CoreLife Eatery is prepared to open its first restaurant in Peoria.
The restaurant to open July 21 at 5040 North Big Hollow Road will be the company’s first in Illinois.
CoreLife Eatery is described as, “an active lifestyle restaurant offering a variety of greens, grains and broth-based dishes.”
The company is offering customers a chance to sample the restaurant’s offerings for free July 20 from 11:30 a.m. until 7:30 p.m.
Company officials say all foods are free of trans fats, artificial colors, sweeteners, other artificial additives and GMOs. The chicken and steak used are sustainably raised and never given antibiotics or hormones, and the bone broth is slow simmered all day for maximum taste and nutrition.
“CoreLife Eatery is a truly unique brand with so many exciting benefits,” said Clay Baxter, franchisee and operating partner. “We plan to open in five additional Illinois markets in 2018, including Champaign and Springfield. We are excited to bring this concept to Illinois, starting with Peoria.
The first CoreLife Eatery opened in Syracuse, New York in 2015. Additional locations in Upstate New York and Ohio opened last year.
President of CoreLife Eatery is Scott Davis, former chief concept officer at Panera Bread.
