Leo’s Market & Eatery celebrates its newest store in Noblesville

Community leaders looked forward to many years of future success during the grand opening event for the Noblesville Leo’s Market and Eatery.

The hybrid grocery and eatery, located at 11090 E. 146th St., which opened in May of this year, celebrated in a BIG way on becoming a part of the Hamilton County community with exclusive deals, free tastings and samples, and hourly giveaways from 1 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 27.

“We’re very happy to be a part of the Noblesville community, and we’re thrilled to have you all here to help us celebrate this grand opening, which has been a long time coming,” said Stephanie White-Longworth, Leo’s Market and Eatery president. 

“This is only the beginning for Leo’s,” she added. “Our flagship store opened in Greenfield in (2019), and our third location is currently under construction in McCordsville. We have a fourth store that we hope to have open on the south side of Indianapolis by the end of 2022.”

White-Longworth said she and her brother and business partner, Keith White, were perpetually grateful to the people who have supported them throughout the process of creating Leo’s Market and Eatery.

Noblesville’s Deputy Mayor, Matt Light, said he appreciated their efforts to strive for excellence, which Mayor Chris Jensen pushes his staff and Noblesville businesses to do as well.

He thanked the Hamilton County Chamber of Commerce for helping to host the ribbon cutting at the location at the intersection of 146th St. and Promise Road, which he said will serve as an anchor business for others in the area; part of a $30 million plus investment by the city to connect Hamilton Town Center and the 146th Street corridor to older parts of Noblesville.

Indiana businesses were on hand to provide free samples of products available in-store, including lotion samples from Indiana Soap Co., a Greenfield-based business; honey from Wildflower Ridge Honey, based in Anderson; and offerings from Viva Tia Maria, an Indiana-based business that makes authentic Hispanic tortilla chips and queso dip. Carmel-based ‘Press Start Energy’ provided samples of their signature energy drink, and customers had the opportunity to sample sauces from Midwest Fresh and St. Elmo’s.

Several exclusive events drew customers through the doors throughout the event. Discounts on eatery items including Leo’s signature fresh-baked kolaches and house-made soups were offered throughout the day. Hourly drawings were held with an amazing array of prizes, including a $200 shopping spree and a grand prize of a $500 Leo’s gift card.
