CoreLife Eatery looking to expand in Ohio
CoreLife Eatery is hoping to bolster its presence in Columbus and other areas of Ohio by offering new franchise opportunities.
The healthful food concept, which first opened in 2015, in Syracuse, now has locations in Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania,Utah, Ohio, Illinois and Kentucky. It plans to open 40 restaurants nationwide next year and is on track to have 300 operating eateries in the next five years through a combination of company-developed and franchised restaurants, according to a company press release.
Due to strong sales data and consistent community support and demand, incorporating franchise eateries in collaboration with company developed restaurants is the most effective way for the brand to launch its concept in key markets around the country, such as Columbus, Larry Wilson, president of CoreLife Eatery, said in the release. The brand has already established its presence in Columbus with a restaurant that's performed well since opening in November 2016.
"In just two short years, the response to the CoreLife Eatery model has been overwhelmingly positive. We're thrilled to provide franchising opportunities which will help our brand meet customer demand, and bring this incredible, clean concept to new parts of the country," Wilson said. "With the right franchisees, Columbus and other communities around the country will benefit from CoreLife Eatery's refreshing take on healthy living and eating."
CoreLife Eatery opened its first franchise eatery in 2017, with plans to significantly expand that number. Potential franchisees must show evidence of successful experience and an established infrastructure in multi-unit franchising, including, but not limited to back office support, training, operations and leadership, Wilson said.
Prospective franchisees must demonstrate financial ability to open eateries based on development agreements, Wilson said.
