Trendy fast-casual restaurant CoreLife Eatery will open its first Southtowns location in Hamburg.
The 100-seat store is destined for a vacant, 3,200-square-foot space in the McKinley Plaza on McKinley Parkway next to arts and crafts store A.C. Moore.
The restaurant is known for its made-to-order entrees including bone broths and salads using grass-fed beef, organic tofu or free-range, antibiotic- and hormone-free chicken. The health-conscious chain does not serve sodas or highly caffeinated sports drinks, nor does it use high-fructose corn syrup, food coloring or genetically modified organisms. It also does not use microwave ovens.
CoreLife will be part of a a 7,950-square-foot addition to the plaza. The rest of the space will be devoted to retail.
CoreLife has locations in Amherst and Clarence.
