Seed Eatery’s Successful Shift During The Pandemic

Published On January 28, 2020

Seed Eatery started this journey with a genuine love of healthy, but tasty food. Their lifestyle is shaped by the belief that natural and fresh bowls of healthy food boost your spirits. They created Seed Eatery for people who appreciate wholesome and balanced meals with colorful vegetables, whole grains, healthy fats, and lean proteins. Everything on their menu is farm fresh and made from scratch.

After 8 years in the restaurant industry, Yurhelevich and Gorin said they opened Seed Eatery, because there is a need for a place that’s 100% free of gluten, dairy and egg. The SBDC has worked with Seed Eatery since the birth of their idea to open up a health conscious restaurant. The owners did in depth research and development for two years before coming to the SBDC and presenting their niche concept. The small business development center aided in finding the perfect location for their dream restaurant, along with reviewing their business plan, and discussing the financial and capital needed to get started.

Seed Eatery opened in February of 2020, amidst the adversity in a pandemic. They moved quickly afterwards in creating a website and then soon after an app. Because of the pandemic, they had to pivot quickly to a more delivery and take-out approach which has been successful for the new business. The app they created makes online ordering safe and easy, with a pay feature for a contactless pick up experience. The app also remembers your orders to make it even quicker than ordering in person, along with a rewards program.

At Seed Eatery, it is their mission to spread healthy behavior and wellness, so everyone can have a healthier life to accomplish their goals. By serving healthy, natural, and balanced food, they are creating a community that will come to a new understanding of health and prosperity.

Their kitchen is free from gluten, sugar, eggs, and dairy, and also includes a variety of vegetarian and vegan options. They partner with local farms to provide the best quality food which is packed with the highest amount of flavor and nutritional value. Their goods are made with organic and non-GMO ingredients, without coloring or preservatives.
