Veg-Friendly Food Available Via Drive-Through

Vegans will be able to experience the convenience of fast food with an Amy’s Kitchen restaurant tentatively set to open in 2014.

More than 25 years ago, the Berliner family made cruelty-free cuisine convenient with their line of Amy’s Kitchen frozen vegetarian foods. The Berliners plan to increase the availability of their grab-and-go style of expedited eats by opening a drive-through restaurant, reports the North Bay Business Journal. The family purchased nearly three acres of land in Rohnert Park, CA and will submit plans for a 3,500-square-foot restaurant that they hope to open by 2014. The inspiration for a brick-and-mortar establishment came from customer suggestions nearly 15 years ago, but a healthy fast food restaurant is more appropriate now than ever. According to a 2013 study released by food-industry consulting company Technomic, approximately 64 percent of consumers report that eating healthy is important.
