SoFresh, a healthy fast-food eatery, opens in Lakeland

LAKELAND — If you’re already struggling to maintain your “eat healthy” New Year’s resolution, there’s a new South Lakeland quick eatery that might be able to help.

SoFresh, billed as a healthy fast food concept based in Tampa, opened its Lakeland location Wednesday morning.

Clay Donato, the vice president of development for SoFresh, said the new location at 4756 S. Florida Ave. has been in development for about a year.

“I think the market has been looking for some healthy alternatives for a while,” Donato, 32, said. “There’s not a lot of options in this market for the kind of food we serve.”
