“I hate when I go to the kitchen looking for food, and all I find are ingredients.” If this sounds like you, you’re in luck!
The latest Clean Eatz franchise recently opened in the shopping center across from Concord Mills Mall where you find Viva Chicken and Jason’s Deli, thanks to local owners Sarah and Jason Conrad.
🥑 🍽️ 🐔 Clean Eatz is a healthy food restaurant that offers a variety of delicious and affordable options for their customers, and what better timing as we kick off National Nutrition Month!
The Clean Eatz franchise was founded in Wilmington, NC in 2011 with the mission to Change Livez through clean, balanced food. Clean Eatz Concord is the 5th location for franchise owners Sarah Conrad and her husband Jason Tuton, who have four other locations (Cornelius, Mooresville, Ayrsley, and South End). They also own the restaurant Barrel & Fork in Cornelius, NC.
So, why branch out into Cabarrus County? Katelyn Bauer, Field Brand Manager said, “People began requesting a Concord location. Residents of Cabarrus County were driving out to Cornelius and Mooresville and wanted a location closer to home.”
What makes Clean Eatz special? “This is a new concept for this area, and we are the only one in Cabarrus County.”
It’s great for busy moms, students, seniors, and anyone looking for quick, healthy meal options. Clean Eatz offers everything from a Fresh Cafe, frozen Grab & Go meals, Weekly Meal Plans, healthy snacks and desserts, and protein-packed shakes and smoothies. They even have their own line of supplements.
- All the meals are made on-site with no preservatives, and they have options for everyone. They cater to all types of diets…low carb, keto, extra protein, vegan, vegetarian, and more!
Every single meal is weighed and measured and labeled with a nutritional breakdown, ingredients, and allergens so there’s no guesswork! It’s healthy eating made simple. In fact, these three gentlemen from Hendrick Motor Sports were the Concord location’s first customers ever! Way to go guys.
So How Do You Get Started?
Let’s start with their Weekly Meal Plan. The meal plan menu rotates weekly and comes out every Tuesday, keeping things new and interesting. You simply place your online order, pick up your meals, take them home, and then heat and eat. These meals are refrigerated and stay good in your fridge for 5 days. If you don’t eat them, you can freeze them for up to 5 months!
- Insider Tip: Download their App and sign up for their Weekly Menu emails. You can preview and order right from your smartphone! The App also includes a workout plan you can download based on beginner, intermediate or advanced plans.
Next, they offer Grab & Go meals. These are fully cooked, individual serving, pre-portioned frozen meals in microwave-safe containers. All you have to do is heat and eat. They stock over 75 different options daily!
- Katelyn shared with us that some of the most popular meals are the Nashville hot chicken, the meat lover pasta, the cheesy chicken teriyaki bowl, and the Loaded potato bowl. And of course, PIZZA! 🍕 The GLUTEN-FREE, Cauliflower crust, pizzas are a crowd-pleaser. They always have at least 5 different pizzas to choose from. We’ve heard these are the BEST cauliflower pizzas out there… we agree.
Finally, anyone who wants to eat fresh at the restaurant can do so at the full-service cafe. You can order a healthy lunch or dinner to enjoy in the cafe which includes burgers, wraps, flatbreads, meltz, build-your-own bowls, smoothies, and more. All their protein smoothies have 25+ grams of protein. A favorite is the 🍌 FROZEN CHOCOLATE BANANA 🍫.
- Their #1 priority is customer service. Katelyn said, “We don’t say no or not possible. We believe in going above and beyond.”
Because they are locally owned and operated, Katelyn says “they want to be a part of the community. By providing healthy food options in Concord, as well as offering education and support, we hope to Change Livez in our community.”

What Did We Sample?
The Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese was a hit with my daughter’s health-conscious boyfriend. 👍🏼
The Blueberry Muffin Clean Crunch was addicting! It was a good thing I was sharing it, or I would have eaten the whole bag! The Dessert Bars are a great pick-me-up to have in my bag when my day runs long. Who doesn’t love dessert before dinner?!
Check out all of their meals on their website and be sure to follow them on social on Instagram and Facebook.
