The restaurant incorporates scratch cooking with flavorful source ingredients and a fast, casual service line for a healthy and affordable eating alternative.

As part of the CoreLife Eatery’s commitment to wellness and the community, it is offering a pre-opening opportunity to enjoy its food while also benefitting a good cause. On Thursday, May 4 from 11:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., the restaurant will host a ‘pay what you want’ day where all guests can pay what they would like for their meal’

All proceeds will be donated to Welcome House of Northern Kentucky, which works to end homelessness by offering a continuum of services to their clients that helps take them from housing uncertainty to housing stability.

On May 5, at 10 a.m., Florence Mayor Diane Whalen will be on hand for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate CoreLife Eatery’s grand opening.

CoreLife Eatery offers a 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 without antibiotics or hormones, and the bone broth is slow simmered all day for maximum taste and nutrition.

CoreLife Eatery credits creating a menu that tastes great because it’s healthy as the secret to its success.

“Customers have been trained to believe that healthy food cannot taste good, but we are debunking that myth,” says Todd Mansfield, partner and Wellness Champion for CoreLife Eatery. “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 and Ohio as an increasing number of people embrace the ability to eat healthy and powerful foods on a daily basis.

The first location opened in Syracuse, New York, in 2015, and additional locations in Upstate New York and Ohio opened last year. The brand is growing rapidly and additional locations will be announced as they are solidified.

CoreLife Eatery features fresh juices, lemonades and other beverages.

The brand recently began franchising with plans to significantly expand the number of communities they can serve each day.

“We are confident that the Florence community will soon understand firsthand why our food has become an integral part of the everyday lives for those from all walks of life,” says Scott Davis, president of CoreLife Eatery.

During his tenure as Chief Concept Officer at Panera Bread, Davis says he 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. Its staff proactively share their food concepts as well as wellness ideals through talks at local organizations and through 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 nationwide, including both corporate and franchise restaurants, in the next five years.
