“Our food is top-quality fuel that complements the busy, active lifestyles of our clientele,” Scott Davis, president and chief concept officer of CoreLife Eatery, said in a news release. “We’re making clean eating easy, convenient and affordable without sacrificing a bit of flavor.”

The menu at CoreLife Eatery includes only ingredients free from trans fats, artificial colors, sweeteners, other artificial additives and GMOs. The chicken and steak are free from antibiotics and hormones, according to the release from the restaurant.
