CoreLife Eatery to open in Lancaster
A restaurant chain geared for healthy lifestyles is opening its doors in Lancaster next Thursday.
CoreLife Eatery, best known for its dishes comprised of grains, a variety of greens, and broth-based dishes, has moved into the Shoppes at Belmont on Fruitville Pike. All of the eatery’s dishes are free of trans fats, artificial additives and GMOs. The chicken and steak used in CoreLife's cuisine are from animals that were never given antibiotics.
The goal behind the fast-casual restaurant is to debunk the myth that healthy food can’t taste good, said Todd Mansfield, partner and Wellness Champion for CoreLife Eatery.
“We can’t wait for the community in Lancaster to experience CoreLife Eatery for the first time,” he said.
Keeping fast-pace schedules in mind, CoreLife combines convenience with eating clean, said Scott Davis, president and chief concept officer of CoreLife Eatery. Prior to CoreLife, Davis served as the chief concept officer for Panera Bread.
This new location will have approximately 50 employees and is one of more than 30 locations in and outside of Pennsylvania, said Stephen Donnelly, spokesperson for CoreLife. Officials said earlier this year they plan to open 40 new restaurants nationwide -- bringing the brand to more than 60 stores.
Headquartered in New York, CoreLife operates stores in Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Utah and Indiana. It wants to have 300 locations opened within the next five years.
