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.

Photo: Amy's KitchenLooking 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.

No processed food is healthy, have you ever tried Amy's Kitchen stuff? It's not very nice.

For times that require eating on the go, like traveling, this would be a great option. I hope this does well and expands to more areas.

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 GF 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!

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I've been gluten free for just over a year and have been pretty good about staying away from processed foods and bread substitutes.

Omg.

if you have celiac and you eat gluten, you will feel terrible and do damage to your body. there isn't any 'morning after' (for lack of a better term) tried and true remedy. if i am accidently glutened (and i am insanely careful, so this does not happen often anymore) i find that drinking plenty...
