Another Gluten Free “Fast Food” Restaurant in the works!
If you live a gluten free lifestyle, you know how hard it is to eat on the run. Either you have to pack a lunch, or you eat a lot of salads (hold the croutons, please…). Just stopping at any fast food joint is not an option. Amy’s Kitchen will be providing the needed convenience that those on a gluten free diet demand.

America is getting another all-vegetarian drive-thru next month. Amy’s Kitchen, a company known for its vegetarian convenience food and frozen meals, will open its first restaurant in Rohnert Park, California, a city north of San Francisco.
Quick service and cheap prices won’t mean fat-laden mystery meat when Amy’s Drive Thru opens in July. The restaurant will offer meat-free burgers, burritos, macaroni and cheese, pizza, salad, and chili, as well as milkshakes and vegan non-dairy shakes. Each menu item can be ordered vegan or gluten-free, the company says, and every ingredient is non-GMO. More than 95 percent of the products are organic, and much of the ingredients will be locally sourced. On top of that, the menu is peanut- and egg-free for patrons with allergies.
This development is a win for vegetarians and animal lovers. The number of vegetarian diets in America has more than doubled in the past five years; 16 million people in the U.S. are now vegetarian or vegan. Amy’s Drive Thru, which follows trailblazing meat-free fast food outlets like Evolution in San Diego, is part of a vegetarian trend on the rise. Vegetarian and vegan options are increasingly appearing on restaurant menus and more Americans are including meat-free meals in their diets than ever before.
