff are proactively sharing their food concepts as well as wellness ideals through talks at local organizations and participation in community events.

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.
