The Eat Fit Go location at 2820 Pine Lake Road closed Monday.

Eat Fit Go, an Omaha-based chain that sells pre-packaged healthy meals, has closed its only remaining Lincoln location.

A sign posted Monday on the door of the store at 2820 Pine Lake Road read, "Thank you for your patronage & support. Unfortunately, we have closed this location."

The location had been open since March 2017. Another Eat Fit Go location at 84th and Van Dorn streets closed earlier this year.

The Lincoln locations were both franchises. Brock Hubert, the company's in-house attorney, said in an email that the company is "currently working on getting our meals back in the Lincoln market."

"We will hopefully be letting our customers know very soon via social media where they can continue to find our healthy, convenient, and great-tasting meals," he said, without offering specifics.

Eat Fit Go filed bankruptcy in September, saying at the time that it intended to restructure its operations. Bankruptcy documents indicated the company had more than 30 stores at the time. As of Monday, according to its website, it had 15.

Customers can still use gift cards at other Eat Fit Go stores in Omaha, but Dawn Steffen, who co-owns a similar Lincoln-based business, said she feels bad for customers with gift cards who might be inconvenienced.

So Steffen said her business, Source. Eat Fit., will offer a free meal to anyone who brings an Eat Fit Go gift card to one of the Lincoln business' four locations by Jan. 14.

Steffen also said she has agreed to replace standalone Eat Fit Go coolers at the Campus Rec with one from Source. Eat Fit. It will be available starting Sunday, she said.
