CARROLLWOOD -

Evos, a health-conscious fast-food restaurant, is scheduled to open its fourth Tampa location on North Dale Mabry Highway in late June or early July.

The 2,100-square-foot restaurant will seat about 50 and also will have patio seating, according to the Tampa-based company founded in 1999.

Evos touts its goal of providing flavorful fast food while reducing calories and fat. Menu items such as milkshakes, burgers and French fries contain 50 percent to 70 percent fewer calories and less fat than those items at other restaurants, according to the company. Many menu items are vegetarian- and vegan-friendly.

The restaurant will be at 10205 Lake Carroll Way, at Dale Mabry Highway.

Carrollwood long has been a target market for the brand, said Evos cofounder Michael Jeffers.

“Carrollwood meets all of our preferred site characteristics such as an established residential neighborhood for night and weekend business; strong daytime access for lunch business; end-cap position (in the shopping center); easy access in and out of the center; ample parking; good co-tenancy mix; high vehicular traffic counts, to name a few,” Jeffers said.

The Carrollwood Evos will operate 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily and employ 15 to 20 full- or part-time workers.

In addition to its Tampa stores, there are seven elsewhere in Florida, as well as in Georgia and North Carolina.
