Wellness-Focused QSR Concept to Build Out Valley Presence Alongside Local Restaurateur
Wilmington, NC (Restaurant News Release) Clean Eatz, the award-winning wellness restaurant concept heralded as one of the fastest-growing concepts in its industry, has secured an agreement with Cory Dugan, a restaurant industry veteran, to develop two new franchise locations in the Scottsdale area. Site selection is currently underway, with plans for the first venue to open its doors later this year.
Dugan joins the Clean Eatz family after 30 years spent with Brinker International, a leading multinational hospitality company, where he served as Vice President of Operations for his final five years. A role he credits as having instilled him with an acute understanding on the importance of building relationships with guests, leading with passion and direction, and having purpose in everything that’s done on behalf of staff and the community.
“When my family and I decided to move back to Arizona, I had planned on that being the end of my time in the service industry. But that was before we were introduced to Clean Eatz,” Dugan said. “We’d buy dozens of their meal kits at a time and quickly became familiar with their culture and commitment to helping customers on their individual health journeys. I knew it was something I wanted to be a part of.”
Clean Eatz has carved out a specific niche for itself within the restaurant space, attracting loyalty not only from fitness enthusiasts, but everyday individuals and families wanting accessible, affordable, nutritious meal options that fit any lifestyle. And as yearly demand within the health food market continues to rise, so too will the Clean Eatz brand, driving further development for the franchise in new and existing locales around the country.
“This latest deal comes on the heels of an additional 2-unit deal that was recently secured in the Glendale area,” said Evonne Varady, Co-Founder of Clean Eatz. She hopes to build on these numbers in the near future given Phoenix’s position as one of the “faster growing markets in the United States, with a unique appeal to wellness fanatics and major brands within the sector.”
