LEO’S MARKET & EATERY TO OPEN 3RD LOCATION IN MCCORDSVILLE
Hybrid grocery and eatery offering fresh, local options is experiencing exponential growth
OCTOBER 2020, MCCORDSVILLE, INDIANA – Leo’s Market & Eatery recently began construction on its third store; it is expected to employ about 40 people and slated to open in early 2022 in McCordsville, Indiana. The 7,200-square-foot hybrid grocery and eatery, located at the intersection of County Road 900 North and Olio Road, will join Leo’s flagship location in Greenfield and its Noblesville store, which successfully opened in 2021.
You can fuel-up at Leo’s, however, not on gasoline alone. Leo’s uniquely combines the best features of a convenience store and a local grocery store with an always-fresh eatery. Leo’s aims to provide convenience for families trying to make healthy choices with limited time. The focus of the store and its employees is to help each customer conquer their day. The large store footprint allows ample room for the market to showcase its fresh produce, breads, cheeses, a wide selection of beverages and fresh-ground bean-to-cup coffee. In the eatery, Executive Chef Matt Chappell offers freshly prepared bakery items, including Leo’s signature kolaches – a type of pastry stuffed or topped with sweet or savory filling — as well as the eatery’s highly customizable Power Bowls, salads, and popular house-made soups.
“Leo’s is not your typical ‘convenience store.’ We pride ourselves on providing chef-inspired meals and made-to-order salads and pastas at our eatery with that quick and convenient factor still there; even offering a drive-thru option for those on the go. Not only can you get made-to-order food, but you can also pick up market items like milk, fresh produce, or a bouquet of flowers without having to get out of your car,” said Stephanie White-Longworth, President of Leo’s Market and Eatery.
Leo’s offers special deals every week via its rewards program, weekly food tastings of its products, and is dedicated to ‘giving back’ to each community in which it resides; and McCordsville will be no different. One of the core values of the company is to give back; an effort bolstered by a paycheck contribution program matched by the company and dine-to-donate events held monthly which benefit local nonprofit organizations.
