Amy's Kitchen Opens First U.S. Organic Drive-Thru
It’s rather surprising it took this long, but at last, in California, we now have the first U.S. drive-thru restaurant that is completely organic and vegetarian.
Amy’s is located in Rohnert Park, and already hugely popular in the short time it has been open. According to ABC news, the restaurant has been slammed the first week, with cars driving through non-stop, and lines inside heading back out the door.
“The actual demand has been a bit overwhelming,” Paul Schiefer from Amy’s Restaurant said. “So many people have shown up and it’s giving us a lot of hope that this is a concept that works.”
Included on the menu are vegan ‘Mac ‘N’Cheeze’ and gluten-free pizza. Everything in fact has a gluten or dairy-free option among its selection of burgers, burritsos, and chili and fries.
Amy’s Kitchen has been around for nearly three decades; in the beginning, it featured frozen meals that were vegetarian and organic. Today, Amy’s products are available in many grocery store and online, and they also operate food trucks and now a drive-thru.
Should business stay lucrative, Amy’s looks to open another location in the Bay Area. You can check out the menu and more on the drive thru’s website.
