Clean Eatz, a national restaurant and meal-order franchise that specializes in healthy, low-calorie meals, is set to open an outlet in Lancaster on Thursday.

The 2720 square-foot restaurant, located at 1876 Fruitville Pike in Manheim Township, will offer a range of customizable bowls, burgers, sandwiches, wraps, smoothies and more.

The owners are Steve and Tamara Dyer, who are remodeling the former V&S Sandwich shop in the old Kmart Plaza, according to Steve Dyer.

In addition to an onsite café menu, Lancaster Clean Eatz will offer weekly meal plans that include low-carb, gluten-free or extra protein options.

Each dish is prepared in house. The menu includes dishes, like “Good for You Nachos,” “Buffalo-Style Cauliflower,” and “Hot Wing Wrapped Up.” 

Diners also can pick healthy snacks, such as hummus and buffalo cauliflower, and smoothies. Snacks range in price from $4.99 to $6.49.

Pre-made meals are also available.

Based in Durham, North Carolina, Clean Eatz was founded in 2011 by Don and Evonne Varady.

Since it started franchising in 2015, the company has grown to 38 locations throughout the eastern half of the country, with another 20 slated to open over the next 12 months.

The chain’s headquarters is currently closed due to Hurricane Florence, according to the company’s website.
