American Fork – CoreLife Eatery, an active lifestyle restaurant offering a variety of greens, grains and broth-based dishes, on Friday opened its first Utah location at 197 N. West State Street in American Fork. CoreLife Eatery brings together scratch cooking with flavorful source ingredients and a fast, casual service line for a healthy and affordable eating alternative.
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 GMOs. The chicken and steak 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.
“The brand focuses on bringing clean, healthy and great tasting foods to everyone every day, along with health and wellness,” said Rick Timmons, CoreLife Eatery franchisee partner. “I am excited to bring this concept to Utah, starting with American Fork.”
The CoreLife Eatery concept has taken off quickly in New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Kentucky and Michigan. The first location opened in Syracuse in 2015, and additional locations in Upstate New York and Ohio opened last year. CoreLife just recently began franchising with plans to significantly expand the number of communities they can serve. The brand plans to expand to 300 locations, including both corporate and franchise restaurants, nationwide over the next five years.
“We are confident that the American Fork community will soon understand firsthand why our food has become an integral part of the everyday lives for those from all walks of life,” said Scott Davis, president of CoreLife Eatery. 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.
