Freezer-section fave Amy’s Kitchen is opening an all-vegetarian drive-thru


n-AMYS-DRIVE-THRU-large570We’ve seen fast casual chains like Chipotle, Panera, and Subway pledge to get on a healthier bandwagon, but they’re going to have to act really fast to keep up with the healthy competition.

Amy’s Kitchen, the company loved for its convenient vegetarian frozen foods and grocery store staples, is opening its first drive-thru restaurant in Sonoma County, California, in July.

The restaurant is promising a fresh take (not microwaved!) on the quality organic products you’re used to getting in the freezer aisles, including meat-free burgers, burritos, macaroni and cheese, pizza, salad, and chili, as well as milkshakes and vegan non-dairy shakes, according to the Huffington Post.

Getting into the restaurant industry is a smart business move for the brand, considering there are over 16 million vegetarians and vegans living in the United States. And pretty much all of them (according to a much smaller Well+Good office poll) need decent road trip food. —Emily Karr
