    Amy's Kitchen Opens All Veggie Drive-Thru with Gluten-free Twist

    Celiac.com 07/10/2015 - Ready for a revolution in healthy fast food? Amy's Kitchen thinks so.

    Looking to be more than just a frozen food company, food-maker Amy's Kitchen is staking a bet on healthy fast food by opening a healthy all vegetarian drive-thru restaurant in Rohnert Park, California.

    Amy's Drive-Thru will offer vegetarian burgers, burritos, pizzas, salads, macaroni and cheese, as well as milkshakes and vegan non-dairy shakes," according to the official company press release. Each menu item can be ordered vegan or gluten-free and every ingredient is non-GMO. Nearly all products are organic, and most ingredients are locally sourced. All meals are made from scratch, in under three minutes.

    "The heart of the Drive Thru menu is The Amy, a veggie burger the company developed over the course of over a thousand recipe taste tests," Amy's said in a press release.

    The restaurant opens in July, and will serve lunch and dinner, with plans to eventually serve breakfast. Diners will have a choice of meals that are gluten-free or dairy-free, and the pizza comes in either a rice or wheat crust. More than 95 percent of the products are organic, with many locally sourced.

    Disappointed it is all veggie, I want meat. And I agree that the taste of other Amy's products is disappointing. But I will try it, not many gluten-free options when in Rohnert Park and needing lunch.

    While I also am not a fan of Amy's Kitchen frozen goods, I am pleased to see that SOMEONE is trying to provide healthier choices in fast food. In Southern Florida the fast food available is abysmal, so it would be wonderful to have another choice. Good for them for their giving it a go.

    I like Amy's food, especially the Mexican and Indian entrees and pizza. Some of the soups are good, too. Maybe I'm biased because of the name, but I liked Amy's even before I had to eat gluten free. I hope their restaurant chain does well!
