Health food eatery coming to Corporate

Fresh Kitchen—a new food service concept that features healthy meals to go—is planning to open its first location at 7474 Corporate Blvd., across from Towne Center and adjacent to Christian Street Furniture, by early May. The food store will offer more than 30 breakfast, lunch and dinner to-go items for a wide range of dietary lifestyles, from vegan to Paleo, says Ryan McNeil, who co-owns the business with Chef Daniel Dreher. The menu will feature generous selections of poultry, beef, bison, pork and seafood, as well as an impressive salad bar. A partnership with The Big Squeezy—which recently opened near the Perkins Road overpass—is also in the works, and McNeil says Fresh Kitchen hopes to capitalize on other such partnerships within the community. “We are working with a nutritionist to make it more affordable and easier for people to adopt a healthier lifestyle,” he says, adding that Fresh Kitchen aims to use local and organic ingredients whenever possible while keeping menu items mostly in the $8 to $12 price range.
