On October 21st, Balanced Foods, our healthy pre-packaged meal brand, opened its 2nd Tampa Florida store in the thriving Mid Town area. Located in a centralized area of Tampa, this was a prime opportunity to offer a convenient hop to/from St Petersburg and those in the downtown area.
MID TOWN TAMPA FLORIDA HAS A NEW HEALTH FOOD STORE
Nicole Bullock, Director of Operations, said, "I cant tell you how great it feels to celebrate our 11th Balanced Foods grand opening in such a beautiful area of Tampa. The Mid Town area is such a centralized location which makes it easy for our customers who live in Tampa and 'St. Pete'. We've been doing home deliveries of our healthy pre-packaged meals to these areas in such high demand, it only made sense to open our second store here. Mid Town is a very active community of Tampa, with so much outdoor activities and health-centric people. It was a warm welcome from the community our amazing team are excited to bring our amazing, healthy comfort food menu to their lives."
EASY ACCESS FROM ST PETERSBURG and DOWNTOWN TAMPA
Nestled right off of W Kennedy Blvd and S Sterling Ave., the newest Balanced Foods location is next to the Chamberlin Law Firm and Happy Foot Spa.

Located less than two-miles east from highway 275, you're able to come in from St Petersburg across the Tampa Bay or from downtown Tampa, in no time at all.
Anthony Milton, CEO, said, "This was a strategically selected location for us. The Mid Town, Tampa area is well suited for our 'Fresh.Fit.Fast' healthy pre-packaged meal concept. Since we opened our first location in Wesley Chapel, we were already looking for our second location that would serve the St Pete's and Tampa area. As our brand continues to grow our hub-and-spoke model, we are already in talks with potential franchisees who are interested in further developing the Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Westchase communities and beyond.".

BALANCED FOODS OFFERS A TWIST ON TRADITIONAL MEAL PREP CONCEPT
Unlike traditional "meal prep" foods made popular over the past ten to fifteen years largely in part to the fitness and bodybuilding community, Balanced Foods menu of over 50 items, took a unique approach and features comfort food with a healthy twist with protein as the building block of every meal.
Michael-David Reilly, Director of Marketing, said, "Meal prep has garnered a not-so-appetizing reputation, and it leaves people thinking that eating healthy means consuming bland, boring foods that you have to force-feed yourself. Not at Balanced Foods. Eating healthy shouldn't mean suffering or restricting yourself from foods we all love. You can't build a sustainable lifestyle around that. So, we wanted to change the game, and we have with our entire menu from breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks from breakfast tacos and protein pancakes, to chicken enchiladas, chili mac 'n cheese, taco bowls and an entire low-carb category, where gourmet flavor is key."
WHY WE STARTED BALANCED FOODS
Michael-David continued, "Nutrition, as life gets busier with family, career etc., tends to be more about convenience, which sadly is also low in protein, high in carbohydrates and fat. That's where we had to start, with protein, which is the building block of sustainable health and weight management. You'll quickly see all of our meals are very high in whole foods protein using only the most premium cuts of chicken breast, 93/7 lean ground turkey, steak, salmon and shrimp. Ask anyone, we all know and want to eat healthier, it just comes down to time and what's doable. So we made eating healthier as tasty and convenient as traditional fast food, but with restaurant flavor and quality. We wanted an option that fit all of it. That's what created Balanced Foods. And we figured, if we wanted this, we can't be the only ones, and we've been right since day one!"
All stores are stocked and open 7 days a week for convenience from 7am-8pm Mon-Thur, 7a-7p on Friday, 8a-7p on Saturday and 9a-7p on Sunday. PLUS, you can also order online and have freshly prepared meals on your doorstep as soon as next-day by visiting www.BalancedFoods.com .
