NEW! Replenish Cafe Opening August 2017

A popular Lancaster figure is set to take the helm at a new healthy eating café within a busy city health club.

Tom Wilkinson is set to launch Replenish Kitchen in the 3-1-5 Health Club, Mannin Way on 7th August.

The entrepreneur is well known by many in the area for providing a warm welcome at The Fenwick Arms, part of the Seafood Pub Group.

Tom said: “I loved my job, but when I was approached about this new venture, it was too good to miss and I knew it was now or never.

“I have forged a good working relationship with the owners of the gym in recent years and knew just how busy it was from morning until night.

“There is a real community spirit here and a lot of advice is offered to members who want to ensure they eat well to train well. The gym has recently launched a new service called ‘The Academy” which groups PT sessions with nutritional advice, so the Replenish Kitchen offers a perfect synergy.”

Everything on the menu, from protein pancakes to carb loading jacket potatoes, will have macros detailed so that people can track their food intake.

There will also be treat choices for anyone who feels they deserve a little pick-me-up after a grueling session.

Tom added: “The club has some 4,500 members with potential for further growth and we hope they will consider Replenish Kitchen as their go-to venue for a pre-workout caffeine fix or post workout refuel.

Encouraging members to continue eating well outside of the gym’s four walls, the Replenish Kitchen will offer clean meat boxes to order and prepped meal boxes for a week, month or even a year.

Additionally, Replenish will be providing office lunches for businesses on the park, hosting their own foody events as well as children’s parties alongside the club’s Little Stingrays.

“I moved here four years ago and learned all about hospitality from the very best in the business. Now it’s time to start the next exciting chapter of my life.”

Sean Thornton, Owner and Director of 3-1-5 said “It is great to be working with a fellow entrepreneur who shares the same values for customer service and expertise which will be at the forefront of our business”
