Eat Fit Go Healthy Foods, a new prepared food chain based in Omaha, plans to open the first of at least three Kansas City area stores at Corinth Square by December.
The 1,000 square-foot store in Prairie Village will stock a wide variety of healthy meals prepared at a new central kitchen under construction in the Kansas City area, said Sara Huse, director of brand management.
“We are really excited to be in Kansas City,” she said. “We feel there’s a need for a food revolution and people need healthy choices.”
While there will be tables and a microwave should customers decide to eat at the new venue, most people will pick up pre-prepared meals to dine at home.
The refrigerators are stocked with fresh meals that contain no preservatives, low sodium, high protein and allergy friendly. Huse said almost all of the meals have fewer than 600 calories.
“It’s a convenient way to eat healthy on the go,” she said.
Eat Fit Go was started by Aaron McKeever and Sam Vakhidov and its first store opened in Omaha in February. There are now three in Omaha, one in Lincoln and another opening in Norfolk, Neb.
Kansas City is the firm’s first venture outside the Cornhusker State, and additional stores also are expected to open in the Phoenix area.
