PHOENIX – ProteinHouse, the healthy-fit kitchen serving up everything from protein bowls, shakes and pancakes to cold-pressed nutritious juices, is excited to announce that its Arizona locations are now under new ownership. As experienced restaurant operators, marketing and hospitality experts, Co-Franchise Owners Eric Greenwald and Cody Starrett seek to expand the brand’s presence in the state.
Eric Greenwald brings over 30 years of hospitality experience to ProteinHouse. He served as president of Grimaldi’s Pizzeria/Forno Suprema for over 19 years, where under his leadership, Grimaldi’s ballooned from a single Arizona pizzeria to 43 corporate stores in 12 states.
