Evolve Paleo Chef to Bring Health-Conscious Dining Options to Iowa River Landing

Café and Meal Delivery Service to Open Summer 2018

Coralville, IA—The Iowa River Landing announced that Evolve Paleo Chef, a health-focused café and meal delivery service, will be the next tenant to join the growing retail, dining and entertainment district. The Kansas City-based business will open its first Iowa location on East 2nd Ave, across from 30hop.

Evolve Paleo Chef’s unique business model allows customers to order up to a week’s worth of nutritious meals in advance, which are then cooked and delivered to their doors. Customers also have the option to purchase ready-to-heat meals, smoothies, snacks and cold-pressed juices on-site.

Managing partners Chris and Nikki Voss said they’re opening the new location to meet the needs of customers who want to eat healthy, but have little time to shop and prepare food on their own.

“We want to impact peoples’ lives by making it more convenient to eat real, healthy, great-tasting meals,” said Mr. Voss. “Being able to order a full week’s worth of fresh, healthy, chef-prepared meals and needing less than five minutes to prepare them takes the stress out of meal planning, cooking, and grocery shopping.”

A spokesperson from the Iowa River Landing echoed the excitement:

“We continue to look for new, intriguing business concepts for Iowa River Landing, and Evolve is a great fit for us,” said Deanna Trumbull, Director of Leasing. “Their health-conscious meal plans will provide delicious and convenient options for cooks and non-cooks alike.”

Coming Soon: Marquee Pizzeria & Bar

The Iowa River Landing is pleased to announce the latest addition to this exciting retail, dining, and entertainment district. Marquee Pizzeria & Bar, a full-service restaurant and bar, will open in the Fall of 2017. It will be located on East 2nd Avenue, on the northwest corner between Brides by Jessa and Evereve.

Marquee Pizzeria & Bar is a collaboration between partners Samuel Hall, Ravi Patel, Raj Patel, and Sajni Patel. All have worked together on various local restaurant and hospitality projects and are excited to be a part of the growing Iowa River Landing development.

Featuring signature brick-oven pizzas alongside a menu of appetizers, salads, and entrees, Marquee Pizzeria & Bar will be a hybrid of a restaurant and family style experience. “We encourage sharing between the table — this way you can try a variety of plates,” said co-owner Samuel Hall. “We want it to be very open and welcoming. Like a dinner with your friends and neighbors.” This welcoming style will extend to Marquee’s interior design, which Hall describes as “industrial urban. It’s like Brooklyn meets Little Italy.”

As the corner location features several windows, Hall and his partners want to capitalize on the abundance of natural light. “We’re using lots of patio style features inside to create that outdoor-type of social environment.” Also visible through all of the windows will be Marquee’s expansive bar. The restaurant will seat approximately 90 patrons.

Hall notes that those excited about Marquee Pizzeria & Bar should follow their progress by connecting on Facebook and Instagram. “We’ll share construction progress and updates but we’ll also be extending invites to our first preview event via social-media. Those that follow us online will be invited.”

“We care deeply about the success of the Coralville community and Iowa River Landing, and we found a clear opportunity here to support both at the same time,” co-owner Raj Patel said. “We are eager to join the burgeoning Corridor culinary scene.”
