On Monday, Jan. 23, Health Binge celebrated the opening of its first retail location in Las Vegas. Created by former NFL athlete and entrepreneur Gerome Sapp, the grab-and-go style health market focusing on freshly prepared meals provides customers with portion-controlled, gourmet meals at the ease of a fast food establishment.
The evening kicked off with a ribbon cutting ceremony held at the storefront near Jones Blvd and 215 Hwy. Founder and CEO, Sapp was joined by his Executive Chef Jackie McMahan, culinary team and retail store staff as he commemorated the official grand opening. Guests were treated to passed-sized portions of top-selling menu items including, Turkey Meatballs with Marinara, Rocket Pesto Shrimp, Mini Almond Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps, and the crowd favorite, Mini Gluten-free Strawberry Banana Muffins with homemade walnut cream cheese. Vegan patrons were treated to samplings of the Southwest Veggie Bowl. Along with food options, attendees could sip each of the three cold-pressed juices; Shamrock, Bitter-Sweet and Gold-Coast.
Sapp told guests the story of Health Binge, highlighting how he originally conceived the idea while in college at Notre Dame, and further developed the concept when he was assigned to create a business model in one hour by a professor at Harvard Business School. Reflecting on this, he noted, “The idea of creating a way for people to eat healthy food while on-the-go came out of necessity. I was starving and I didn’t want to eat vending machine food.” He continued, “We’ve crafted a menu with over 60 dishes because we wanted to give people a menu they won’t get tired of.”
